Movie: The Boxtrolls

The Boxtrolls is a 96 minutes Animation where a young orphaned boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator. 

In Resume:  It’s a tale of class envy and attempted genocide in a mountaintop Victorian-era township called Cheesebridge, where access to that dairy product in all its most flavorful forms is what separates the rich “White Hats” from the poor in red. Down below ground level live the Boxtrolls, mischievous nonverbal creatures outfitted in recycled cartons. Each of them takes its name from its packaging: Fish, Shoe, Fragile, etc.

The saddest misstep here is that while the kind industrious Boxtrolls are the downtrodden of the story, they are also treated as such by the screenwriters. Their fate becomes entirely secondary to Snatcher’s lust for position and wealth, to Eggs’ friendship with plucky Winnie, and to the boy’s reunion with a lost figure from his past. And frankly, when there are trolls in peril in the mix, who cares about all that other stuff? =D

I would recommend to all Animation lovers and give it a 8/10, you know how much I love animations ;D
