Kubo and the Two Strings Review
Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic film done in stop motion animation style. It’s a feast for the eyes. It seriously is a visually amazing film. You will be entertained from start to finish. There’s adventure, monsters and a love of family that just seems to flow out of the film. This movie is geared towards the tweens and teens. So I would say that I would go with that recommendation for sure. If you’re wondering if you should take the family and go see it I say it’s a must see! It’s worth it and you get to listen to Matthew Mcconauhey voice the beetle. Ahh you can pretend his whispers are for you. LOL Seriously though it’s an amazing piece of art. This movie and the way they animate it by using stop motion makes it so visually appealing to everyone. Wondering what the story of Kubo and the Two Strings is about? Check out the movie info below!
Kubo and the Two Strings is an epic action-adventure set in a fantastical Japan from acclaimed animation studio LAIKA. Clever, kindhearted Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson of “Game of Thrones”) ekes out a humble living, telling stories to the people of his seaside town including Hosato (George Takei), Hashi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), and Kameyo (Academy Award nominee Brenda Vaccaro). But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta. Now on the run, Kubo joins forces with Monkey (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), and sets out on a thrilling quest to save his family and solve the mystery of his fallen father, the greatest samurai warrior the world has ever known. With the help of his shamisen – a magical musical instrument – Kubo must battle gods and monsters, including the vengeful Moon King (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) and the evil twin Sisters (Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara), to unlock the secret of his legacy, reunite his family, and fulfill his heroic destiny.
