  1. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Loved the way the later narrative mirrors the story told by Kubo to the villagers at the start of the film. Through this, it becomes less of a conventional fantasy analogous to the hero's journey than a self-reflexive study on the need for stories to explore emotions, fears& concerns. The animation is astounding, but it’s the themes of overcoming grief & challenging violence through understanding that impresses most.

  2. Alice Cerconi's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    a beautiful story and very nice visuals.

  4. pluviosity's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Laika does make amazing stop-motion. But the story...it's disappointing. I don't understand why American animation makers still think kids can't handle just a tiny bit complexity in their story. The beautifully eerie and ambiguous idea of the Asian-like folklore turned into mere flawless hero tropes with sidekick banters.

  5. MyAmanda's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Such a dissappointing movie. The animation is stunning and so is every other visual aspect, but the story is extremly weak and predictable.

  7. pumpkindraconis's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Woah, this animation is so advanced, and it's stop motion? The story, the characters and the dialogues were sincere and heartwarming. Disney-like emotinal core but it's unique, i could tell that.

  12. ceknklsn's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    50/100 (Bu kadar çok fazla beğenilmesini anlamıyorum. Klişenin dibine vurulmuş. Aynı hikayeyi belki 100 kez izledik. Bunun ise farklı iki özelliği var kabul ediyorum. En önemlisi CGI'ye çok az yer verilip, maketlerle filmin çekilmesi. Çok emek harcanmış. İkincisi ise diğer animelere göre daha derin olması. Ama bunlar kurtarmıyor işte.)

  13. Adham T. Fusama's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    The visual is wonderful. The story isn't.

  14. Emrys's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    What makes this an absolute marvel is that it is hand-made stop-motion. Gorgeous, awe-inspiring craft and art direction.

  15. ooming's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    the animation is brilliant

  16. Jacob Marcoux's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

  17. NUGA's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    An adventure film lacking the adventure feel, Kubo serves as a stepping stone for further stop-motion pictures, in its technicality, whilst not really making it great on its own. Fun characters, some humorous scenes, and amazing visuals and actions scenes stand out, all the while being undermined by cookie-cutter plot, that uses to many clichés to grab your heart. But the process of making the film alone are worth it

  18. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Reminded me a lot of "The Dark Crystal" for a new agr with its high fantasy adventure and lush, intricate aesthetics. And i deeply appreciated that it pulled the trigger on some heavy situations that other children's films frequently fail to commit to. It out-Pixars a lot of recent Pixar movies.

  19. zotibaws's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    The animation was amazing, but did they run out of ideas for antagonists?

  20. teresa romã's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    This was really something. Incredible soundtrack, OUTSTANDING animation, captivating characters and loving narrative. Wow.

  21. Rafael Zen's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    It's a very rich animation when it comes to the visual aspects, but this is Laika's most underwhelming feature. Somehow it has it all - humor, drama, adventure, nice characters - but it seems a little bit recycled. My favorite thing about this one? Its tune - I just like how Kubo feels undertuned and quiet at a lot of times. Too bad animation studios have the tendency to explode everything when reaching climax.

  22. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Every once in a while, there is a weird pubescent flourish, as if the film was embarrassed by the maturity of the myth being told and had to take it down a notch. It's a shame, because outside of those moments, there is much to love: from the classical Eleusinian tale aping the Persephone myth, to the frank and beautiful depiction of loss. Kubo (and I) would argue death and loss are not the same thing at all.

  23. Auranee's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Laika's most ambitious film yet. Loved the origami sequences, sound design, everything. The story takes some emotional risks that are rare for a kids' movie lately. I think the ~Asian-inspired~ stuff lacked a little something... sincerity maybe. But I can let that go.

  24. Zineu Simionato's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

    Besides being a movie that portraits japanese culture with almost no japanese involved, I still loved everything about this. The use of spirituality and the way they deal with the death of loved ones made me burst into tears (maybe I'm in a sensitive moment of my life, but isn't it that makes it more magical?).I was waiting for another good animation since I saw Song of the Sea and it looks like I found one.
