This is a wholly original story, with an oriental setting.
The main character is Kubo. A boy who starts the film washed up on a shore with his mother. They come to live on the edge of a village. Where he grows up entertaining the locals with his storytelling, music, and amazing origami skills.
But his mother can only tell him so much about his past. And he would love to know who his father was.
When the village is attacked, it's the start of a remarkable journey that will change his life forever...
The stop motion in here is simply stunningly well done, and gorgeous to look at. It even manages scenes set at water that look convincing. The score is also superb, fitting the setting of the tale perfectly.
It's a film of sections. The opening has a lot to set up and is a bit of a slow burner. But once the action gets going it's initially unclear as to certain things that are going on. But then Kubo is on a quest with two special beings, Monkey [Charlize Theron] and Beetle [Matthew Mcconaughey]. The three form an excellent grouping giving some very funny bickering and character moments. Matthew Mcconaughey in particular is superb at playing his character for intended laughs.
The final quarter of the film does change direction slightly to go a little darker, but it does deliver memorable action and good answers. And has a brilliant emotional depth to it. Leading to an ending you won't forget in a hurry.
Through the narrative Kubo has an excellent character journey, and you can really feel for him and relate to him all the way. Its a great journey to take. The film might be a bit dark at points for some of the very young, hence the PG certificate. But ultimately it's a charming fable and a great watch and well worth five stars.

Kubo's Journey. A making of documentary, which is split into six parts. Which can be watched individually or all in a row. If doing the latter it runs for twenty seven minutes in total. This is a good and in depth look at the production and an excellent watch.
There's also Corner of the Earth, a three minute look at some of the settings in the film. Which is a bit too short to have much impact.
Before I purchased this I was already a fan of their previous movies 'The Boxtrolls', 'Coraline' and 'ParaNorman' and this does not disappoint. The details in the backgrounds and the characters are magical, plus watching it on a 3D TV is really special so I guarantee the video, music, storyline and acting will make it a perfect watch.

From the beginning, there are some very poignant scenes (from a grown-up perspective) set out with utmost minimalism, as Kubo struggles to get any reaction from his mother. This is lightened by Kubo's spectacular origami storytelling in the village - a theme throughout the film.
The "making of" bonus feature is great, showing the staggering effort and detail required for the stop-motion models and scenery.
