ODEON says...

Set in ancient Japan, ‘Kubo And The Two Strings’ is the epic story of a young boy who sets out on a quest to reclaim his father’s magical armour.

Kubo spends most of his time looking after his mother – at least, until a pair of spirits find him and recommence an ancient feud. Joining forces with Monkey and Beetle, he goes on a journey to find out what happened to his father, and why he’s being hunted. 

Join him on his quest in ‘Kubo And The Two Strings’, a sumptuous animated adventure from the creators of ‘Coraline’ and ‘The Boxtrolls’.

amazing animation with brilliant voice work and superb storytelling, 3rd best film of 2017 . must see

Great film!

Reviewer: DerKritikerDate: 2016-10-01

Fantastic animation and a great original story with a different feel to it, rather than the typical Hollywood story-lines. However, I would not recommend this film for children under 10 - its too scary & sad - ours had some nightmares

Great PG movie

Reviewer: Will22Date: 2016-09-19

Fantastic movie with beautiful animation and a great sense of adventure and creativity. May be a bit scary for the younger ones, but any Parent who takes 'Parental Guidance' seriously will know if it's too much for their under-10.

Should be a 12A

Reviewer: workingmamaDate: 2016-09-17

Even my 7 year old found this deeply distressing. The lead character spends the whole film being hunted by scary creatures and the animation is so good that when characters are cut to bleed or killed it's too real. It's made them scared at night.
