Missing Link

Golden Globe-winning animated adventure from Laika Studios (ParaNorman, Coraline). Tired of solitude in the Pacific Northwest, the 8-foot-tall, 630lb fur-covered creature known as Mr. Link (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) strikes a deal with explorer Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) - if Lionel can use Link to prove to the world he exists, in return he will help the Link find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Also features Zoe Saldana as Adelina Fortnight, an adventurer who has the map to Shangri-La.

A globe-trotting Victorian-era adventure that, while often a magnificent sight to behold, never goes the distance in terms of engaging characters and involving plotting.

A charming family-friendly story about adventure and friendship - told with bar-raising artistic craft and technical skill. We'd expect nothing less from Laika.

Butler's occasionally inspired action-comedy fails to deliver on its initial promise, but enough of the jokes hit their mark to provide an amiable afternoon's entertainment for school holiday audiences and their chaperones.
