Three of the Franco-Belgian comic-book yarns by Hergé are smoothly poured into a pretty, motion-capture animation by Steven Spielberg. Short on real cartooning, long on quaintness, short on story, long on hectic action, it is for unimaginative boys 7 to 12. For the rest of us, it is a kind of projectile doldrum. Emotions are never captured. There is a fine plane crash and a dog in yappy debt to the Thin Man’s famous Asta of the 1930s. (2011) — David Elliott
