Kubo And The Two Strings Review - Metro

Metro: Who in 2016 makes a somber stop-motion animated movie set in Ancient Japan where one of the heroes is a Samurai beetle? “Kubo and the Two Strings” is the latest from Laika, the little animation house that could, and has. They’re not Pixar, nor Dreamworks, nor whatever the soulless one at Fox is called. But working just slightly under the radar, they’ve distinguished themselves as the strangest toon mavens in the mainstream, cranking out oddities from Neil Gaiman books (“Coraline”) and about ghosts (“ParaNorman”) and trolls that wear boxes as clothes (“The Boxtrolls”).

The story is too old to be commented.
