I wouldn't call it award-winning, but it's a good Wonder Years-like tale about dignity and tolerance.

While Ed Harris does well as Mr. Simon, it's Alexander Walters, Daniel Yelsky and Chase Ellison as the main protagonists in the movie that carry it.

I think it's a bit plodding at points and the narration from Ellison's adult counterpart makes me think I'm watching ABC but overall it's a good film - one you wouldn't expect from "WWE Studios."

I understand where - or at least the perception why - they'd go for a movie that a neon TOLERANCE/ANTI-BULLYING~! sign... but I'm curious if Vince wants to expand from this where he goes next. I have a sinking feeling it will be closer to The Marine instead of this.

Finally - Orton needs to be a heel again; that's all I'll say from watching this movie.

How dare you. If you don't rescind this clearly biased comment, I'll go to the papers if I have to.

Me too. Tintin, as cool as the original stories are, has always failed whenever someone has tried to update, adapt, or modernize him. And "boy adventurer and his dog" is not a genre that seems like it would resonate with modern audiences.
