    Graphically it was phenomenal! Story could be better, but still a really cool flick. I would like to see a sequel.

    Optimal story of adventure that recalls the old and great stories of TinTin, optimal choice to do in animation, excellent visual effects, the positive aspect of the film is due to the accelerated excelent scenes adventures and creative sense of humor and great to the scenes, downside is for the development of the story that ******* and uncreative.
