Early Man Review

From the creator of renowned characters such as Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep, Nick Park gives you the stop-motion comedy, 'Early Man'. A story that brings a light and quirky reimagining of pre-historic eras, 'Early man' will have you giggling throughout. Filled with ridiculous humour for children and well-intended innuendos for the more mature audience, you will be hard-pressed not to chuckle away.  

The voice acting, and animation play a key factor in bringing a unique experience for all. Nick Park's different and highly acknowledged animation style is still a marvellous viewing to behold. The bizarre facial constructions only add to the hilarity placed within the film. Plus, the actors bring a fun and quick-witted element to their characters. It is worth noting how strange the actors sound from their normal accents and dictions. So, their diversity must be applauded for that simple fact alone.  

The story itself is a very predictable but kooky ride. You do sometimes question the logic behind the plot, but it can be overlooked. Frankly, it is a children's film, so you will be hard pressed to find some hidden depth other than what is displayed. You will expect nothing more nor less than what is given to you through the screen. It cannot be held up against the likes of Pixar or Disney as that is not what is intended for this movie.  

It is charming and has a warmth to the characters which are gladly expressed. You will find yourself watching this on a chilled-out Sunday afternoon after looking for something easy, yet enjoyable to watch. It is a pleasant film which holds great humour but cannot be considered great.
