Aardman Animations certainly know how to make an entertaining movie. While Shaun the Sheep would probably appeal to the younger age group, I could think of worse ways to spend 85 minutes in the cinema. As with Big Hero 6, it’s the level of detail to the animation that creates a fantastic environment for the characters to inhabit. As with Wallace and Gromit or Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep is a splendid example of stop-frame animation – a most labour-intensive, yet utterly enthralling cinematic art-form.
It’s all about the timing when it comes to comedy and there are many pitch-perfect moments within Shaun the Sheep to keep you chuckling along. The simplicity to the plot by no means detracts from the proceedings and helps to keep its targeted age group transfixed at all times. Plenty of sight gags and some base humour are never a bad thing, with the overall package an experience to enjoy for all that take the time to see it. Shaun the Sheep is yet another hit for Aardman. The kids will love it!
