i loved this movie and it was pretty good and it was really sweet too and i loved the stop action too and i loved the great voice actors and everything about this movie too....
Great movie but the dvd starts and stops but definitely worth watching. Some violent scenes tho. But all in all, awesome.
Not quite what I was expecting based on the trailers but SO funny and also touching.
Missing Link is a film that deserves much more recognition than it currently has because it’s amazing in many different aspects. The animation is stop-motion, and the characters and sets are designed with such detail, colour, and life like no other stop-motion film I’ve ever seen. On top of that, the character designs are unique, intriguing, and, I think, a bold and new look compared to most animation films today, partly because it is stop-motion. This film was, overall, visually stunning! Moving on to the story, it begins as a regular adventure of someone looking for the legendary sasquatch, but later on, the film expands into much more as the journey later focuses on delivering the sasquatch to a new home with others of its kind. The story is complex and enthralling, and it's filled with compassion, excellent character development, and action. Also, this film is absolutely hilarious, and what’s nice about the humour is that it isn’t childish but very clever—I feel like any age can enjoy it! The ending of the film is also very satisfying; it completes the character development of the main characters, even if some of it is unexpected. Overall, I believe everyone should give Missing Link a try! 5/5 stars.

Great family movie with a great lesson for everyone to learn. It deserves to do much better in the box office. If you are looking for a cheerful funny movie to spend family time with your children, this is the one!
Not sure why this did not do well a the box office. It was entertaining. Maybe the script wasn't as funny or clever as ParaNorman, but it was still enjoyable. The Hugh Jackman figure really captured Hugh Jackman. My only complaint is that, in this particular movie, the stop-motion figures and scenery are starting to look like regular animation. The colors are too bright. In some scenes you really can't tell that a 3-D figure is being used; they look like drawn animation.
Really very cool.
Fun for all the family. Great stop motion animation. Great cast. Great plot. Lots of fun.
Funny link. The characters of Sir Lionel Frost and Adelina are not really fun to watch, they are not as interesting as the link. The link is fun to watch.
I can understand why this film won Best Animated Feature at the Golden Globes. It was a wonderful film with a good story.
The main character played by Hugh Jackman was the epitome of a British hero. Zoe Saldana played a feisty heroine.
I would definitely say this would be a perfect movie for family movie night. There is enough in this movie for the whole family to enjoy, including the parents.
Great voice actors but the plot and pace was rather dry to me. Slow, actually. The trailer showed pretty much all the funny bits.
Poor animation. No facial expressions and the dialogue is wooden. Really didn't enjoy this one at all.
Another great stop motion animation adventure from Laika studios this time with a funny take on the folklore monster hunter looking for the next big find. The cast was fantastic for this and the story a lot of fun. Definitely a great family movie for everyone.
When will this be available? I am waiting for this since last month. Please push your patrons to return it as soon as possible! Tsk tsk.... How can someone be so selfish? If your patrons loves this, he/she can just buy the DVD instead of borrowing it from the library. Don't they know that others are waiting for it?? I guess not! Hurry up!
Fun adventure, funny family movie.
Laika animation studios tends to hit hard or misses with (fair) grace. Kubo and the Two Strings was an absolute, riveting masterpiece, a shining brilliance, but The Missing Link was...a far cry. The craft of stop-motion, as documented briefly at the end, is absolutely genius, and really an artisan skill, but the story, the characters, the decisions in plot fall a flat. And sadly, unlike other characters of the studio, one has little or no attachment to anyone. Nothing really is finished in setting up the beliefs and motives of either the characters of the villains, who are not worth either remembering nor mentioning, and they do an amazing job--not a compliment--of neglecting the plethora of available stock available from (copyright-free) late Victorian-era British monsters+characters.
At least the acting was excellent, and one of the great highlights of the movie is the clever way in which the 2nd main male character, humorously adopting the name Susan, takes every expression and figure of speech very literally--the slap stick comedy is strong with this one. I do think that Zoe Saldana's talents are underutilized and maybe a little under sung for the flat characters of the movie--of which there is a hint of a strong female lead undertone, which is started interestingly, but then executed flatly in the 2-dimensional role. Emma Thompson, is of course, as ever, immaculate--even when one is not rooting for the character. Hugh Jackman does wonderfully with what little he is given with this movie. Nevertheless, Laika Studios is gloriously creative, so I'd stick out the journey with them, should more kid's movies (and that epithet is debatable, at times) come out, which I certainly hope they do.
