A charming entertainment based on an unusual epic

An original and heterogeneous trio goes on an expedition in search of Shangri-La, during the Victorian era: 1) Sir Lionel Frost is a British adventurer who might be considered as the perfect mix of the professor Otto Lidenbrock from Journey to the Center of the Earth (Jules Vernes, 1864) and Indiana Jones (Steven Spielberg, 1981-2008), 2) Adelina Fortnight is a wonderful widow with character and 3) Mr. Link, a caveman as ingenuous as touching, a kind of missing link between us and our ancestors, is desperately looking for a soul mate. The drawings are remarkably successful and the story is riddled with madcap plot twists. Given the kinship with the exquisite Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) and the excellent Coraline (2009), I probably hoped for better. Nevertheless, this zany story of adventurers addressing such important topics as friendship, trust or recognition, is overall a success that I really appreciated. I was obviously not the only one to laugh, in the movie theater.

Wow, This Was So Funny, So Clever, So Memorable, I Loved It!

Missing Link What can I say, I was blown away by this movie, it had a touch of several different previously successful cartoons, I sensed a bit of Frozen, Tin Tin and even Ice Age, but overall this struck new ground in its strength of character development built upon micro-gestures and vocal exaggeration. This technique was present in Spider-verse, but this was on a whole new level here, the characters were all so carefully written, by the end we knew them all, how they would act and behave, they had all become our friends and we loved them. When the movie finally had to end you had a sense of grief, you wanted more, what was going to happen next, wow, this was an amazing feeling that such a story could evoke such a response in the audience, after-all we weren't marching on Rome or anticipating cannibalism lol Frankly, I didn't expect much, but how wrong could I be, this movie had more than a touch of magic and I defy anyone not to enjoy it. I would add that it could be understood on so many levels so it was suitable for the whole family and geeks like me. I really cannot find any fault in this movie at all, it was so dense in detail you could watch it again and again, all the voice artists were brilliant, Hugh Jackman pulled out all the stops as Lionel Frost, after the disaster of Vice last year, Mr Link, played by Zach Galifianakis got the tone perfectly right, but Lord Piggot-Dunceb, played by Stephen Fry, was a tour-de-force. This must definitely be considered as a contender for an Oscar next year, and I would give one to Stephen Fry for his brilliant performance, he did the Harry Potter audiobooks and now this, unbelievable, he must be one of the best voiceover artists since Mel Blanc.

Laika have done it again! :)

This is the fifth film from the film studio Laika. Their previous films include Coraline (2009), ParaNorman (2012), The Boxtrolls (2014) and Kubo and the Two Strings (2016). Laika are an animation studio who use stop-motion animation such as how Aardman Animations use it in the same style for Wallace & Gromit. There are some very famous voices in this new film. Hugh Jackman provides the voice for Sir Lionel Frost. Zoe Saldana provides the voice for a character called Adelina Fortnight, a free-spirited woman who is well able to look after herself. Then it is Zach Galifianakis who plays the innocent Sasquatch, Mr. Link, who wants to travel across the world with Sir Lionel Frost to find any other creatures similar to himself. There are also plenty of other famous voices to be heard, such as Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson, Amrita Acharia, Timothy Olyphant, Matt Lucas and David Walliams. Missing Link is a wonderfully beautiful film. It reminds me of a really exciting adventure film which feels like a mix of Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and elements from a Western. Even though those influences are there, the film manages to do its own thing. It's written so well and the dialogue between the characters is hilarious. The film also looks amazing. Laika have a certain skill and technique which is ever so creative for this form of art. The film is so good that you forget that you're listening to Hugh Jackman or any of the other actors. You're under a spell watching the film and the entire spectacle of it all sweeps you away. One of the best and most original films I have ever seen. It doesn't matter what age you are, anybody will enjoy this wonderful film!
