Storyline Heading
Kubo lives a quiet, normal life in a small shoreside village until a spirit from the past turns his life upside down by re-igniting an age-old vendetta. This causes all sorts of havoc as gods and monsters chase Kubo who, in order to survive, must locate a magical suit of armor once worn by his late father, a legendary Samurai warrior.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Adventure Fantasy - While certainly an action adventure for the whole family, this period-set, stop motion animated film also deals some dark themes such as death that may be of some concern to some parents of young kids; some scary images and intense action scenes may also be of concern. But most parents will find this to be safe viewing, and fans of voice actors Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey should enjoy.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ... this is as good as or better than any animated film to reach screens this year. Kubo and the Two Strings is a magical motion picture in every sense of the word.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good The fact that these two extremely different but equally inspired images can co-exist within the same film—a film that's as poignant for adults as it is entertaining for children—is nothing short of magical.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good It is definitely the summer for talking animals taking over the cinema, but Kubo manages to rise above the rest of its peers with a wondrous coming-of-age tale full of ancient soul.

NY Post Full Review
Good Knight's sophisticated stop-motion style puts "Kubo and the Two Strings” head and shoulders above most kids' fare, save Pixar; this is one movie that earns its 3-D surcharge.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 39 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: They all loved "Kubo and the Two Strings."
TEENS: Five of the seven males loved it, but the remaining two only rated it "average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: All the males and females LOVED "Kubo and the Two Strings."
ADULTS: This is a bit of an odd story and it shows in these reviews. About 45% of the males loved it, but the rest only rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). The ladies enjoyed it more with just over half indicating they loved it with a few more enjoying it very much. Like with the males, there were quite a few who felt it was only an "average" movie with a few even rating it "below average."
