Synopsis


Kubo and the Two Strings
After accidentally summoning an ancient spirit, a young Japanese boy named Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson) is separated from his mother and embarks on a journey to discover the truth about his missing father. Along the way, he befriends the kindhearted Monkey (Charlize Theron) and the clumsy Beetle (Matthew McConaughey) as he fends off the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) and two evil twin sisters (Rooney Mara) with his shamisen, a magical stringed instrument. This stop-motion-animated adventure from Laika was directed by Travis Knight. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

    The stop-motion animation, production values, Oscar-Nominated costumes and the excellent BD 3-D effects for Kubo should have won Best Animated Film instead of the trite Zootipia~~ sho buz 5 STARS

    I would recommend this movie to those that are inclined to liking fantasy tales. Many surprises as the story unfolds. It is not a particularly light hearted story for kids however. The video is 1st class with detailed imaging along with a satisfying sound presentation. The added depth of the 3D version does enhance the viewing experience.

    The unique tale of Kubo is as riveting as the animation that brings the story to life on the big screen. My 10 year old loved it, but it might be a bit too mature for kids under 8.

    Maybe not quite for children though and not up to Miyazaki's standards, but overall a really enjoyable movie. The 3D version is definitely worth the purchase. Just curious why no 4K version was offered.

    I love this movie - it's awesomely written, great voice actors, and visuals are on point. It's a little dark, though...so if you have little (or big) humans around that are easily frightened, you might want to preview it yourself to make sure they'll be ok.
