Synopsis [T]he animation of KUBO is truly dazzling, mixing sophistication and handmade charm with inspired flow. The movie glides from one gorgeous sequence to the next... -- Grade: B+In KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS, a 3-D wonderment steeped in ancient Japanese folklore and brought to life by the stop-motion innovators at Laika Entertainment, magic is both an eye-popping phenomenon and an everyday reality.3.5 stars out of 4 -- One of the most impressive elements of KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS -- besides its dazzling stop-motion animation, its powerful performances and its transporting score -- is the amount of credit it gives its audience, particularly its younger viewers.[A] marvel -- a visually stunning, richly imagined oasis in a sea of candy-colored safety, and one of the first truly original movies of the year so far. -- Grade: A-4 stars out of 4 -- [Y]ou find yourself staring at the onscreen sound and fury in awe. The work here is fluid and near-flawless -- which is as an apt description for the entire film as any.The action is gorgeously fluid, the idiosyncratic 3-D visual conceits are startling, and the story and its metaphors resolve in unexpected and moving ways.[A]n eye-popping delight that deftly blends colorful folklore with gorgeous, origami-informed visuals to immersive effect.KUBO would be worth seeing solely for the beautiful stop-motion animation, but it’s also hard not to be won over by the movie’s heartfelt messages about compassion and defining one’s own path.After accidentally summoning an ancient spirit, a young Japanese boy named Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson) is separated from his mother and embarks on a journey to discover the truth about his missing father. Along the way, he befriends the kindhearted Monkey (Charlize Theron) and the clumsy Beetle (Matthew McConaughey) as he fends off the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) and two evil twin sisters (Rooney Mara) with his shamisen, a magical stringed instrument. This stop-motion-animated adventure from Laika was directed by Travis Knight.
