The Boxtrolls live happily beneath the streets of Cheesebridge, until the town's villain, Archibald Snatcher, comes up with an idea to get rid of all the Boxtrolls. As The Boxtrolls start to disappear Eggs then decides it's time to head above ground and check out what's happening....
Alyssa's Little Opinion: I was a little bit scared and sat on my mum, but really I did like it, I didn't hide my eyes!!!! It was very funny when the girl bite the naughty man, that made me laugh so much. My favourite part was when the naughty man exploded into cheese, I laughed and laughed and laughed.
Ellie's Little Opinion: I liked The Boxtrolls but I was a little unsure at first and a little bit scared. As the movie went on I did enjoy it and it became less scary. My favourite part was when Eggs (the boy) and Fish were playing music together.
I liked how the Boxtrolls names were on their box as a pictures, like Shoe had a picture of a shoe on his box and Fish had a picture of a fish - that was really cute. I would like to make a box for myself in the shape of a fish but I will be called shoe ???
I felt the start of the movie was a little confusing it didn't really explain what was happening (or maybe that was me) there are a few laughs throughout the movie but it is full of action and anticipation. It is a family film but it might scare the real little ones, the older kids would prefer it.
The film is all about friends sticking together and helping each other out and facing their fears. This film would be a winner for the kids these upcoming school holidays.
