Missing Link

Missing Link is one of two animated films focused on returning a mythical creature home this year. While it lacks the heart of Abominable, the latest movie from LAIKA is a fun romp.

The story centers around self-absorbed adventurer Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman) who discovers a Sasquatch (Zach Galifianakis) in the Pacific Northwest and agrees to see it to the Himalays, dressed-up as Frost's assistant, where its distant cousins live. The villains of the peace are the members of and exclusive club that has barred Frost from entry for his ridiculous beliefs (which he hasn't been able to prove... until now). Along for the ride is Frost's ex-girlfriend (Zoe Saldana).

Available on Blu-ray and DVD, extras include commentary by writer/director Chris Butler, the film's trailer, a photo gallery, and various short featurettes on the making of the film. You can certainly do better than Missing Link but there's fun to be had on Frost's adventure across the world.

[20th Century Fox, Blu-ray $34.99 / DVD $29.98]
