Chicken Run

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.

Audience Reviews for Chicken Run

Take "The Great Escape" and switch the story to a English barnyard, where a covey of fowl have had it with intolerable conditions and want out. Doesn't seem like much but the beautifully succinct animation (which can convey just about any emotion Aardmann so chooses), a warmly told tale, and a cast of diverse characters to root for and you are drawn into this surprisingly charming experience. Well done stuff.

An exhilarating stop-motion animation that is not only impressively well made and visually spectacular but above all else should be proud of its delicious story full of adorable characters, hilarious dialogue and amazing action scenes, making for so much fun.

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.

This film has a hugely undeniable charm, it is exciting and brilliant to look at. The detail of the animation is simply a spectacle and the voice acting is a real talent. I feel that this film is so much better then the Wallace and Grommit pieces of work. You will care so much about the characters and there are moments in the film that are hilarious when it's not telling a well thought out story that is.
