Plot: The charismatic Sir Lionel Frost considers himself to be the world's foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is none of his small-minded high-society peers seems to recognize this. Sir Lionel's last chance for acceptance by the adventuring elite rests on traveling to America's… Runtime: 95 min Release Date: 12 Apr 2019
This is the fifth film from the film studio Laika. Their previous films include Coraline 2009 , ParaNorman 2012 , The Boxtrolls 2014 and Kubo and the Two Strings 2016 . Laika are an animation studio who use stop-motion animation such as how Aardman Animations use it in the same style for Wallace & Gromit.There are some very famous voices in this new film. Hugh Jackman provides the voice for Sir Lionel Frost. Zoe Saldana provides the voice for a character called Adelina Fortnight, a free-spirited woman who is well able to look after herself. Then it is Zach Galifianakis who plays the <more>
innocent Sasquatch, Mr. Link, who wants to travel across the world with Sir Lionel Frost to find any other creatures similar to himself. There are also plenty of other famous voices to be heard, such as Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson, Amrita Acharia, Timothy Olyphant, Matt Lucas and David Walliams.Missing Link is a wonderfully beautiful film. It reminds me of a really exciting adventure film which feels like a mix of Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and elements from a Western. Even though those influences are there, the film manages to do its own thing. It's written so well and the dialogue between the characters is hilarious. The film also looks amazing. Laika have a certain skill and technique which is ever so creative for this form of art. The film is so good that you forget that you're listening to Hugh Jackman or any of the other actors. You're under a spell watching the film and the entire spectacle of it all sweeps you away.One of the best and most original films I have ever seen. It doesn't matter what age you are, anybody will enjoy this wonderful film! 🙂 10/10
Wow, This Was So Funny, So Clever, So Memorable, I Loved It! (by martimusross)
Missing LinkWhat can I say, I was blown away by this movie, it had a touch of several different previously successful cartoons, I sensed a bit of Frozen, Tin Tin and even Ice Age, but overall this struck new ground in its strength of character development built upon micro-gestures and vocal exaggeration. This technique was present in Spider-verse, but this was on a whole new level here, the characters were all so carefully written, by the end we knew them all, how they would act and behave, they had all become our friends and we loved them.When the movie finally had to end you had a sense of <more>
grief, you wanted more, what was going to happen next, wow, this was an amazing feeling that such a story could evoke such a response in the audience, after-all we weren't marching on Rome or anticipating cannibalism lolFrankly, I didn't expect much, but how wrong could I be, this movie had more than a touch of magic and I defy anyone not to enjoy it. I would add that it could be understood on so many levels so it was suitable for the whole family and geeks like me.I really cannot find any fault in this movie at all, it was so dense in detail you could watch it again and again, all the voice artists were brilliant, Hugh Jackman pulled out all the stops as Lionel Frost, after the disaster of Vice last year, Mr Link, played by Zach Galifianakis got the tone perfectly right, but Lord Piggot-Dunceb, played by Stephen Fry, was a tour-de-force.This must definitely be considered as a contender for an Oscar next year, and I would give one to Stephen Fry for his brilliant performance, he did the Harry Potter audiobooks and now this, unbelievable, he must be one of the best voiceover artists since Mel Blanc.
In Victorian London, old-school adventurer Sir Lionel Frost Hugh Jackman hopes to prove himself as the world's leading expert on myths and monsters by discovering proof of the missing link Zach Galifianakis . Together with old flame Adelina Fortnight Zoe Saldana , they must journey around the world to help the lonely bigfoot find his Yeti cousins in the mountains. But dark forces will be trying to stop them. While the animation big hitters like Pixar and Illumination continue to duke it out for CGI supremacy, Laika Animation Studios has quietly but consistently been burning a small <more>
flame for stop-motion. This is the fifth film from America's answer to Aardman, and once again they have proven themselves masters of their painstaking claymation craft, with ambitions that are both modest and mighty. The same versatility that took the Oregon-based company from horror Coraline to Asian mysticism Kubo & The Two Strings to trolls in boxes Boxtrolls now brings their attention to Victorian England, for a ripping yarn adventure across the seas and skies. Our dashing hero here is the rosy-beaked Sir Lionel Frost voiced with rakish vigour by Jackman , a daring explorer desperate to earn the international renown and respect he so richly believes he deserves. In particular, Frost hopes to earn the validation - and membership - of a pompous and highly exclusive London institution, headed by a hissable bad guy Stephen Fry, on full Melchett mode . A stunningly-staged globetrotting journey with visual scale and dynamism. Desperate to leave his mark on the world, Frost journeys to the Pacific Northwest, to find the legendary Bigfoot, and perhaps prove the evolutionary missing link that has eluded scientists. As it turns out, 'Mr Link' or as he's later called, for reasons explained in gloriously Pythonesque terms, 'Susan' turns out to be a very chipper mythical beast. With superb voice work from Galifianakis, he's a gentle giant just looking for a home - and like a combination of Spock and Drax the Destroyer, he's hilariously literal-minded.So off they set, joined by the spiky if slightly underwritten map-bearer Adelina Fortnight Saldana , for a stunningly-staged globetrotting journey in search of the mysterious Yeti of the Nepalese mountains. It's a story of such visual scale and dynamism - over 100 sets were built for the film - that you sense Laika's animation team are often deliberately choosing the path of most resistance. One key sequence involves a footchase on a listing ship during a stormy sea crossing, its corridors barreling, Inception-style. During scenes like this, stop to consider that what are you watching is actually just plasticine models being incrementally nudged, and enjoy having your mind boggled.While technically and artistically uninhibited, it is, admittedly, narratively more low key. Perhaps that's deliberate, a counterbalance to the visual excitement. The story feels simple, even a little slight: the real adventure was inside them all along! But when you have such strong, disarming character work; such clever, subtle nods to the crimes of colonialism and old world conservatism; and such gorgeous art direction, the kind that swells the heart and nourishes the soul; you realise that Laika are a true treasure. Here's hoping that flame is burning for some time to come.A charming family-friendly story about adventure and friendship - told with bar-raising artistic craft and technical skill. We'd expect nothing less from Laika.
