      Gabriel Bene. An exciting story, a well-made and detailed stop motion with an incredible soundtrack, congratulations to Laika studio! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review DÆ°Æ¡ng P this is a great movie which reminded me about life. The music is unique Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review James P Such a great family, all-around movie, checks all the boxes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Alec B The script could have used a few more re-writes, but the animation is gorgeous and it's hard not to appreciate a kids' movie that isn't filled with noise. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review Arjun B Yet again, Laika has prospered in delivering a quality film with an adventurous story, journeying alongside the superiority of stop motion and it's breath taking effects. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/04/23 Full Review Wayne D Just watched Kubo again in 2023. I remember enjoying it first time round but this time I watched with my eldest child, who is 6 years old. It was a wonderful experience, the animation and storytelling is a delight. Something a miss in modern day animation unfortunately! Media is awash with the ramshackle ham fisted attempts at politicising children's content and losing billions because of it. They could learn an awful lot from this one. A true animated family classic in my opinion. You must watch with yours! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tara Brady Irish Times Sweeping tableaux, a wonderful voice cast and adventure that feels genuinely folkloric make this a film that definitely deserves to be taken out of cellophane. Rated: 4/5 Dec 27, 2016 Full Review Kate Muir Times (UK) A glorious flight of the imagination. Rated: 4/5 Oct 10, 2016 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) It explores unexpectedly profound ideas of rebirth and destiny rewritten, like origami paper sheets refolded into another form. Rated: 5/5 Sep 11, 2016 Full Review Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews Laika Studio's Masterpiece Aug 7, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review An adventure marked by dark, occasionally heavy themes, and resounding tenderness. Rated: 3/4 Apr 11, 2022 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson Kubo and the Two Strings leaps off the screen with an original foreign folk tale that employs a rich originality and builds a strong base of emotional connection. Rated: 4/5 Feb 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
