The development of the plot very boring. Events are not delayed not intrigued. In particularly on the background is fabulous and accentuates the mogucnosti of all of history and prehistory, because with this approach you can easily insert in the plot of any fairy-tale absurdity, and everything would be "permissible". I realize this greatly facilitates the work of the writer, but unfortunately, so instead of a fairy tale, the viewer gets a primitive bike, and it is very different things. In the bike can say with three boxes of any game, and this will be acceptable in the framework of "flannelette" genre, and the tale requires the meaningfulness of spirituality and exhortation.

What is instructive in this tale, or rather, the bike? — the boy chose the evil welcome. But this choice was this is too obvious and predefined: the child refused the mysterious and frightening transcendent existence in self-sufficient "Nirvana" side side with the evil and cruel creatures, and chose known him a world of people, with emotions, creativity and "a full complement of joy and happiness" (with). In fact, it has he has remained, so to call this a cautionary tale in its ideal sense is impossible. And it all ended happily not through the moral heroism or endure the hardships and privations, and in the first place by magic. Perhaps only the feeling of inseparable unity with deceased ancestors — it's really well drawn instructive feature of this cartoon.

By the way, a typical episode of "reasonable, good, eternal". In the end the negative character suddenly "zeroed out", forgot everything, and became able to perceive itself in any new form. Here well-wishers excitedly told him how he good. — he immediately became so! It turned out that is so easy and just  a"newborn" can "sculpt" a full-fledged member of society, kind, sympathetic, honest and hard-working, — it is enough to hang him. noodles on the ears. Everything! — no work not necessary, no internal challenge, of contradictions, of struggle, of suffering, and the forging of character, not need of remorse and active repentance for the sins of the past. In fact — the profanation of the moral life. "After all, I why bad was it? Bike have not me it," — so once the postman Pechkin outlined his "way of the samurai", "passing" according to which he was good. But he has at least some reason was the bike. In this tale of evil was good, suddenly and without reason. Evil is aware of himself evil and not repented... Yes! and why it boy the end is not back to the eye, because it was so make sense?..

Poor family little world of the protagonist, with his "frozen" mom and hermit living in a cave a few depressed. So in the viewers perception between these characters and the rest of the real world once marked by a wide Gulf, in relations with the real deep human feelings they already do not called — let "suffocating" "in its own juice" your strange little world, and we will watch. The sincerity and emotion of not missing strictly at all. Even after a bizarre family reunion (Indian cinema, she is God!) these characters have become closer and dearer.

A cartoon very hard with humor. Attempts to make a joke looked pathetic and available jokes not funny. Even the beetle-the samurai, like the comic character, was rather ridiculous than funny. "And just Japanese for the taste is very hard people" (C) — probably, this explains everything, although the cartoon is actually not Japanese...

Special. The "paper" theme, thanks to which a lot of episodes and stories beaten in the original filing. Looked cool, but too obsession with of its magic, — should have just hit the strings, is all were up, moving and was needed or took the desired shape, up to ship natural size. It is not flying ship to be built as in a Russian tale, where it still we must work hard here everything is much more primitive — it was enough to play on a magical Japanese "balalaika"...

Conclusion. The best in the cartoon, on my opinion — the titles to the end under the cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". But to watch the cartoon for captioning certainly not worth it. In the rest of the cartoon "catches" anything.

In General, treat it is neutral, but is intentionally highlighted in red, for a disproportionate amount of pink saliva.

The cartoon level of "at least good" are, in total, of two types. To the first includes the Pixar cartoons, but as DreamWorks and Disney. They can boast more of a realization, which makes browsing pleasant, but not ideas that are in them, not Shine with brilliance. If these cartoons are great for all ages, other works of animation art has not so rich studios — that have as they say, "not for all". They can boast rather not implementation, and ideas, special hidden meaning, which in some cases will not understand each, also the specific atmosphere. To it can be attributed to "Ernest and Celestine, the", "Illusionist", and new cartoon — "Kubo: the Legend of the samurai".

At the beginning of "cube" seems trite, hackneyed story we have seen a thousand times. The cartoon seems trivial, in some degree, naive and childish. The plot in cartoon catchy, the cartoon becomes boring to watch and thus the fun of view cartoon just not brings. But after about the fortieth minute of the plot in the cartoon takes on an intriguing tone, and it allows you to enjoy other advantages of the cartoon.

And first, the atmosphere. The kind of atmosphere I do not remember any other cartoon that I have ever seen. It highlights among the other representatives of its genre. Japanese flavor is also catchy, though, and not as the flavor of China in"Kung fu Panda".

If not take the bill dull beginning, not me no claims to the plot of the cartoon. The creators have skillfully United in the cartoon pleasant atmosphere and an intriguing plot that makes "cube" is more universal. Interesting to see a revelation of character, cartoon abused cliché... well that's another significant plus — in the cartoon there is a trivial snotty-happy happy ending that again confirmed that cartoon stands out amongst the rest. The plot in some degree of gloomy, however, due to the intrigue and atmosphere to watch the cartoon as not boring.

Puppet animation in the cartoon certainly deserves praise. Looks great, but I have a claim to the animation of people — they looked way better in previous cartoons. Here appearance causes a little rejection.

The atmosphere and the music all cases could complement each other. Adding to the impressive atmosphere, beautiful soundtrack, the combination will turn out beautiful. However, "Kubo" this, no. On my opinion, a mediocre composer has done his job.

"Kubo: the Legend of the samurai" — cartoon for everyone. That, in fact, confirm his box office. This way out of the familiar us cartoons. Although the cartoon was not perfect, some of it can bring real pleasure from viewing. The cartoon is particularly relevant in a time when cinema has become, in mostly, soulless.

Once again I can admit in love for Studio Laika — how I them have cartoons. And importantly, I love them — they are special, no what is not like. "Corpse bride", "Coraline in country nightmares", "the boxtrolls", "Paranorm...", and now this small but honorable list rightfully joined "Kubo. The legend of the samurai". Another beautiful doll cartoon. Although the rating of this picture is quite a child 6+, but my view all it (the movie) beauty most will be able to evaluate an adult audience. As all the previous work of the Studio animation, a story about Japanese boy Kubo you'll be charming (but not scary) aura of darkness, a share of tragedy in the lives of the characters and lyrical-philosophical sense, making the adult viewer to think about the terms of life and death, loss, and memory of loved ones, the immortality of the soul. That in this picture there is similar kind of meaning is not means the cartoon is strictly not designed for children. Completely designed, except that each age category there will be its own "layer" actions and meanings.

With regards to visualization, it again beautiful. At this time — in a mysterious and mystical Eastern flavour. Amazing painstaking work of the animators — the entire time-lapse work with dolls, jewelry and work of Titanic. Bravo! Of course, as and other puppet-animated picture, the local sight in one or less "Amateur". So if You "hurt the eyes" come to life on the screen dolls, the better to pass. All the rest "Kubo and the two strings" (the original and content-the exact name) very much and highly recommended!

PS While My Guitar Gently Weeps a bit stylized Japanese folk something — on the closing credits nice addition to positive impressions of view.
