Tintin was showing a lot of courage (:

I think it was a very good movie. The part where the man dies and there's blood was the only really scary part but it was good. I recomend it

Tintin Rules

My six year loved it - she's a massive fan of the books. But the scene where the man is shot she found disturbing - blood! - we have to skip it on rewatch.
