Hilarious and occasionally moving, Chicken Run is heaps of fun and a great family fun. Full review later.

Chicken Run is one of those movies that is really hard to describe why you like it. So rather than going off and explaining; I'm just gonna say it's a great film.

They're going to kill themselves. Want to watch?
I group of chickens live a pretty boring life. They have ambitions of escaping, but realize the probability of it happening is fairly limited. One day a rooster with a bad wing escapes the circus and arrives at the chicken coop. The chickens threaten to rat him out if he doesn't help them escape. The rooster finds himself between a rock and a hard place. Can he really help them escape?
"They don't plot, they don't scheme, and they're not organized!"
Peter Lord and Nick Park, who worked together on Wallace & Gromit, collaborate again for Chicken Run. The storyline for this picture is actually very fun and unique in the way it is told. The animation style is brilliant and fun and the voices are very well selected. The voices include Mel Gibson, Phil Daniels, Lynn Ferguson, Miranda Richardson, and Timothy Spall.
"They're going to kill us all!"
I came across this on Netflix and thought it would be an interesting movie to watch with my daughter. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and she laughed out loud several times throughout the film. This movie isn't perfect, but it is definitely entertaining, worth a viewing, and borderline worth adding to your DVD collection.

What came 1st, the Chicken or the Egg. Who cares, this film is awesome.

No one could dislike Chicken Run. The humour is likeable, even though frequent episodes of hens panicking does get slightly stale. The lead, Ginger, is marvellously voiced and effortlessly amiable, as well as Mel Gibson's chauvinistic Rooster. Younger children may find themselves a tad terrified by the obviously dark threat posed by the farmer's wife. However, this doesn't compromise the film's charm, largely constituted by the marvellous animation.

If you like "Wallace & Gromit," then you'll like this "Great Escape"-like charming film with the same tone and enjoyment. (B)

Not as good as when I watched it numerous times as a kid, but some of the slapstick and arguing between the Tweedys is still pretty damn funny, especially the line about apple pies.

A great escape movie that's basically a showcase for Nick Park's love of highly elaborate contraptions and genre mash-ups/references. Also, it's nice to see a children's movie where the main hero is a woman (granted she's a chicken, but let's not split hairs on this).

I refuse to believe that this movie is based on actual events.
This movie is about birds, for birds. Because you have to be a bird brain in order to believe that any part of this movie is real.
First of all, Chickens can not talk!
Secondly they don't wear clothes and cannot build machines.
Ughh. It was so frustrating to watch this movie knowing that some people walked out of that theater thinking all of that happened.

The first ever film I saw in the cinema, 'Chicken Run' is the ultimate British animated classic and by far one of the greatest stop-motion films ever created. Nick Park is an auteur of cinema and since 'Wallace & Gromit' has become an idol of slapstick animation. 'Chicken Run' is an exhilarating well-made adventure boasting visually stunning sequences and an amazing story supported by hilariously quirky dialogue and an amazing score from the composer duo.

this clever family film caters something for everyone. the claymation is perfectly absorbing and the accessibility of the plot is accompanied by some fast, darkly cultivated references.

If you love The Great Escape and animated movies, this might be one of your favorite films of all time.

Tão bom, cômico e educativo quanto um filme infantil deve ser. Muito melhor que as coisas de hoje.

It's a bit overrated as a kids movie, but Chicken Run will do for family entertainment. It has many ideas it wants to share, but not the right audience to share them with.
