Movie Review: The Jaw Dropping Kubo and the Two Strings

By Jeremy Say Um… I knew what I was getting into when I went to watch Kubo and the Two Strings. It was supposed to be just another one of your teens and kids movies with parents being dragged along by their kids. As the movie started, surrounding me with quite a few kids, I couldn’t help wonder to myself if I was even in the right age group.

With Justin Lin as the director, Simon Pegg and Doug Jung as the writers this time around, the feel and pacing of the movie is certainly different from J.J. Abrams’ last two outings in the series.
