Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Kubo and the Two Strings

Wish I connected with the story on an emotional, even general, level like I did the animation. Amazing setpieces and stop-motion work going on here, making it Laika's most visually dazzling film. There's no real issues, however, but I have no idea what kids and young children will make of this. It's a cute story, with glimmers of fun moments thanks to its characters, but it probably would've been a better short.
