The Boxtrolls is the weakest of Laika’s productions, yet it’s still a worthwhile watch that shows off a meticulously attractive visual show. As usual Laika brought an incredible level of quality and detail to the city of Cheesebridge and to the world inhabited by White Hats, Red Hats & Boxtrolls. The Boxtrolls is a quirky story about a boy, Eggs, who was raised by a community of Boxtrolls. They live their lives underground until the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher, decides to get rid of all the Boxtrolls. The Boxtrolls is a stop-motion animation film with a kid-friendly story yet has very dark undertones. The villain is scary. The Boxtrolls are adorable and goofy. Eggs is a spectacular young boy full of love.
