With Monkey (Charlize Theron) by his side, as well as his father's former student Beetle (Matthew McConaughey), Kubo confronts his family's past and fights the evil forces that seek to destroy his people.

  • 5 stars "An enchanting tale from Japanese mythology. Superior animation paired with an A-list cast of voice actors."
  • 5 stars "The movie was realistic and adventurous."
  • 5 stars "I took my 4 year old and my 8 year old nephews to see it. It was an original mesmerizing beautiful story. While there are topics and situations that may have been too sophisticated for the 4 year old, he seemed to be captivated by the visuals and engaging characters. I heartily recommend this movie for ALL ages."
