Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Knight has put together a picture that hits a lot of all-ages-entertainment sweet spots while avoiding hackneyed conventions, and ends up delivering what feels like a sincere family-friendly message.
Fresh: Filmgoers who've suffered through a summer of superheroes, supervillains and sequels/snarky reboots, we now have something that genuinely casts a spell on viewers.
Fresh: With Kubo, Laika adds more texture to the dark beauty that's been the house style since Coraline, but it's more emotionally expansive, too.
Fresh: Despite a traditional-seeming quest for a suit of armor and a sword, the film's intrinsic message is all about the transformative powers of music and love. It's a movie the whole family can rock out to.
Kubo and the Two Strings
I was so impressed with this movie. Not only was it beautifully crafted but the story was original and wonderful. A Masterpiece IMO.
I honestly cannot wait to add this movie to my collection. This movie was beautiful, powerful, and everything that it promised.
Wonderful characters and storytelling, and it's generally just a gorgeous movie. I'm always in awe of the stop-motion animation style, since it's so work-intensive and requires a heavy hand with details, but they pulled it off so beautifully! There are some themes in this that may be a little upsetting for extra sensitive young ones (some of the little kids at my showing seemed a bit upset), but overall great film. Would definitely see this again!
