Chicken Run (2000)
Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Chicken Run
Even without Wallace and Gromit, most of the trademark joys are here: the compound of squashy creatures and heavy machinery, the wide, open-ended rictus of a toothy smile, and the great Parkian gulp.
It coaxes you to laugh and cry, flatters your intelligence, and practically guarantees a cheap night out: at dinner afterward, no one's going to be ordering anything but salad.
What gives this movie its oddly strong grip on a viewer's heart is a physical tenderness inseparable from the nature of claymation.
Most of the time Chicken Run entertains, instructs, involves and enchants.
Run to Chicken Run. This clay-animation comedy is the most entertaining animal story since Babe.
Audience Reviews for Chicken Run
An exhilarating stop-motion animation that not only proves to be impressively well made and visually spectacular but should be proud above all else 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.
