This ain't no chick flick. It's poultry in motion.
Having been hopelessly repressed and facing eventual certain death at the British chicken farm where they are held, Rocky the american rooster and Ginger the chicken decide to rebel against the evil Mr. and Mrs. Tweedy, the farm's owners. Rocky and Ginger lead their fellow chickens in a great escape from the murderous farmers and their farm of doom.
Gripping prison drama about a cock looking for release.
when i was 6 i thought this was a horror movie
Peter Lord and Nick Park's "Chicken Run" is a lively and whimsically artful animated adventure. With high-caliber voice talent and a tone that moves from melancholy to triumphant, the film thoughtfully engages and thoroughly entertains.
"Chicken Run" revolves around the feathered residents of a poultry farm who, when faced with the farmers' axe, decide to plot an escape. With the assistance of a Mel Gibson-voiced rooster, the chickens plan and execute their leap to freedom.
The story allows for Lord and Park to build something smart and exciting. The animation is delightful, painstakingly delivering the light and heavy tones of the script. Focusing on the chicken characters and their struggle, the film takes its time to heat up; but its…
Today was my oldest son Yorel's 4th birthday. My wife and I wanted to pick a movie to watch that the kids hadn't seen. I'd seen Chicken Run before, but my wife and two sons had not. I didn't like it as much on this re-watch as I did back in 2000 but I still liked it and my wife and kids enjoyed it. I would write a proper review but I can't think about or watch this film without this review popping into my head. DirkH said everything you need to know in one sentence.
Childhood classic that holds up. Makes me consider vegetarianism, but as soon as dinner comes by I reconsider. Chicken Run is unashamedly, quintessentially English, like Aardman always manages to be, a quality we don't see enough in our own films!
An epic and underrated soundtrack too. Seriously, check it on Spotify. What a soundtrack.
One of the first movies I saw in the cinema together with the lady I can now call my wife, was Chicken Run. Now, 13 years later I felt like a rewatch was in order, together with our 2 young rooster chicks.
On the egg farm, the chickens are eager to flee. With Ginger in charge, they tried almost everything, but things don't work out as they are intended to.
That is, until one day, like a deus ex machina, it looks like the solution is falling from the sky, in the form of an American rooster. And that's when the real fun begins.
The sequence when the chickens are initiated in flying lessons is hilarious. With the two mice…
never have so many puns been made in one film before
Funny, smart, pretty, fun and exciting. A worthy stab at the war/concentration camp film with some inspired casting, impeccable setpieces and exceptional animation.
I'm seeing a lot of Wallaces dressed as a chicken. I like!
I've been watching this movie since I was 3 years old. That was 17 years ago and I always thought it was pretty cool.
But watching it now, I kinda cannot believe that someone actually pitched this idea and get a pass. And ever weirder, made it out to be one of the cleverest and funniest animated movies ever. This movie is pure genius in several levels, Phil Lord and Nick Park are very underrated...
The Great Escape but with clay chickens! As brilliant as it is bizarre.
pro-veganism. incredible graphics. saved the chickens.
Love dis shiz
A little cliched in places, but overall pretty good. I certainly wasn't expecting it to be a "Great Escape" parody. Thank god it didn't end the same. That would've been weird.
Complete list. :-(
Who said I wasn't an animation fan? To tell the truth, I haven't been into it as much in recent…
