Empire loves The Adventures of Tin Tin

The Adventures of Tin Tin has finally opened, and critics have given it a warm embrace. Empire magazine paid it a very well worded compliment: "Spielberg has brought a boy’s heart, an artist’s guile, and a movie-lover’s wit.” 

The first bit of good news is that the motion capture & 3D technology is, apparently, not only excellent, but merges well into the story, without being a distraction. The second bit of good news is that Spielberg captures the books' boyish sense of adventure with a nostalgic wit that hearkens back the heyday of Indiana Jones. Good news indeed.

The Adventures of Tin Tin should therefore do well at the box office and be a good companion piece to Spielberg's other 2011 movie - the considerably more Oscar-y War Horse (trailer to follow).

And a rad clip featuring Tin Tin's dog, Snowy:
