Animation fans will find this worth the wait, though apparently there's no story-generating software that can tap into the dark recesses of a child's psyche as cannily as Uncle Walt once did.
A friendly, if decidedly featherweight, feature.
A cute movie that -- with a G rating -- is suitable for even the smallest children.
| Original Score: 3/4
Beyond a cheeky, twisty bit of genre-tinkering, there's more here for the under-tens than over-, but it's still charming, amusing and energetic enough to win you over.
| Original Score: 3/5
Not quite the animated masterpiece one would expect of Disney of old, but nonetheless a step in the right direction.
| Original Score: 4/5
The animation is colourful and lively, if uninspired, but there are several good sight gags and the characters are both funny and engaging.
too much dancing
| Original Score: 2.5/4
It's got heart and it's got style -- what's missing is laughs.
| Original Score: 6/10
So this new Chicken Little is a hero, of sorts: a feisty little nerd in green hipster specs, who bounces off walls and babbles like Woody Allen.
Funny, fast paced, well-voiced, and beautifully animated.
| Original Score: 8/10
It has a fresh visual style and keeps the bodily function jokes to a minimum (like Pixar), but they also stuffed the movie to the gills with pop song after pop song.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The animators and voice actors have a great deal of sly fun bringing this misfit foursome to life.
The chicken and his dad seem to feel a bit like Foghorn Leghorn from the Warner Brothers cartoon
| Original Score: B
Superbly fits the literary tastes of the country in which it's set and pretty much beats them at their own game. Not bad for an auteur from the colonies.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
It's too clever by half.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A splashy, spunky tale, geared to amuse its pint-sized audience.
| Original Score: 7/10
The richest humor stems from the characters, though, and fortunately for Disney they are the most adorable bunch the studio has imagined since Lilo and Stitch.
| Original Score: 3/4
It's one of the most geekily enchanting things about Chicken Little, how it blends storybook sweetness... with kew-wel science-fiction notions...
Despite the aspirations of its scrappy hero, it does not stand out among the recent crop of computer-animated features. But it fits in just fine.
Espérons que maintenant que Pixar n'est plus là pour l'invention en animation, Disney retrouvera vite l'inspiration du passé pour ses prochains efforts.
