      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Chicken Run has all the charm of Nick Park's Wallace & Gromit, and something for everybody. The voice acting is fabulous, the slapstick is brilliant, and the action sequences are spectacular. Read critic reviews

      • Nov 23, 2014

        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).

        Fantastic animation and artwork, brilliantly performed voiceovers, a hilarious script and heaps of Aardman detail, this film is successful on every level and withstands inordinate amounts of rewatching.

        The stop-motion animation is impressive with well-executed action sequences to boost. Unfortunately, the story treads on too much familiar ground and tends to feel too mellow at times. The characters do a good job for the purposes they serve even though not one is particularly memorable. Despite some really good moments of humor, this film fails to be as endearing as Wallace and Gromit, another Aardman Animation effort.
