  1. Ghostman's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    a very well aestheticized stop motion animation with a narrative that preaches tolerance and a rebellion against white supremacy but unfortunately reinforces these things due to its depiction of the boxtrolls, which are reminiscent of racial propaganda and stereotypes, akin to nazi germany's depiction of jews and america's depiction of blacks and mexicans

  2. Ilona Buffet's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

  3. Auranee's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    It's delightfully original and looks wonderful but doesn't come together into something memorable for me -- maybe it's the uneven pacing or my inability to connect with the characters. But I can't wait to see what this studio does next.

  4. ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    Providing self-aware comedy throughout, The Boxtrolls excels as a witty and mature comedy, with the obvious appeal to children. The characters are smartly written, playing up on filmic archetypes. Laika continues to move forward, impressing with every frame.

  8. RumbleFish's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    La cosa più divertente è che i cattivi sono ossessionati del formaggio, dagli effetti simili al veleno. Per il resto fastidio per le parlate rimasticate e urlate e farfugliate ma comunque sempre incapibili

  9. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    What a whimsical & well-crafted animated film to enjoy - it has that feel likeness of Dahl being told by Selick. (Plus cheese is good for you. And Jelly!)

  10. Rafael Zen's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    Character design and stop motion techniques are amazing - YES - but what about the necessity to introduce action frenesi in every single animation for kids nowadays? The climax is so expected it's not a climax anymore. I just can't stand these big finales cinema is shoving down our throats. It's a shame: if it had stayed in this crazy world they build, it could be huge.

  11. Joyce's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    the way they created the characters is just crazy. some of the really detailed frames make me want to cry. and Richard Ayoade talking on the first half of post credits!!! the story is simple but they created such a beautiful world here. it's such a shame that some people can't appreciate a good stop motion film like this.

  12. Andreea Serpe's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

  15. Rachel Tyler's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    Really wanted to like this movie. The animation was obviously amazing, but as with most animated movie for me, I only liked the first half. The end credits and post credit scene almost saved it, but not quite

  16. Alex Pintică's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    Really lovely stop-motion. Amazing post-credits scene, too :D

  17. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

  18. JM M----'s rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    Nice animation. Decent story.

  19. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    Dark, well crafted stop motion film (3.3/5)

  20. Pablo Ramos's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    It unabashedly panders to misfits during its entire duration, a flaw which is made so only due to the fact that ParaNorman has already proven to all of us that a movie about underdogs need not be an underdog itself.

  21. J. O.'s rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    In subterranean terms, there's not a whole lot going on (so stop weighing down the entertainment value with non-existent politics). But at surface-level, this is a beautiful, grotesque, and imaginative world. The human characters are wonderfully weird, disgusting, and cheese-obsessed, while the trolls are a well-balanced mixture of cute and horrid. Complete with fantastic performances (notably that of Sir Kingsley).

  22. Nathan Grey Hollis's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    What a weird and wonderful film.

  23. fardian's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    the most perfect stop motion i ever watched

  24. msmichel's rating of the film The Boxtrolls

    Grotesque, disgusting, nauseating ....this is children's entertainment? Latest animation from Laika is hard to fault for its Oscar nominated technique but on story and character traits it suffers a lot. The characters both troll and human are not appealing with no message outside the very trite 'you make you'. Glad I missed the headache a theatrical viewing would have made.
