Tin Tin Is Not So Great Great.

Last night we took Arianna to see Tintin. She's been bugging us to see the movie so we finally gave in and took her to the movies. Neither my husband or I were very familiar with the story line and I only semi-recognized the cartoon, so we were pretty much were going into this blind. But after watching the movie, I can say that I didn't think it was so great.

The graphics were amazing, and even the storyline was engaging (even though pretty long for a children's movie) but I was more upset at the drinking, violence and gun use. I mean, this is a kids movie right? I thought it was a little inappropriate and unnecessary. I mean at one point a character gets violently gun downed in a doorway and spells out his dying words in his own blood.

Really?? Is that necessary?

Maybe this movie would be more appropriate for tweens and not so much for kindergartners, like my daughter. I will say that she liked it, but I was definitely uncomfortable with her watching some of it.

Have you watched Tin Tin? What did you think?


  1. We saw the movie also and I thought the same thing when he spelled out a word in blood. Do these movie producers think that the only way we adults will go is if you put violence and death in? Wrong, we will go to the Rated G movies if there were more of them. My daughter is 7 and didn't bring up any of the violence so I guess most of that goes over there head, for now!


  2. Yeah my daughter didn't bring up the violence either, but it's up to us the parents to shield that from them. It's not a bad movie, I would have just liked it more PG like it was rated.

  3. I didn't really care for the movie at all and neither did my 4 girls. They are a bit older 12, 11, 9 and 7 and didn't really want to see it, but thier grandma had to see it and take the kids! LOL. I think she realized that if she is going to spend that kind of money the kids should want to see the movie!
    I did think the work in blood was a bit much!

  4. I hear ya. Movie prices are insane now! Especially when you factor in the snacks and popcorn.


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I always make time to read each and every one. ♥
