• ‘Early Man' Film Review: Aardman Scores a Rare Whiff With Caveman Soccer Story

    8 days ago - By The Wrap

    Britain's Aardman ranks alongside Pixar and Studio Ghibli as one of this generation's greatest animation studios, from early shorts like “Creature Comforts” to the ongoing adventures of Shaun the Sheep and Wallace & Gromit to such beloved features as “Chicken Run” and “Arthur Christmas.” So it's more than a little disappointing that Aardman's latest, “Early Man,” is so crushingly mediocre.
    When a studio has made some of the finest animation in the history of cinema, it's quite a letdown to describe their new movie as better than the “Ice Age” series but not quite up to “The Croods.”
