  • Catherine Bray

    I can't remember the last time I saw a family animation so visually rich, tightly scripted and charmingly performed which was also built on a sound and progressive message.

    It’s the rare animated film that might amuse adults and kids while slipping a useful message to the latter.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    The Boxtrolls charms, in every way it can – with its gorgeous animation style that combines lo-fi with high-tech (the puppets were printed using 3D printers), with the huggable nature of the characters, and with the boldness of its storytelling and thematic concerns.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    The Boxtrolls is a kiddie charmer that makes you laugh, cower, and think of Hitler. That’s an unusual trifecta, but then again, this is an unusual film.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    It's gloriously inventive, wonderfully funny, and gorgeous to look at, the screen filled with sometimes overwhelming detail.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Start to finish, it’s a delight.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    In an age when most cartoon companies have traded pens for pixels, the magicians at Laika continue to create fantastically elaborate universes out of pure elbow grease.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    While the plot is straightforward, characters are well-drawn, many defined by ironic delusions.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The movie has its political-parable aspect, with malevolent forces convincing both the 1% and the 99% that they have reasons to fear the other. But The Boxtrolls is mainly a delight for the sharp eye and the capricious mind.

    Time Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    While The Boxtrolls does follow kiddie-action genre conventions in its big, noisy climax — a hectic brawl of explosions, collisions and oversize machines — it also finds an impressive number of quiet, eccentric and haunting moments along the way.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Boxtrolls’ world is fantastically detailed and physical, with every frame crammed with complicated machinery, hand-painted textures and handcrafted props, and a sense of vast and focused attention.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Staff [Not Credited]

    There’s slapstick and silliness to entertain small children and nefarious plots for the adult audience to untangle, making this a far more handsome prospect than any of its characters could imagine.

    Empire Full Review
  • Mary Houlihan

    The Boxtrolls has a rich, edgy texture that makes it stand out from other animated films.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    With top-notch animation, effective voice casting, and a screenplay that falters only toward the end when faced with the need to provide a resolution, The Boxtrolls offers solid entertainment for older children and the parents that accompany them.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The story of The Boxtrolls, in lesser hands, might have turned out only so-so. Under Laika’s loving, labor-intensive touch, it takes on a kind of magic.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • John Semley

    It’s a felt, funny, bracingly sincere kids’ movie. And even more refreshing, it takes as a theme our social fixation with waste, salvage and repackaging.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    The Boxtrolls hold their own on screen, too, and children will fall in love with the creatures' mischievous antics, gurgling language and tendency to use their boxes as both a disguise and a portable bedroom.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    The characters aren't clever or cool enough to command attention in the visually busy world the Laika animators have created, and the story starts abruptly and ends in a very familiar place. It's hard to believe so much talent went into making The Boxtrolls without a better script to support it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Joe McGovern

    The script lacks the wit of "Wallace & Gromit."

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ethan Gilsdorf

    We never know them as characters, particularly father figure Fish, because screenwriters Irena Brignull and Adam Pava have them speak an un-translated, Jawa-Gollum gibberish, not English.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Boxtrolls stands reasonably well on its own, as a cool steampunk fairy-tale that serves as yet another testament to the artistry of the folks at Laika.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    You can see the years of effort, the polish and precision that went into creating The Boxtrolls... But somehow it still doesn't add up to enough.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    Set it against the shiny blandishments that have passed for family fun this season, and it starts to look vaguely radical.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Breathlessly paced and surreally funny, ‘The Boxtrolls’ fizzes with visual invention and wild slapstick. But the grotesquerie is overbearing.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    The Boxtrolls is a swing-and-miss for Laika; when you move forward with revolutionary techniques while standing still in terms of your themes, stories and settings, no amount of technical trickery or animation genius can bring the boring to vivid life.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    What ultimately brings down The Boxtrolls isn’t the film’s willingness to wade into grimmer, more gruesome waters than your average kids’ animated adventure. It’s the failure to anchor its often misanthropic story in a character or relationship strong enough to offer a glimpse of redemption—a place of respite in an ugly, cheese-obsessed world.

    Slate Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The Boxtrolls remains relentlessly busy up through its final credits, and it's clever in a nattering way. But it's virtually charmless.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    In many ways a beautiful movie, and yet in other ways it’s not very good at all. As an achievement in stop-motion animation, it’s stunning — seamless and detailed, so perfectly done that it’s easy to forget that you’re witnessing skill and not magic.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Engaging as it is to look at, this stop-motion animation film from the young Oregon studio Laika seems to have been masterminded by people thinking, “Everyone loves Pixar. So let’s do everything the opposite!” Admirably contrarian. Like being cast overboard and calling out for an anvil.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The flippancy toward the story's thematic concerns and character construction suggests that the film, like the boxtrolls' myriad gadgets and inventions, was largely built from used parts.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The meticulously crafted world is stunning to behold, imagined to the minutest detail and photographed with the sort of dramatic lighting and dynamic camera movement rarely seen in stop-motion. Trouble is, it’s not a place most folks would care to spend any time.

    Variety Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Enchantment is an essential ingredient of an animated film, particularly one that skirts dark edges. The Boxtrolls doesn't have nearly enough of it.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Kids who get a kick out of the macabre will enjoy this exquisitely crafted but tedious film.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Rooney

    There’s a crucial shortage of heart here, from the messy storytelling to the hit-or-miss humor and unattractive visuals.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Lacking appealing characters (or character design), this misfire will, with any luck, eventually become a forgotten footnote among the output of a production company that has, up until now, shown real promise at making films that defy the usual tropes and storytelling mechanisms in contemporary family-friendly animation.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The Boxtrolls is a visually repellent pile of stop-motion animation, populated by grotesques and filmed in the palette of an exhumed casket's interior. It can frighten small children and bore anyone, with its cracked, cackled British wit.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    The Boxtrolls feels rough-and-tumble and not as much fun by half.
