Wallace and Gromit comes of age painting 'history' into animation
25 February 2018 | by ips138See all my reviews

For me, its the best so far and I loved Chicken Run!

This time, the story is depicting historic events all compressed into one in a fun way. We had the extinction of the dinosaurs 65m years ago, the meeting of the pre-historic man with the bronze age man and their evolution. Adding coliseum 'games' into the mix. Sure, not an accurate history lesson, but its a bit of fun. I love how they did away with the fighting at the 'games' and expertly handled greed and manipulation. All wrapped in the fun signature animation.

The adults were never forgotten throughout with plenty of innuendos aimed at keeping them entertained.

Overall, I thought this was a great offering. My children loved it (4 and 9) and my 9 year old giving it a 9 score :).
