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.
