3.5 stars out of 4 -- "One of the most impressive elements of KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS -- besides its dazzling stop-motion animation, its powerful performances and its transporting score -- is the amount of credit it gives its audience, particularly its younger viewers." - 08/19/2016 RogerEbert.com
