ADVENTURES OF TINTIN dvd review and movie viewing kit


The incomparable team of Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson brings the world-renowned stories of Hergé to life in the rollicking and wildly imaginative THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN, bursting onto Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD (all with UltraViolet™), On Demand and for Digital Download on March 13, 2012 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Winner of the 2012 Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film, THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN has been called “a grand thrill ride of a treasure hunt” (New York Post) and the “most delightful dose of pure entertainment since Raiders of the Lost Ark” (Minneapolis Star Tribune). Featuring groundbreaking and visually-stunning motion capture animation, an outstanding cast of voice talent headed by Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis and Daniel Craig, and a thrilling story filled with non-stop action, THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is a must-own film that the entire family will enjoy watching again and again.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson comes the epic adventures of Tintin. Racing to uncover the secrets of a sunken ship that may hold a vast fortune — but also an ancient curse — Tintin and his loyal dog Snowy embark on an action-packed journey around the world that critics are calling “fun for the whole family.” (ABC-TV Chicago)


I had never really heard of TinTin before watching this movie and I have to tell you this movie got me interested in him.  I love when a movie can do that.  Now this movie is entertaining and exciting for all ages - old and young. 

I personally love the dog, Snowy.  I want a dog just like that.  My son loved the adventure of this movie as did my fiancee.  We were constantly laughing and were excited to see what would happen next.  This is definitely a must have movie for every family. 

We were also fortunate to receive a movie viewing kit with this movie as well which featured the following items...

  • Snowy TY beanie
  • Desktop Globe
  • Chocolate "Gold Coins"
  • Compass
  • Magnifying Glass

  • This kit made the movie even better for my kids as they pretended to be helping TinTin and Snowy solve the mystery along the way.  They have since then made up their own mysteries to solve with TinTin and Snowy.  I love to see their imagination at work so much.  This movie was a great addition to our Spring Break!

    The movie is currently available where dvds are sold and online at for $ 16.99.  So be sure to grab a copy today for the whole family to enjoy.  Also do not forget Easter is fast approaching and this would be a great addition to the basket for your little adventurer.

    * I received the above mentioned product solely for review purposes.  The above mentioned opinion is completely my own and completely honest.
