Consensus: Drawing deep from the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark playbook, Steven Spielberg has crafted another spirited, thrilling adventure in the form of Tintin.

It's delirious stuff, often laugh-out-loud funny.

The action grows wearisome as it grinds on, and the film becomes a succession of dazzling set pieces devoid of simple feelings.

With The Adventures of Tintin, Steven Spielberg remembers that even if you make a movie that isn't about that much, at least make it an exciting, awe-inspiring movie about not that much.
