Highly Suspect Reviews: Missing Link

Missing Link Movie Review


In this new animated film from Laika studios, Hugh Jackman plays a ‘myths and monsters investigator’ (IE: cryptozoologist), Sir Lionel Frost. Sir Frost wants nothing more than to be accepted by his adventuring peers led by the mustache-twirling Lord Piggot-Dunceby (Stephen Fry). Unfortunately, he’d rather see Sir Frost die from his hired thug (Timothy Olyphant) than accept him into their ranks. An adventure to find the Sasquatch leads him to the creature (Zach Galifianakis) who turns out to want nothing more than to find others like him. A pact is made to get the newly dubbed Mr. Link to the snowy home of the possibly mythical Yeti. To do it, they’ll need the help of a map in the possession of Adelina Fortnight (Zoe Saldana) who isn’t thrilled about the idea. Will they survive their harrowing journey? Could this possibly live up to Laika’s last film Kubo and the Two Strings? All these answers and more in the review with Chris, Beau, and Michael right here.


Directed by: Chris Butler

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Zach Galifianakis, Timothy Olyphant, Stephen Fry, Zoe Saldana, David Walliams, Matt Lucas, Emma Thompson