Ahh Laika, It's Good to Have You Back! (by masonrobledo)
That's right, Laika is back with another animated stop-motion film!, I always loved Laika With their films, I enjoyed all of them, although Boxtrolls was their weakest one, I still liked it, Coraline was great, Paranorman was hilarious and Kubo and the Two Strings was beautiful, easily their best film, so now with Chris Butler Co-Director of Paranormal as director and writer of the newest Laika adventure, it's bound to be amazing once again!, so Lionsgate was kind enough to release it in the UK before the US, so I got a chance to see it today and...... they still don't <more>
disappoint, okay it's not perfect or their best one yet, but it still has a lot to offer, so let's talk about it!.So it's about this famous explorer named Lionel Frost Hugh Jackman on a quest to find the unique creature know as the Sasquatch, one that can talk and is named Mr. Link Zach Galifianakis , Mr. Link is tired of living alone and wants to join his cousins up at the Himalayas, so Lionel is promised to take him there so he can have a place and so he can prove to the other people that he is worthy of this club, I'll just leave it there, it's pretty basic and straightforward, which I'm afraid is why the writing is quite weak making the movie easily predicable, however, thanks the funny and amusing comedy, the writing is more forgiven since it's far more harmless then any other Laika film, which is not a bad thing, it's make the movie somewhat clever in it's moral and setting, it also has clever jokes along with it, sure it has told it humour and some obvious jokes, but that's kind of the charm of it, it's funny in a simple, clever and fun way, it shows that Laika want to make a movie that's not quite as dark as the other films that they made, it's got some great action that is very well timed and entertaining, the writing maybe weak and predicable, but thanks to it's fun comedy, clever jokes, heart, moral and great action, it makes the movie more fun for everyone and can pack in a lot of elements, into one and it surprisingly works here!.Oh Laika, I missed your stop-motion animaton and I'm so glad to see it back on the big screen and looking amazing as always, the animation is one of the best things to come out of the movie, it has so much detail in it, of course being a stop-motion film, it has smooth and fast movements, each character has a Identifiable look and every character here looks great, from Mr. Link to Lionel Frost and many more, the backgrounds look gorgeous, the action scenes are well made and once again fun to watch and unlike Laika's other films, this one is more bright and colourful then dark and grey, the animation still proves that stop-motion is still a wonderful piece of animation and Laika is still the best at what they do!.The characters are delightful and fun..... for the most part, Lionel Frost is a charming and amusing character, I enjoyed his moments and he is a good character, however he can act a bit out of character which would involve being a bit selfish, I know that's kind of part of his character but it didn't help since he's somewhat smug, but he is fun, Mr. Link is sweet, funny, charming and lots of fun, my favourite character in the film, Adelina Fortnight Zoe Saldana is a helpful character and possible love interest for Frost and is also quite funny, as for the others, quite forgettable and to answer your question, yes, there is a villain or two, but they are quite bland and forgettable, although entertaining thanks for the performances, but easily the worst Laika villains so far, the voice acting is fantastic, Hugh Jackman does a great job of voicing Frost, Zoe Saldana is delightful as Fortnight, Stephen Fry and Matt Lucas and Timothy Olyphant are great as the villains, Emma Thompson sounds like she is having a lot of fun with her role, along with David Walliums being as charming and funny as ever, Zach Galifianakis is the perfect voice for Mr. Link, the characters can be forgettable, but thanks to some wonderful voice acting and three very likeable main characters, it makes the movie more funnier as it goes on.Well, clearly not the best one from the studio, but I would say second best with Kubo and the Two Strings still being the best one, Missing Link is a pretty solid Laika film and another great and fun film from them, it has a interesting concept and fun story, great humour, well-crafted stop-motion animation and three charming main characters with some wonderful performances, sure it's predicable and it has a somewhat selfish hero and weak villains, but they can easily be forgiven since this movie is another great example of great stop-motion, Laika fans will enjoy it and families can have a blast with it, I'm looking forward to what Laika does next, hopefully it was be even more amazing, so with all that said, it's time to pay Nickalodeon a visit with a certain animated film about a theme park...Missing Link easily gets a 9.8/10.
