I didn't expect this to be this quiet and slow. It is a quality animation and powerful visually, however, it didn't generate emotion and I felt really detached from the film, I don't know, maybe it's the culture or is it just not my preference. I'm an Asian myself, I thought I would like it more. But still a good one.

I adore Travis Knight’s work in Kubo and the Two Strings, as it was clearly a painstaking labor of love that included handmade costumes and even visual effects. It's nomination for Best Animated Feature seems assured even if the win is out of the picture.

Wanted to like this a lot more, but was left disappointed. Not bad by any means, just wasn't for me. The animation is fantastic through.

Despite being the lowest-grossing among the Laika releases, Kubo and the Two Strings is easily the most impressive stop-motion animated film to date. Granted, I think the story is little dark for the younger crowd, but story-wise, character-wise and animation-wise it is among the top tier as far as I'm concerned. Plus, the cast is spot-on and bring true life to their characters. This is a true animated treasure that shouldn't be missed.

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS is that rare animated feature that's imaginative, thoughtful, dark, humorous, exciting, and emotional all at once. Superbly rendered with breathtaking visuals, the story is filled with thrills, wit, and charm thanks to a great voice cast. This took me back to the stopmotion children's movies of my youth such as the Nightmare Before Christmas or James and the Giant Peach. I'm glad to see that someone made something simlar for today's younger generation.

Easily the most enjoyable film I've seen this year. A wonderful blend of all elements in stop motion adventure that is both charming and fun. The main character, Kubo, brings us on an emotional journey as well as the adventure his path is set on. Well written, and voiced I highly recommend it, though it may be a little scary in some parts for the very young.
