|Cheese loving people of Cheesebridge|
I gotta admit, there’s something about the British accent that I love and this movie featured some of the best pronunciation. Heck, try saying The Boxtrolls in an English twang and you will get what I mean. That’s because some of the voice talents used are England’s most gifted folks. Ben Kingsley stood out the most with his twist of evil vocal, speaking or singing wise. The visual are an added bonus with every emotions captured well. The music in the background. The storyline however was predictable but keep in mind it’s catered for kids so don’t expect any Oscar winning edition. Just sit back and enjoy the trip around Cheesebridge.

After watching the usual animated type of movies, the style of the film grabs ones attention. The intricate way the town and its characters are portrayed shows the hard put in to produce this flick. Despite the weak storyline, there is an underlying message. The age old, don’t judge the book by its cover. The Boxtrolls may appear like foul creatures but the truth will be revealed later on. Just like life, sometimes we judged too early only to regret our action later. Bring your little ones so they could learns a lesson while enjoy Eggs, Fish, Fragile, Shoes and the gang run around Cheesebridge.
