Review: KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS (2016)

Review: KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS (2016)

Set a long time ago in ancient Japan, KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS tells a story about a brave one-eyed boy named Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson), who earn a living by telling stories to the village folks using his guitar and magical origami props. His overprotective mother, in the meantime, warns him not to stay out after dark because she fears Kubo's evil grandfather, the Moon King (Ralph Fiennes) might find him and claims his other eye. When Kubo inadvertently breaks the rule one night, he is attacked by his two aunts, The Sisters (Rooney Mara). But luckily, his mother arrives just in time to save him by using her remaining magical powers. After Kubo wakes up the following morning, he finds himself surrounded by a talking female Monkey (Charlize Theron). The Monkey, who happens to be Kubo's guardian, tells her that the only way to defend himself against the Moon King is to locate three missing artefacts: his father's sword, helmet and armour. As Kubo and the Monkey embark on a long journey, they soon join by an oversized man-beetle (Matthew McConaughey).
