EARLY MAN (Theatrical Release United States 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

Early Man—great stop-motion animation—presents a simple, yet creative story suitable for all ages. The downside of the film is some of the character development is not as well-defined as in other Aardman Studios films such as Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, and Chicken Run. But the wonderful animation makes up for some of that lack. The storyline itself is memorable and quite comical.

Buy a ticket
? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Aardman Studios produces a ‘feel good’ stop motion animated piece of entertainment that can be watched and enjoyed by all age groups. Well done, fun watch despite the lack of good character development.
