Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Missing Link was a rare failure for Laika Animation. Which is a shame because it’s a damn funny, entertaining and charming film which also set a new bar in stop motion animation. Branching out from their usual goth focused pallet, Missing Link is a more colourful and more accessible film delivering an excellent voice cast (including Hugh Jackman & Zoe Saldana) and a wonderfully simple but effective edemption and discovery themed story. This is Laika at its most confident. Sadly poor marketing hampered the film but make no mistake here this is a must watch.
