Missing Link


Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) is on a journey to help Mr. Link ( Zach Galifianakis) find his long lost relatives in Shangri-La. Along the way they meet many different people and face many different obstacles. In the end they realize that you find family in the most unexpected ways.

“Coraline”and “Missing Link” are both claymation movies that were made by Laika, but “Missing Link” has more of a happy storyline rather than dark like “Coraline”.

According to theyoungfolks.com “Missing Link is the film that seems to be intended more specifically for the ten and under crowd. It seems primarily geared towards the younger audiences who might’ve been scared off by the darker, creepier movies produced by Laika prior to this film.”

The best part of the movie was the meaning behind the movie, it has a very heartwarming meaning. This is definitely a family friendly movie. According to the dailyworld.com “….But it’s a great popcorn movie for families, and it does take the necessary pause to examine Mr. Link’s loneliness, which does capture the viewers’ adoration and sympathy for the goofy and lovable creature.”

The best part of the movie for me was just the little things, like the humor, and the meaning behind the movie. The little tiny jokes they had throughout the whole movie, were funny and made me laugh.

This is a type of movie you would watch when you’re sad, or upset. It’s the type of movie to cheer you up and make you laugh. The claymation is weird, but hey if that’s what you like work with it.

This is a movie targeted towards younger kids, but hey if you’re older and want to see it I say go for it. This would get four out of five paws.
