Profoundly moving and visually stunning Like “Song of the Sea,” this film for our family was profoundly moving, visually stunning, entertaining, mystical, and very heartwarming.

Escalated quickly Kubo has an amazing story and I 100% appreciate all the artists that had worked on this masterpiece of a film. However, everything escalated so quickly and it was a bit too cliché.
