Spirited adventurer and journalist Tintin has made his much-anticipated return. Are his quick wit and cute canine companion what they used to be? What do Tennessee viewers think of his return in "The Adventures of Tintin"?
"I've always loved Tintin. I was ecstatic to hear he was getting a return to the spotlight. I had mixed feelings when I found out this was in a movie format. Those mixed feelings shifted to severe disappointment upon seeing the artistic style of the film. Now that I've finally seen it, I feel utterly betrayed. At the end of that roller-coaster of emotions, I'm left completely unsatisfied." -- Sean Basil, 35, Southaven
"I'm equally disappointed. The 3D visuals and computer animation did not do Tintin justice. I could have also done without the attempts to make Tintin more of an everyman. Boo." -- Ruby Hester, 22, Arlington
"I'd read a couple of Tintin comics back in the day, but that was my only exposure to the character. Now that I've seen more of him, I'm quite impressed. He's got a lot of potential as a hero. He doesn't have a flaming sword or ninja powers -- he's just a kid that won't back down." -- Tabatha Harris, 30, Memphis
"There was a good chunk of the film that just felt forced. The chase scenes or moments of general panic were just too frequent." -- Sammy Rogers, 19, Memphis
"Ugly. Just … ugly. [These] human characters all look entirely too realistic. Is this the future of animated films? If so, I'm cashing out. No thank you, uncanny valley." -- Mason Wells, 23, Memphis
"Tintin's voice actor was a little too into it. He didn't do a good job emulating Tintin. The guy from the animated series did a much better job. I enjoyed the movie overall, I just found the voice-overs disappointing." -- Angela Palm, 18, Raleigh
"This is yet another unfortunate trip into the uncanny valley. I couldn't keep my eyes on Tintin or any other human character for long without feeling awkward. You just pick up on the sense of something just being … not right. From a technical perspective, it's impressive. I just hope this isn't going to be a reoccurring theme." -- Maxwell Reeves, 19, Bartlett
