Movie Review: ***Box Trolls (2014)
Boxtrolls. I think the characters in this film are a little too intense for young children. The Boxtrolls, even though they are kind, are scary in their way. However even more intense and scary are those that hunt the Boxtrolls. However, Tony is eight and he seemed to enjoy this movie. It is a bit dark, and sometimes, with the accents hard to understand. It appears to be clay animation. This type of animation leaves something to be desired in the fluidity of movements. However this is a good story, and is based on the novel "Here Be Monsters" by Alan Snow. Ben Kingsley voices the villain, in a double role as a Boxtroll catcher and as a female singer. Our young heroes are voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright and Elle Fanning.
