A disappointing CG-animated film.
The action sequences mostly uninspired and the characterisations and voice-overs underwhelming.
They try a little too hard. All this frantic action...
Here's hoping that Flushed Away won't be the last gurgle from Aardman in feature-film form. Aardman shows us that animated humor, even in the toilet, can still be good clean fun.
Most of the fun is in the deft characterizations, the zippy banter, and the joyous sight gags
...It's rat-a-tat pop culture references, but consistently hilarious.
This movie has so many ingredients that I should love... [but] I find the characters all to be unlikable.
Flushed Away, directed by David Bowers and Sam Fell, is creatively realized, especially in how it takes "found" materials underground and re-imagines London landmarks.
Aiding the movie greatly is its excellent voice casting.
It's smarter than all the other 2006 animated movies, save for Monster House.
The result is a movie that has glossier and more elaborately designed backgrounds while retaining the traditional values of storytelling and performance -- and, of course, talking animals.
Nice action, fun animation, good voice acting, mediocre to dull story. In the end it all balances out.
Cute and silly fun under jolly ol' London Town when a fancy kept house mouse is thrust into the sewers and gets to hobnob with the regular ol' locals AND to meet the handy girl of his dreams (actually the reverse of how this formula usually plays = rich, spoiled girl meets jack of all trades regular bloke). The treat of this playground of the imagination is how you get from point A to point B, with more visual cheesy puns (including a French mime/ninja frog) than you can count, and is capably assisted by pretty prestigious voice casting. You might not laugh but I dare you not to smile throughout on this cheeky trip through London's Underground. No, not THAT one, but below that.
Aardman have gone and made another smart and clever animation, that features humor for both adults and children. Primarily, the humor is created through the superb choice of voice actors. From Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet, to Bill Nighy, Andy Serkis and even Ian McKellen. 'Flushed Away' does features very few but clever references to another Aardman masterpiece, 'Wallace & Gromit'.So those who love the cheese loving duo, do your best to seek them out.
It wasn't good but it certainly wasn't terrible i just hate that it was made by aardman but its not done with stop motion instead its cg made to look like stop motion
It was enjoyable but lacked something.
