Missing Link

Animated adventure comedy from Laika Studios (ParaNorman, Coraline). Tired of solitude in the Pacific Northwest, the 8-foot-tall, 630lb fur-covered creature known as Mr. Link (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) strikes a deal with explorer Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) - if Lionel can use Link to prove to the world he exists, in return he will help the Link find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Also features Zoe Saldana as Adelina Fortnight, an adventurer who has the map to Shangri-La.

Whether rendered with smooth computer-generated graphics, hand-drawn with the pencil strokes to prove it or sculpted out of clay, family-friendly animated films often spin variations on the same themes. Believe in yourself, they advise. Don’t compromise your identity to belong, they continue. Once you’re comfortable in your own skin, you’ll find somewhere to fit in, they typically summarise.

Gorgeous animation with charming humour, held back by an uninspired plot

Missing Link is another flick by Laika Studios, the studio known for its original stop-motion animations, such as Coraline, ParaNorman, and Kubo and the Two Strings. At this point, you have to think that Laika Studios are the new Pixar; remember when Pixar made a huge stand about not making sequels and focusing on great original stories? That was at least...

As proof that humans can evolve... "Missing Link" makes a most excellent case. And that doesn't even count the cutting-edge technology required to pull of such a hyper-detailed and visually dazzling feat as this.

It's a witty global adventure full of bravura set pieces and sharp, stylised characters.

It's a feast of a movie with dazzling visuals and terrifically acted by the voice cast.

A wicked combination of pratfalls, sight gags and verbal humour.

A globe-trotting Victorian-era adventure that, while often a magnificent sight to behold, never goes the distance in terms of engaging characters and involving plotting.

A charming family-friendly story about adventure and friendship - told with bar-raising artistic craft and technical skill. We'd expect nothing less from Laika.

Butler's occasionally inspired action-comedy fails to deliver on its initial promise, but enough of the jokes hit their mark to provide an amiable afternoon's entertainment for school holiday audiences and their chaperones.
