    I recently purchased a 4K #D television from Best Buy and I wanted to get a movie that my family could enjoy together in 3D! I haven't heard anything about this movie, but figured that it might be an enjoyable film. The story is interesting and fun, the 3D is excellent, and the movie will make a great addition to anyone's collection.

    This is probably the best stop motion release to date. Kubo tells an amazing story of family, heroics, and all through stop motion at its finest. I have no doubt that had a been younger (say age 4-12) that this disk would be watched over & over. I highly recommend this for anyone. I watch this film on a 180" home theater screen with projector.

    the movie start out very sad about the boy with his mother . The boy have to entertain to make ends meet. The story is interesting but I think it is something similar to monkey king story. I love the ending it is about forgiving. I like the song While my guitar gently weeps by George Harrison. Over all ,it is a must see movies for all ages

    From the studio that brought you Coraline... comes another masterpiece! I caught this after it was Oscar nominated, bought it instantly, and have watched twice in just a couple weeks. I've also recommended it to people who I thought would enjoy it. Beware, the "PG" rating is pretty spot-on and might be too scary for younger viewers.

    Seeing the advertisements for this movie made me curious as to its plot and storyline. What I didn't expect was this beautifully written and told story unfolding on the screen. The animation was breathtaking. The characters were strong and bold. I enjoyed this amazing journey of cinema. More should be brought to life like this one.

    This is a predictable tale utilizing the familiar characteristics of its heritage. The animation is well done and fluid. Although it starts out grim, it contains the usual happy ending. The humor is hit or miss depending on your personal preferences. This is not a "Disney" classic that you will want to watch over and over again.

    The movie was pretty good, but I'm not sure I would watch it a second time. My sons have not watched it again, so they must feel the same way. They tend to watch movies they like over and over again. The storyline is pretty good, but I'm not a big fan of these kinds of graphics in animated movies. Obviously, my sons aren't either.

    I purchased this knowing absolutely nothing about the film, other than that the cover art made it seem to be a film that my kids would enjoy. I never expected that I would likewise be blown away by the profound story, the solid voice acting, the superb animation, but most importantly, a strikingly effective musical score.

    Among the numerous titles that require an over abundance of computer generated awesomeness, this is a great combination of the stop motion art form and previously mentioned awesomeness. Really an overall good movie if a bit sappy at the end, but what do expect from a children aimed film. High on my list of recommendations.

    This is a great movie. The Story is done very well. The graphics are very unique, and if you like Tim Burton style you'll love this movie. In my opinion this takes it up a notch. Kids were very entertained. Movie looks amazing on Blu-ray and if you have a 4K TV, like our Samsung KS8000 65", you will not be disappointed!

    One of the best animated movies I have ever seen

    This is not your ordinary Claymation/animated movie. This movie makes you believe in the characters and feel as if you are really in the story. The attention to details in the sets, the sounds, the music, all work together perfectly to bring to life a great adventure. It truly takes you to another place and time.

    As I have not actually watched (or even unwrapped) the movie yet, I can only attest to the absolutely STUNNING quality of the box construction and imagery that is printed on it. It makes you feel like you're actually looking at a real life clay model, but you're not, as it's just ink printed on the box - CRAZY GOOD!!!

    I love this movie and the animation is great! Kubo and the 2 Strings is like no other animation - it uses a combination of stop motion and CGI and creates a unique world for Kubo and his friends. Even greater in 3D where the images just pop out of the screen. I have over 100 3D movies, and this is in my top 10 list.

    I love stop motion animation, and this is a fantastic example of the genre. The movie mixes stop motion with excellent visual effects to create an animated masterpiece. I watched the 3D version. Very nice depth, though not much in the way of pop outs. Highly recommended, though may be scary for very small children.

    Very underrated movie. Highly recommended, the visuals are top notch, the claymation is always a welcome break from typical CGI, the story is sweet, and the overall story is refreshing in an age where all movie studios do a typical copy paste without going outside the box and trying something original.

    This is a movie that I will enjoy watching again and again. I am really amazed... what a time consuming project stop motion is! But this was not just claymation type, but paper folding too. I was intrigued throughout the whole movie. I would watch an hour-long extra on how it's made. Buy this movie!

    The folks at Laika knock it out of the park again. An absolutely stunning movie for both children and adults dealing in grief and memories. Action packed and poignant, Kubo is a masterpiece. Just as a side note: some of the imagery may be scary for younger kids. My 7 year older is daughter loves it.

    This movie is a visual masterpiece. The storyline is great, though a bit dark for my 6 year old. Adults will appreciate this movie more than their young children will. It really is an epic film that should have been done in 2 parts. At the end it all feels rushed and the viewer is left wanting more.

    Kubo is an almost unbelievable example of stop motion photography at its finest, while its story feels distinctly Japanese. The only thing that kept me from giving it a five-star rating was that its ending seemed a little rushed and unsatisfying, but it's still a film I wholeheartedly recommend.
