'Missing Link' - Movie Review

We're introduced first to Sir Lionel Frost, a classically calm British gentleman explorer who finds the Loch Ness Monster ... but whose photographic proof is destroyed in the ensuing fracas with the monster. To prove himself to the "Society of Great Men" that he wishes to join, he shortly sets off in pursuit of Sasquatch in the American northwest. Many adventures follow.

The movie received positive reviews and disastrous box office. I watched it partly because of the reviews, mostly because I have a huge respect for Laika. Laika is the studio behind the production, who also created the excellent "ParaNorman" and "Kubo and the Two Strings." While I didn't dislike this movie, I found it their most lightweight and least distinctive creation. It's a good movie, but after "ParaNorman" and "Kubo" it feels like they're not living up to their potential (an unfortunate burden they must carry).