Missing Link is a heartwarming and funny film with incredible visuals and great voice acting from Zach Galifianakis, Hugh Jackman and Zoe Saldana. It's got a nice pace and some impressive set pieces and good messages. Only negative is that a few of the jokes aren't funny.
Loved it (by scott-hassinger)
Took my 4 and 6 year old to this movie. Laughed as much as they did.
Parents should know... (by downthehobbitholeblog)
The visuals and humor in this movie are spot on. But parents should know that there is some typical cartoon violence and that the storyline might be a little too meaty for younger viewers who might get easily bored. We suggest 7/8yrs. old and up. Don't fear going and watching this with your kids- we think you'll laugh and enjoy it!
Laika Never Fail To Entertain (by rcolgan)
Studio Laika has quickly built up a strong reputation for themselves as being the equivalent of Pixar in the world of stop motion animation. From their beginnings in bringing Neil Gaiman's nightmarish Coraline to life to the epic scale of Kubo and the Two Strings, Laika keeps consistently making some of the most impressive pieces of stop motion filmmaking and Missing Link is no exception.The film stars Hugh Jackman as Sir Lionel Frost, an adventurer who travels the world searching for legendary creatures. He's very charismatic, albeit also very selfish with his ambition to become <more>
recognised for his exciting exploits. The only problem, his high society peers think he's nuts. They don't believe in any the creatures he claims to have seen and disregard his progressive ideas such as evolution. After receiving a letter claiming to know the location of the Missing Link in the human evolutionary chain, he issues a challenge to the leader of the distinguished gentlemen society Lord Piggot-Dunceby who's name is just as fun to write as it is to say . If he can bring back proof of the Missing Link he will be allowed in to the society and earn the respect of his peers, in a setup which bares a strong resemblance to Cornelius Fogg's challenge in Around the World in 80 Days.Upon arriving in America he sets out on an epic quest to find this legendary creature that has been a mystery to man for thousands of years, before finding him in about five minutes. Also the creature turns out not to be a savage beast but is instead a friendly and slightly hairier version of Zach Galifianakis who Frost names Mr Link. It turns out that Mr Link is the one who wrote the letter and agrees to provide proof of his existence in exchange for Frost taking him to Shangri-La to reunite with his yeti cousins so he can become part of a family. Thus begins their great adventure which includes stealing a map from Frost's former lover, confrontations with a deadly bounty hunter and a granny with a chicken on her head.It's a fairly basic plot and one that we've seen from a lot of adventure films before, but just like most great adventure films its real strength comes more from the charm of the characters and the incredible scenery. Laika apparently made over 110 sets for the film and all that effort shows in every frame of the film. From the gorgeous wilderness of the old west to the close confines of an old ocean liner the films packed full of fantastic visual eye candy. We also spend just the right amount of time in each of the films different environments to absorb all the atmosphere from these settings and allow these environments control the tone of the film.Despite its anti colonial themes, the films humour ironically seemed to have a very strong British influence. At times it felt more like an Aardman production with its clever wordplay and the Frosts' deadpan sarcastic nature. And just like all Laika's work, they sneak in a lot of heavy themes like the subtle effects of prejudice in our society, but without overshadowing the lighthearted tone of the film.Unlike Laika's other films which feel a lot more self contained, this feels like there could be a lot of great potential for future sequels. It would be great to see Frost and Mr Link go after other great legends like Atlantis or travelling across Ireland to capture a leprechaun. Though whether ideas like this will go the same way as the planned sequels to The Road to El Dorado that never got made waits to be seen, but as a standalone adventure this is another strong outing for Laika who always leave me eagerly waiting to see whatever project they have coming out next.
A heartwarming story with plenty of laughs and brilliantly animated. Perfect runtime to keep your attention and never feel like it drags on at any point. Zach Galifianakis clearly trying something different here, and somehow finding his way. There are times where it is hard to match Zach Galifianakis with the creature on the screen, but I do not think that Galifianakis was the problem there. If anything, the animators struggled to keep up with Galifianakis' sublime antics and not vice-versa. The story is simple enough, or should I say it doesn't try to be too much. Not a classic, but <more>
entertaining, well done, with enough laughs that you will be able to say you had a great time.
