I curse you... I curse your name.. and all who come after! We will meet again, Haddock.... IN ANOTHER TIME, IN ANOTHER LIFE!!!
~ Red Rackham's last words in the movie.

Red Rackham is a posthumous antagonist of the 2011 movie The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. He was a pirate known as the archnemesis of Sir Francis Haddock, the grandfather of Captain Archibald Haddock. He also happens to be the ancestor of the Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine (the main antagonist of the film).

He was portrayed by Daniel Craig.


Rackham had engaged Sir Francis Haddock in battle, resulting in almost total destruction of Rackham's ship. As his ship was sinking, Rackham and his men boarded The Unicorn and managed to gain control of the vessel after killing the remaining crew of The Unicorn.

Haddock was captured and tied to the ship's mast and the crew were cast overboard and eaten by sharks. Rackham intended to have Haddock tortured by his men the following day, but before he could, Sir Francis freed himself and plotted to sink the ship with the pirates still aboard. During this, Rackham discovered he had escaped leading to the two engaging in single combat using cutlasses. Rackham was defeated and Sir Francis managed to blow up the Unicorn and get away safely with several of the treasure in hand.

Rackham then perished with his pirates as the Unicron sinks to the bottom of the ocean, but not before cursing the Haddock family name and vowing to Francis that they will meet again in another time and life. Needless to say, Red Rackham's vow came true when Sakharine vows to steal Sir Francis' treasure and kill Captain Haddock.

To that end, Sakharine turned Haddock's crew against their captain, but they end up being defeated and arrested.



  • In the video game version of the movie, Red Rackham appeared as the final boss of the bonus level as a giant.
