Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine, simply known as Sakharine, is the main antagonist of the motion-capture 2011 film The Adventures of Tintin.

He is portrayed by current James Bond, Daniel Craig, who also played his ancestor.


He is the descendant of Red Rackham, the pirate who attacked the Unicorn, the ship that was captained by Sir Francis Haddock.


Sakharine intends to get his revenge on Captain Archibald Haddock for the latter's ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock, killing the former's, Red Rackman.

Eventually, Thomson and Thompson promptly arrest Sakharine.


  • It must be noted that Sakharine is not a villain in the comic book The Secret of the Unicorn from which the film is adapted, in which he is merely a victim, whose exemplary of the Unicorn is stolen.
