Missing Link Review

Good Morning Lovelies,

In recent years, animations have changed the way in which we see films. Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks and more have made their features as equally appealing to adults as they have to children. Something that is working on a mass scale.

With Missing Link, out on DVD, Blu-Ray and digitally from today, marking their fifth feature animators Laika has done just this. And on a very successful scale. Set in Victorian London, where adventurer Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) is working on proving one of the world’s biggest myths, the film sees him try to uncover the truth about the missing link (Zach Galifianakis).

Along with his old love Adeline Fortnight (Zoe Saldana), the pair travel the world to try and find the Yeti like creature who has kept everyone guessing for years. However, it is no easy task and they are soon under threat for doing so.

Using stop-motion to make their features, Missing Link and Laika have made a connection that feels old-school but fresh. The pair will remind audiences of the brilliance that came from the classic Wallace and Gromit or Chicken Run, as they endlessly show the care and detail that has come from each. Every hair, suit structure and more can be seen, and it is a true delight. As is capturing the first comedy for the team.

With director and writer Chris Butler making a low key but adventurous feature full of love and care, it is a delight to watch. A truly honest adventure that has a lot of heart.
