Missing Link (2019)

I had high hopes for this one, I had read it was getting good reviews. Unfortunately I found it rather dull. Galafinakis is great as the Sasquatch but not enough to make this a compelling cartoon. It’s not bad though.

PG | 1h 34min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy | 12 April 2019 (USA)
Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
Director: Chris Butler
Writer: Chris Butler
Stars: Hugh Jackman, David Walliams, Stephen Fry

Fans of Jackman and Galafinakis may enjoy this film. IT doesn’t seem catered enough to children to be a big hit with them. Because I couldn’t see a larger purpose in this film, I found it plain and ordinary. I enjoyed the Yeti film “Smallfoot” much more a few months back. With me, it scores a 6/10.

  1. It definitely was one of Laika’s weaker animated films, but it still beats out a lot of other animated films that have come out recently.
