When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
Shaun is a sheep who doesn't follow the flock - in fact, he leads them into all sorts of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Shaun and his pals run ... See full summary »

Even though it's nowhere near as good as its predecessor, 'A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (2019)' is still an entertaining effort from Aardman, who remain one of the foremost animation studios. As you'd expect, it's drenched in charm. It's not particularly funny, though. Don't get me wrong, it's amusing and often chuckle-worthy. It's just that there weren't many - if any - really big laughs, which were frequent in the first flick. Still, it has oodles of charm, as I mentioned, and is a terrifically tactile affair, the stop-motion being propelled by a slightly 'home-grown' feel that's accentuated by its slight imperfections (fingerprints, for example). The craft on display here is actually amazing. It's most obvious in the animation but it also extends to the writing. It's essentially a silent movie, one that transcends all boundaries of language and, even, age. The fact that it manages to tell a full story, packed with character arcs and backstories, without dialogue is a huge achievement. It's not just about the gags, it's about the heart. Of course, its broad narrative is rather obvious if you stop to think about it. Nevertheless, it's great fun. It does skew slightly young with its humour, but a surprising number of its more childish gags still hit rather hard and it's packed with referential, pun-based detail destined to delight any sci-fi fan. It isn't complicated, but it's enjoyable. You'll probably be smiling all the way through. I do think its 'supporting sheep', so to speak, are a little short-changed as they're mostly relegated to a side-plot. Still, a bit of wholesome entertainment can go a long way; this goes to outer-space. 7/10
