Trivia

In the scene where Dug enters the Bronze-age village, a zebra pelt can be seen lying in the road. Although the reference may go over the heads of the American audience, it is obviously a pun on the British term "zebra crossing". See more »

Goofs

Loord Nooth wants to remove Goona from the field for being a girl, despite the team of primitives already consisting of several women. What he should have done is remove her for not being a primitive at all, since the match was supposed to be Real Bronzio vs the primitives. See more »

Aardman always put a smile on my face; it's no 'Wallace & Gromit', but few things are.
28 January 2018 | by Pjtaylor-96-138044See all my reviews

Nick Park's claymation creations always manage to put a smile on my face. While it doesn't quite reach the heights of their 'Wallace & Gromit' franchise, 'Early Man (2018)' is a consistently clever and chuckle-worthy affair with plenty of laughs to be had at its typically home-spun humour that just gets better the longer you think about it. The beautifully tangible animation is compounded by awesomely ostentatious vocal work and a wonderfully written script, crafting a fully formed world just one-step removed from our own. It is also far and away the best football film I've seen. Though I'm not a huge fan of the sport and always find the formula of its features rather dull, the piece had me both riveted and grinning ear-to-ear during its ball-to-boots sequences with its wisecracking yet respectful, satirical wit which remains good-natured and suitably subtle even when taking the easiest, or sometimes most obscure, of hits. 7/10
