The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

Plot hole: In Bagghar, Allan knocks out Haddock by hitting him on the head from behind. Later, Haddock tells Tintin it was Allan who knocked him out - how would he have seen him?

Factual error: Tintin says they only have one bullet left. That bullet is in the magazine,and since it is a semi automatic, there should also be one in the chamber, meaning they would have two bullets. Even if they only had that paticular bullet, he doesn't cock the gun, meaning the chamber would be empty and therefore wouldn't fire.

Continuity mistake: When Barnaby is shot, the newspaper keeps moving away/towards him between shots.

Trivia: The portrait that Tintin sits for at the start of the movie is a perfect rendition of how Hergé drew him in the books. Also if you note as Tintin gets up to leave, many of the characters from all of the books Hergé wrote are in a big collage in the background.

Trivia: Steven Spielberg was originally going to make this movie a live action movie with Snowy computer generated.

Tintin: We failed.
Captain Haddock: Failed. There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. A hopeless souse. Don't you ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal, that is what people pick up. Don't you understand? You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it. There's something you need to know about failure, Tintin. You can never let it defeat you.

Tintin: What have you done?
Captain Haddock: I lit a wee fire...
Tintin: IN A BOAT?

Captain Haddock: So you thought you'd sneak in an' catch me with me trousers down, eh?
Tintin: Would rather you kept your trousers on if it's all the same to you!

Question: At the apartment, Tintin can't find his magnifying glass and Snowy finds it for him. He says "Thank you" like he's annoyed at him. If he is annoyed at him, why is this?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: He must have thought that Snowy had found the magnifying glass and was playing with it. Like most dogs would do with a toy.
