Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of Dug, along with sidekick Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age City to save their home.
This is the first Gnomeo & Juliet film to be rated PG by the MPAA, unlike the first film which was rated G, despite that film also having been labelled for "Some Rude and Suggestive Humor", and releasing after the MPAA got more strict in 2010. See more »
Characters speak of "the HMS Nimrod" which is incorrect for a ship's designation. It should be "the Nimrod" or "HMS Nimrod". Ships should never be called "the HMS" anything. See more »
To be fair, it was needlessly complicated but that's what super-villains do.

No gnomes were harmed in the making of this motion picture... well, okay, maybe there were a couple. See more »
I went to see this movie expecting little to nothing, but what I got in return was a fully developed well made animated movie. That contained no "twerking" or "fart jokes" like in the trailer (I think they were only animated for the trailer, not too sure why). The movie is smart and funny, it has good messages for kids and maybe even adults. Super action packed and also for any Sherlock fans, I spotted a couple sherlock related easter eggs.
It is not only exciting but very beautifully animated and the lighting is also stunning. I think that this take on Sherlock Holmes is a very different one but still stays true to Conan Doyle's story (the easter eggs are very clever). I believe it is a good way to introduce kids to those characters.
It is also impressive since this movie came from Paramount which has little to no experience in the animation world. I have no idea how the creators of this movie were able to make "Sherlock Gnomes" into a really great animated movie, that is closer to a Disney or Pixar type movie then an illumination movie.
Last thing, not too sure why its getting such terrible reviews (19% on rotten tomatoes) I would say at worst some parts of the movie are mediocre, but it still does not deserve 19%. Some people really must have it out for this film.
highly recommend :)
