The charismatic Sir Lionel Frost considers himself to be the world's foremost investigator of myths and monsters. Mr. Link only wants to find the missing branch of his sasquatch family, the yeti of Tibet, and hires Sir Frost to help him search. Unfortunately, Adelina Fortnight -- a fierce woman who has crossed paths with Sir Frost before -- holds the only map, and they are pursued by a villain hired by the Adventuring Society who would like Mr. Link's head as a trophy.

Another great stop motion animation adventure from Laika studios this time with a funny take on the folklore monster hunter looking for the next big find. The cast was fantastic for this and the story a lot of fun. Definitely a great family movie for everyone.

When will this be available? I am waiting for this since last month. Please push your patrons to return it as soon as possible! Tsk tsk.... How can someone be so selfish? If your patrons loves this, he/she can just buy the DVD instead of borrowing it from the library. Don't they know that others are waiting for it?? I guess not! Hurry up!

Laika animation studios tends to hit hard or misses with (fair) grace. Kubo and the Two Strings was an absolute, riveting masterpiece, a shining brilliance, but The Missing Link was...a far cry. The craft of stop-motion, as documented briefly at the end, is absolutely genius, and really an artisan skill, but the story, the characters, the decisions in plot fall a flat. And sadly, unlike other characters of the studio, one has little or no attachment to anyone. Nothing really is finished in setting up the beliefs and motives of either the characters of the villains, who are not worth either remembering nor mentioning, and they do an amazing job--not a compliment--of neglecting the plethora of available stock available from (copyright-free) late Victorian-era British monsters+characters.

At least the acting was excellent, and one of the great highlights of the movie is the clever way in which the 2nd main male character, humorously adopting the name Susan, takes every expression and figure of speech very literally--the slap stick comedy is strong with this one. I do think that Zoe Saldana's talents are underutilized and maybe a little under sung for the flat characters of the movie--of which there is a hint of a strong female lead undertone, which is started interestingly, but then executed flatly in the 2-dimensional role. Emma Thompson, is of course, as ever, immaculate--even when one is not rooting for the character. Hugh Jackman does wonderfully with what little he is given with this movie. Nevertheless, Laika Studios is gloriously creative, so I'd stick out the journey with them, should more kid's movies (and that epithet is debatable, at times) come out, which I certainly hope they do.
