Critic Reviews for Kubo and the Two Strings
More often than not it's a charming, Eastern-influenced myth that's beautiful to watch and enjoyable to follow.
Kubo offers visceral thrills and visual splendor, but it also champions the importance of kindness, forgiveness, and embracing humanity's many imperfections.
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.
The overall stunning nature of the work cannot be ignored.
Audience Reviews for Kubo and the Two Strings
Forged by envisioning animations, magical charm and a compelling story, Kubo and the Two Strings is a surprisingly majestic film that holds up against any other animated tale and their conventional ways of filmmaking and storytelling. 4.5/5
Travis Knight assembles Kubo and the Two Strings. A 90 minute animated adventure paces itself slow and steady, perhaps a little too slow at times, but manages an interesting plot to keep the characters moving. A few twist and turns show around the bend and Kubo and the Two Strings has entertainment value for all ages. The visual splendor of the characters and settings are the film's highest accolade, making it easy for continuous watching, even through the slowest of times. Art Parkinson, Charlize Theron, and Matthew McConaughey voice the bulk of the journey and Rooney Mara is a pleasant surprise to fill in the gaps. Kubo and the Two Strings leaves an all around pleasant taste on the screen. Find the armor and unleash the magic.
With annoying characters, a stupid protagonist and a messy plot that is more confusing than enlightening like it wants to be, this stunning stop-motion animation is predictable, unfunny and full of cheesy clichés that will please those who don't mind a story without much imagination.
