Synopsis [E]very frame of the film is a marvel of creativity and craftsmanship, and the filmmakers stuff the margins of their plot with lots of offbeat humor... -- Grade: B+[V]oicing the putrid villain Archibald Snatcher, Ben Kingsley gives the funniest performance of his career...In THE BOXTROLLS, old-fashioned stop-motion animation is combined with new-style 3-D cinematography to charming effect.Yet as winsome as these critters are, it is the movie’s virtuosic animation itself that steals the show, dazzling our eyes with its technical artistry...3 stars out of 5 -- As meticulously realised as CORALINE and PARANORMAN before it...3 stars out of 4 -- THE BOXTROLLS has a rich, edgy texture that makes it stand out from other animated films.Subterranean trolls raise an orphaned boy, who helps them fight back against an evil exterminator and make peace with the fearful residents of an upper-crust Victorian-era town known for its world-class cheeses. The two things the people of this posh town treasure most are their children and their cheeses; unfortunately, those are also the things that the Boxtrools - a race of unsightly, sewer-dwelling creatures - covet most. Clad in cast-off cardboard boxes as they scuttle about underground, the Boxtrolls may look like a fearsome bunch, they're actually quite friendly. Having previously adopted an orphaned infant named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), the diminutive tinkerers raise him as one of their own. Meanwhile, Eggs may be the Boxtrolls' only hope for survival when scheming exterminator Archibald Snatcher (voiced by Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley) seeks to earn his entry into the ultra-exclusive Cheesebridge society by eradicating the misunderstood creatures once and for all. Little does the villainous Snatcher realize that Eggs has a wealthy friend named Winnie (voiced by Ellie Fanning), and that Winnie may be the key to solving the longstanding feud between the people above, and the benevolent creatures below.
