From the acclaimed animation studio LAIKA (Coraline) comes an epic original action adventure featuring the voice talents of Academy Award winners Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey all in the wonder of 3-D! Kubo mesmerizes the people in his village with his magical gift for spinning wild tales with origami. When he accidentally summons an evil spirit seeking vengeance, Kubo is forced to go on a quest to solve the mystery of his fallen samurai father and his mystical weaponry, as well as discover his own magical powers. Kubo and the Two Strings is "a wildly imaginative, magical adventure." – Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood

At the beginning of the film Kubo was consumed with questions of why, as in why was he stuck with such personal sadness; by the end, he found the strength and courage to transition himself to questions of how, as in how to move on from his loss (e.g., his surprising actions and those of the villagers at the end of the film simply reflected how many Asian cultures try to deal positively with personal loss). That really struck a chord with our family, especially with our kids who greatly admired Kubo for his kindness, strength, and dedication to appreciating all that human life has to offer, even if that includes a life of emotional hardship.
With that said I would advise parents to screen the film first before showing it to their kids, in case their kids are not yet mentally and/or emotionally ready to handle such topics. Otherwise, it’s a beautiful film that will surely resonate with its viewers for many years to come.
This movie was sadly overlooked in theaters. Which is a shame. It is true artistry. I would call it a must see for fans of animation. It's something you have not seen anything like it before. And wonderfully so.
While it is on the darker side, and has some scary moments, I wouldn't say it's any darker or scarier than Coraline or ParaNorman. My oldest (7) loved both of those, and loved this one as well. The art of the story telling, paired with the knowledge that it was stop-motion, makes for a jaw dropping film. I, as an adult, could also appreciate the symbolism carried through-out. I highly recommend this one!
This movie doesn't have any of the adult TV show/movie or new references that animation movie makers seem to have to put into an animated movie to get adults to watch with their kids and it doesn't need them!
This movie may look like a completely CGI animated movie, but it is NOT!
The majority of this movie is done "Old School" with different types of clay and mechanical puppets in a more modern style of Ray Harryhausen OR Nick Park/Aardman (Wallace & Grommit) stop motion animation!
This movie amazes on sooo many levels!
The modern and old style Asian soundtrack is another really imprressive part of this movie that really helps to propel this feature to another level of interest as another element and plot supporting device!
The attention to the tiniest of details and a very well thought out plot is what helps keep your interest in this movie, as highly fictional and fantastical as this animated feature is.
I never saw this movie in the theaters (I really wished I had), but watching this movie with my wife on our 50 inch screen TV gave us a real great sense of what this movie was like in the theaters.
Our interest in this movie was piqued when we seen excerpts of this movie in commercials for "Save our Forrests" !
This movie is an impressive feat that you should either rent to watch or own!
If you are a big fan of animated feature films, this is a must have to own feature worthy of being added to your animated movie collection!
This IS an excellent and wonderful movie to watch and experience!
