I'm waiting for the sequel. The story is only half finished.

Yeah, the plan was Peter Jackson was supposed to have directed the second one, but then he got bogged down with the Hobbit trilogy.

No clue why they still haven't gotten to it yet. Even if it didn't do so well in the US (it was beaten in the box office by Alvin and the Chipmunks 3, for FSM's sake), it was a huge hit everywhere else.

As someone who has read the comics since I was little, I found the movie pretty good overall. There were a few weak moments here and there, like they were setting up something that didn't have a strong payoff, but it was fun and exciting and paid good homage to the comics. Definitely wish that they'd make that second movie already...

Being "a huge hit everywhere else" does not mean it recouped its massive costs sufficiently for the financiers to be enthusiastic about sinking in more money more another.

I love the Tintin comics. For me, no movie has yet been able to truly capture their spirit. And although it's a bit unfair, I've never heard a Captain Haddock voice that came close to matching the one I imagined as I read it.

No a Tintin movie, but as close as it gets :
