What the Critics say
C. Fuchs I was never bored by what transpired and there are enough entertaining and winning elements and moments to lift this above mediocrity. It's just too bad that with as much love, time and effort that obviously went into turning stationary objects into living creatures, the same wasn't also applied to the script to make it reach the same heights.
Tomatometer While it's far from Laika's best offering, The Boxtrolls is still packed with enough offbeat wit and visual splendor to offer a healthy dose of all-ages entertainment.
Staff evaluation Imaginative adventure has lots of peril, nasty villain.
