  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Punny humor, silly slapstick and classic cartoon tropes abound in Butler’s tale, but he’s also used his evolutionary theme to layer in more modern concepts like animal rights, feminism and male sensitivity.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: The visual flair is beyond compare, but the stodgy plot is definitely not.
  • Courtney Howard @
    • Excerpt: While the film is a tad slight when it comes to narrative gravitas and character pathos, it’s ultimately entertaining, humorous, light-hearted revelry.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: A quite literally cartoonishly awful protagonist, a plot that makes no sense, lowbrow humor, and terrible gender dynamics add up to an unpleasant retro mess.

    • Excerpt: With less excitement comes less bombast—something you should know going in. I personally like that Laika is willing to work in different genres and now at vastly different paces too.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Missing Link may be [Laika’s] funniest film on the jokes-per-minute scale.
