Great movie - have loved it since it came out. Fresh story, cute and clever characters, for kids up to adults.

I'm sorry to anyone who likes this, I hate this.

This is the story of a boy raised by trolls living beneath a city that has wrongfully been taught to fear them. Fun for all who enjoy foundling stories, misunderstood trolls, feisty children, stories and animation that are quirky and just slightly macabre, and--of course--cheese.

Though the claymation was interesting, the plot was extremely violent/evil for what appeared to be a kid focused movie, but not develop or complex enough for adults. It was hard to invest in the story line or even really the characters. Some gaps exist like how Eggs learned to talk english, while no other troll did. As a whole, not recommended.

The regional British accents made some of the story difficult to follow. Animation was complex, fascinating for my 6 year old but too busy for my 4 year old.
I enjoyed the plot and the balance if good and bad in some characters. Overall a good family movie, but give the younger ones something to distract them during the violent scenes.

Beautiful animation and a truly clever plot, THE BOXTROLLS features one of my favourite villains in awhile. Villains always have a critical flaw, and the Snatcher's flaw is a doozy. (I wouldn't dare spoil it, though.) I feel that both THE BOXTROLLS and THE BOOK OF LIFE were genuinely great animated flicks that were overlooked this year because they lacked the big-studio marketing. I recommend both of these films (and, of course, THE LEGO MOVIE).

Fun movie!

The humor seemed for older individuals: 12 years and older. My 4-year old grandson liked looking at the DVD case but quickly lost interest.

I watched it myself. Though the animation technology was fascinating, I just couldn't get into it and I LOVE a "good" cartoon like the Croods! :)

As a grandmother and part-time nanny, I watch a lot of kids movies and enjoy some of them very much. This is a great film to watch with your kids; dramatic, hilarious, heartfelt! The work done on the animation is top notch and I am loving the innovations that animators are bringing to the screen these days.

Excellent example of stop motion animation, with sensitive art evocative of the Victorian period. The design of the film is commendable, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
