The last, however, for Hvatson is similar to death, as it has a terrible allergy to cheese. But ambitions застят to the villain of an eye, and it behind another catches one коробяк while at last to the aid монстрикам their pupil – grown in a vault 10-year-old the orphan Eggz who at all does not suspect does not come that he is a person, instead of the troll.

The American animation studio Laika strikingly differs from the competitors. While Pixar, DreamWorks and others create computer graphics and use bright, "candy" colors, animators of Laika pore over Gothic and gloomy and excentric doll animated films where nobody is surprised by the little girl, with delight arguing on the blood rivers, or the little boy who everywhere sees illusive dead men.

For an ornament of scenery of the film 55 grades of the fake cheese which has been carefully copied from the real cheese heads were used

The new, third creation of Laika after «Koralina in the Country of nightmares» and "Paranormana" is her most grandiose and technically perfected cloth and if you love doll animation, you can already stop to read the review and to run behind tickets because it is better than anything in this style you will not see to an exit of the following picture of studio. But whether there are at «A family of monsters» other advantages, besides unique, tremendous work with the dolls, leaving far behind all «Nightmares before Christmas»?

Persons of dolls gathered from the details printed on 3D-printers, and it gave to animators fast access to other-wordly quantity of options of a mimicry. The protagonist, for example, had 1,4 million potential looks!

Certainly, is! First of all, "Family" is a holiday not only on the street of fans of doll animated films, but also on the street of admirers a paropanka. If the picture smelled, it would exhale not a cheese smell, and a style smell – the tape is literally impregnated with comical stylizations under the Victorian England added with freakish mechanisms and devices (in free time коробяки make stuff of the human garbage picked up during night sorties). That there is a steam megarobot which in the culmination nearly does not carry Syrburg! And what in the film the doll suits, what scenery, what city small streets and the areas … M-m-m, лепота!

The designs of the characters which have corrected the main miss of "Paranorman" are good also. Artists of the previous tape Laika went too far with art ugliness, and it was impossible to look at "Paranorman’s" some rather positive characters without shudder though they were not a zombie, and ordinary people. In «A family of monsters» villains (especially Hvatson) are ugly only, and Eggz, Winnie’s his girlfriend and other positive characters are rather attractive, that it would be desirable to put their figures on the shelf and to admire them every day.

At last, the plot of a tape develops is fascinating and without delays, and it successfully combines adventures, jokes, experiences and sudden scenary turns.

Besides, in "Family" anybody from heroes does not tear out the book from hands of dead men and does not do anything such that it is not necessary to show to small children (yes, it again a hint on "Paranorman").
