Trivia

The gag where Dug, Goona and Hognob jump out of the window and their fall is broken by a roll of toilet paper was originally intended by Nick Park for inclusion in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005), but he couldn't find a way of fitting it in. See more »

Although it's far from Aardman's best, 'Early Man' is still a wonderfully entertaining family film that will appeal to all ages.
28 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Although it isn't Aardman at the top of their game, 'Early Man' is still a fantastically entertaining film with excellent stop-motion animation and a satisfyingly energetic cast. Their newest film from Oscar winning director Nick Park tells the story of a prehistoric tribe that have to work together in order to save their home from the impending doom of the Bronze Age. Aardman once again uses expert sight gags and word play to generate multiple laughs from the audience and, although the jokes don't always land, they are all genuinely clever and you can't help but appreciate the thought that has gone into them all. The film is however let down slightly by its somewhat generic and predictable story, but the fast pace and constant humour doesn't make this into a huge problem.

Overall 'Early Man' is a very well crafted, extremely entertaining family film that will appeal to all ages, which includes an excellent voice cast who are clearly having just as much fun as we are. 7/10.
