Have you seen THE BOXTROLLS yet? I never was able to see this film in the theater, so we were really excited about the opportunity to review it and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised!
About: From the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman comes a magical family adventure about heroes in all shapes and sizes: The Boxtrolls. Quirky, mischievous and good-hearted, these box-wearing creatures have lovingly raised a human boy named “Eggs” (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright) in a charming cavern below the bustling streets of Cheesebridge. But when evil Archibald Snatcher (voiced by Ben Kingsley) decides to capture the lovable misfits, it’s up to Eggs and his feisty young friend, Winnie (voiced by Elle Fanning,) to save the Boxtrolls. Also featuring the voice talents of Jared Harris, Nick Frost, Toni Collette and Tracy Morgan, critics are calling The Boxtrolls “a delectable treat!” (Brian Truitt, USA Today)
Our thoughts? I really was surprised at how charming this movie was! It was very unique and I really enjoyed the story. It was a refreshing little movie because it really isn’t like anything else that I have seen. My kids got a big kick out of the characters and their personalities and we all enjoyed the Boxtrolls themselves, they are so cute! This is definitely one that we will watch again (and again) and I think that it would make a nice addition to your family movie collection. This is a really fun movie for the entire family!
Here’s a fun slideshow to give you a peek at all of the characters and excitement:
