“If you like movie, you would know what am I telling about now. It was made by both movie and book.
Last week I read it by book and today I saw it by movie! It should had same content, but it had a little bit of difference with each other.
First, some of settings were different.
Second, actually the movie had more details than the book.
Third characters were looked like different.
The summary of “The Secret of Unicorn’ was the main character who was popular reporter called Tintin bought a model unicorn ship. It was very expensive.
But few minutes ago someone stole his unicorn ship. So he looked for the ship, but he failed.
And few hours ago the robber who stole Tintin’s unicorn ship, gonna kill Tintin because if Tintin call to the police, robber would get a trouble. So robber went to Moskova with Tintin and scary plans.
In the ship there were two bad guys who were subordinate by robber, hit Tintin. But frankly, Tintin had a dog called Snowy. His dog helped him to escape of bad guy’s room. He ran to someone’s room with his smarty tricks. The owner of room was captain who was really loving the alcohol was helped Tintin. They cleared their escaping plan.
But he had a trouble again. The robber stole his essential letter about ship! He must to find it. They got a battle with each other in Moskva. It was very hard to Tintin. But his friend Snowy and captain helped him. I loved this story.
