    Although Aardman never leaves anything to be desired when it comes to animation, the story of Early Man seems more like a jumble of cliches from other films and often seems uninspired.

    Its story and characters aren't as compelling as Aardman's previous efforts, the mix of soccer and a prehistoric setting don't stick the landing, and some of its jokes are lazy and formulaic, but it retains its unique visual style and light-hearted tone, which is enough to make animation enthusiasts satisfied.

    It's a lazy Saturday afternoon and you have nothing to do. "I know,"you exclaim, "I'll watch Early Man." A half hour of claymation boredom later, it's a lazy Saturday afternoon and you have nothing to do.

    This is a laugh-out-loud movie that a whole family would definitely enjoy. This is everything good about Aardman's movies and I definitely recommend it.

    Early Man is another enjoyable entry into the Aardman catalogue, and, whilst not being some of their best work, is still hilarious and entertaining. The voice cast is great and they bring plenty of charisma and energy into the already energetic film from it's unique stop-frame animation style. The villain is exactly what I want from an Aardman film which is a wacky antagonist which provides conflict but isn't taken too seriously by the filmmakers, and he is voiced incredibly by Tom Hiddleston. However, they focus too much on the football aspect which for people who aren't huge fans of the game (me included) makes the film less watchable and enjoyable.
