Review of the Week

20th October 2017

Well done to Daniel (Year 5) for his review of Boxtrolls



The film The Boxtrolls is an animated film with surprises around every corner. My favourite part was when Snacher blew up after eating too much cheese because it made me jump. At the end of the film it was really funny because you could see the animation. I loved the fact that the Boxtrolls were named after their boxes and how they behaved. This film isn't just for children it's also for adults because it has a few jokes that only adults would understand. I rate this film 4 stars because it was funny but a little bit disgusting.
