The productions wit resides in its cultural distinction and commentary on football, and the restlessness of the children in the theater was not enough to dissuade me from appreciating the subtle humor of Early Man.

Early Man's non-verbal warthog has more screen time than any female character.

A witty and warm-hearted romp.

Directed by Nick Park and written by Mark Burton and James Higginson, the film celebrates kindness, family and teamwork. It also sends the message that greed will get you nowhere.

It's silly stuff, part Flintstones, part kiddie Quest for Fire , and while it does contain quite a few laughs it doesn't have the same anarchic spirit of earlier Aardman films.

An adventure that holds little in the way of surprises but is still a fun, sweet and enjoyable ride through Aardman's prehistoric valley.

Light-hearted humour frequently falls on deaf ears giving an air of a rush job to get this completed, Bland runs through its defence and lands a spectacular free kick.

With characters that are unappealing both emotionally and visually, this 89-minute movie -- which is only 79 minutes excluding credits -- turns out to be [Aardman's] own Cars 2.

Early Man is loads of fun, plain and simple, geared toward a younger audience but still completely accessible to parents and other older folks.

Early Man is guaranteed fun for all the family and a big welcome back to stop-motion animation at its finest.

A fantastic and friendly comedy with soccer as a central element. [Full Review in Spanish]

It is charming, it has an adorable simplicity, a magnetism that is hard to describe, and it's superior to practically all the current animated cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's refreshingly tactile, but ultimately comes up short when compared to the usually high Aardman standard.

A fine movie for kids that will bore older audiences who are looking for something that has depth.

Aardman takes us to the plasticine Pleistocene age with this joyous stop-motion animation.

Serves as a reminder that Aardman is always out there creating worlds just as distinctive in their tone and overall aesthetic as anything Disney or Pixar were producing in their '50s or '90s heydays.

A successful and welcome return to directing for the inimitable Nick Park...Despite failing to match the originality of his previous work, Early Man nonetheless shines on its own, bizarre, terms.

I just didn't think it was funny and I didn't think that it was engaging as a sports movie.

It's got that wonderful stop-motion look, a dynamite voice cast and the signature cheekily innocent wit that has become a hallmark of [Nick] Park's work.

These characters are so adorably goofy and charming that you'll want to reach into the screen just so you can pinch their pudgy little cheeks.
