Trolls raise an orphaned boy named Eggs underground and the boy helps them fight back against an evil exterminator, Archibald Snatcher (voiced by Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley). Making peace with the fearful residents of an upper-crust Victorian-era town known for its world-class cheeses is nearly impossible. The people of the posh town do not like the race of unsightly, sewer-dwelling creatures, who may look like a fearsome bunch, they’re actually quite friendly. Winnie (voiced by Ellie Fanning), befriends both worlds and may be the key to solving the longstanding feud between the city people above, and the troll creatures below.
While it’s far from Laika’s best offering, The Boxtrolls is still packed with enough offbeat wit and visual splendor to offer a healthy dose of all-ages entertainment.” –Rotten Tomatoes
