Genuinely an amazing movie which surpassed my expectations, and it turned out to be a little more serious then I expected. The animation was nothing short of spectacular and the voices behind the characters came through the characters. The whole production was world class, and to say the movie was heart warming and fun is the least I could say. It turned out to be different then what I thought I was going to watch, but it was even better.

I saw it opening day to show my support. It's got a heart-felt story, and the stop-animation techniques are outstanding! I'm glad people are starting to recognize the art form. I'm definitely picking up the Blu-ray once it's out as this one is my favorite from **LAIKA**. I <3 it with all my heart! Interesting tidbit: I recently learned that some of the people that worked on Gumby also worked on Kubo.

Kubo, son of a fallen samurai and a witch, sets on an adventure to defeat the evil spirits that are after him. _Kubo and the Two Strings_ combines action with fantasy as well as stresses the importance and meaning of the family, making it a great movie to watch with your kids.

Every once in a while there is family-friendly entertainment that lives up to its wonderment in imaginative storytelling and stunning visual scope.

**A boy, a monkey and a giant beetle team up for a quest.**

This is not an old fashioned stop-motion animation. This is a very modern, a hybrid of multiple techniques that includes 3D printing and digital special effects. The directional debut for the producer of 'ParaNorman' and 'The Boxtrolls'. More

Great, creative story.

'Kubo and the Two Strings' is a fun film, I enjoyed it all. I love the animation style that Laika use, they also tend to get the vibe of their stories pretty bang on. This is my favourite work of the studio's so far, at least before I watch 'Missing Link'. More
