Stenk: [Stenk stands over Lionel, who is dangling from a ledge] This ain't about the pay-check anymore, just good old-fashioned, self-centred pride.

Something Missing
8 May 2019 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

I really do wish I liked Laika's films more than I do. There's something so endearing about the way they make movies, but I can't seem to connect to the stories as much as Pixar/Disney animation. Missing Link is far better than the trailers made it out to be, containing even a few true laugh out loud moments. Anchored by strong voice-over performances from Hugh Jackman and Zach Galifianakis, Missing Link is a serviceable animated adventure in a very crowded 2019. I sure hope Laika can find a nice balance of the creative energy they always bring to the table, with a more universally welcoming story, something akin to what Pixar does.
