Review of the Week

25th May 2018


Well done to Robert (Year 6) for his review of Kubo and the Two Strings.



Well to kick start this review I will get the bad part done first - sorry. I did think the storyline was a bit confusing definitely towards the end. Secondly the part at the beginning was very confusing, the fact that his mum was zombie during the day but full of life at night. Now the not so good parts over, let’s start with the good parts. The main point of the story is that Kubo is a very skilled story teller who makes paper art when he tells them. But Kubo has only one eye and if he stays out after dark his grandfather will come for his second eye. So Kubo has to find three parts of armour to defeat his grandfather. My favourite character was the beetle since he is very comedic and a bit mental. I hope you watch this film and hope you enjoyed my review. See you next time.


I give it a 3/5!!
