My bias towards Steven Spielberg is unavoidable but I honestly don't think that would have affected my thoughts about The Adventures Of Tintin. This is a wonderful film! Like so many people, I grew up with Tinin. I read lots of the books and watched the animated tv show. It's high adventure spoke to me and when you think about it, everything in a Tintin story is of this world. There is no fantasy realm of monsters or super-villains and, although heightened reality, the situations are human. I think Spielberg and Peter Jackson have collaborated for an incredibly faithful adaptation which is a sight to behold. It looks magnificent. The characters are true to the original Herge stories and while they have amalgamated several stories for creative purposes it all results in an adventure which honours the legacy and introduces Tintin to a whole new generation. The motion-capture animation sets the bar very high for others to follow and it's a movie experience to celebrate. I have watched it several times already and it gets better each time. I rate this in my top 10 of the year.
