Based on George Orwell's classic novel, Animal Farm is a powerful allegory about political corruption and class warfare. Fed up with the abuses of their human masters, the animals on Mayor farm stage a revolution and take control, but once in power the pigs set themselves up as a ruling class and make the other animals subservient. Featuring the voice talents of Kelsey Grammer, Ian Holm, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Patrick Stewart, the film has quite an impressive cast. Additionally, Jim Henson's Creature Shop does some extraordinary work with the animal puppets. On the other hand, the CGi is rather hit and miss (especially the mouth moments). Yet despite whatever problems it has, Animal Farm is faithful to Orwell's original work and retains its ever relevant message about power corrupting.
