Peter Jackson's new film The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is getting mixed reviews ahead of its premiere in Belgium this weekend.

Belgium is Tintin's homeland. The movie is a collaboration with director Steven Spielberg.

International film reviewers were given a sneak peak this week and many criticised the 3D technology.

Xan Brooks of The Guardian says the technology means the characters have zombie-like qualities and hopes the 3D technology improves before the sequel.
