Laika is a name that absolutely needs to be remembered, the US cousins of Aardman are still chugging along, one painstaking stop-motion shot at a time. The degree of care that goes into every detail of these films is clear to see.


And Missing Link is no slouch. Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) plans to distinguish himself among London’s professional explorers, by procuring evidence that prehistoric beasties still walk among us. Upon receiving a letter off on spindly, stop-motion legs our hero goes, traveling to the woods where this behemoth resides. As it turns out, ‘Mr Link’ (or as he’s later called… Susan) turns out to be a very chipper mythical beast (Zach Galifianakis). He’s a gentle giant just looking for a home, and he’s surprisingly literal-minded.


This is one of those films where the destination is much less important than the journey, and the slower pacing of the third act allow us to savour the stunning vistas that establish each new setting. While not as grand or quite as exciting as Kubo and the Two Strings (their magnum opus) Missing Link is nevertheless a rare and wonderful specimen. (research Jack Whiting) Fantastic and very funny. Don’t miss.
