Review: Kubo and the Two Strings
Charming but lengthy.Easily as good as the reviews have suggested and well worth the ticket price. The combination of claymation and origami felt very special. I did find it overly long and some of the American actors seemed out of context. George Clooney seemed to have modelled his character on Buzz Lightyear. I was a bit confused about the 2 string aspect as the musical instrument Kubo played clearly had 3 strings. Perhaps I missed something?
Overall a charming little film with magical moments. A strong message about valuing ancestors will probably be lost on younger viewers though.
