If you are a stop motion animation fan, you will absolutely appreciate the genius and attention to detail in every frame of this movie. However, if you were hoping for a movie that captures you from the very beginning, the Boxtrolls aren't exactly that proactive.
It's been a while since I have done a review and that is because the movies at the moment aren't exactly worth getting excited for. But Boxtrolls was the first one in a few weeks I was looking forward to. From the creators of ParaNorman and Coraline, this film promised to be refreshing and different in the best kind of weird way possible. And I do have to say it delivered on that, just not all the way through.
Watch my video review of The Boxtrolls, where I tell you all about the story, the adorably ugly trolls and what made this movie great at certain points and somewhat bland at others.
Let me know if you liked The Boxtrolls and if not, what is your favorite stop-motion animation movie?
