News & Interviews for Flushed Away
Critic Reviews for Flushed Away
The action sequences mostly uninspired and the characterisations and voice-overs underwhelming.
It's an interesting approach to bridging two very different disciplines -- it's just a pity they didn't find a better script to try it out on.
Despite the attempts to make this slick and bang up-to-date - plasma screens and pop culture references abound - it still feels curiously caught in aspic.
So confusing... so jarring... so utterly irritating, how I long for "Wallace and Gromit" at this moment...
Exciting, adventurous, and flush with visual and verbal gags, Aardman's latest stands out from the many other children's animations released this year because it seems a labour of love rather than a soulless commodity.
Audience Reviews for Flushed Away
Cute and silly fun under jolly ol' London Town when a fancy kept house mouse is thrust into the sewers and gets to hobnob with the regular ol' locals AND to meet the handy girl of his dreams (actually the reverse of how this formula usually plays = rich, spoiled girl meets jack of all trades regular bloke). The treat of this playground of the imagination is how you get from point A to point B, with more visual cheesy puns (including a French mime/ninja frog) than you can count, and is capably assisted by pretty prestigious voice casting. You might not laugh but I dare you not to smile throughout on this cheeky trip through London's Underground. No, not THAT one, but below that.
Aardman have gone and made another smart and clever animation, that features humor for both adults and children. Primarily, the humor is created through the superb choice of voice actors. From Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet, to Bill Nighy, Andy Serkis and even Ian McKellen. 'Flushed Away' does features very few but clever references to another Aardman masterpiece, 'Wallace & Gromit'.So those who love the cheese loving duo, do your best to seek them out.
It wasn't good but it certainly wasn't terrible i just hate that it was made by aardman but its not done with stop motion instead its cg made to look like stop motion
