Complete list. :-(
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…
You have to love that Mel Gibson's first line in this movie is "FREEDOM!"
better prison drama than orange is the new black
Brilliant movie about the Holocaust and foreign intervention.
Overall, everything about this film is very solid from its voice acting, its humor, its score, and especially its animation. It's a well-paced, really nice piece of animation that's pretty harmless and has fun with itself to allow the audience to have a good time. (GRADE: B)
Yeah, it's a little cliched, but I love the jokes and characters throughout.
How exactly do chickens kiss anyway?
Tramas de fuga de prisões geralmente dão ótimas filmes, mas apenas estúdios de animação como a Aardman e a Dreamworks tem talento suficientes para fazer com que a fuga de galinhas seja interessante a tal ponto de ser perfeito.
Vemos aqui um galinheiro dominado por uma megera que explora as galinhas para vender seus ovos. Quando um misterioso galo que diz poder voar aterriza nesse galinheiro, as galinhas farão de tudo para saber como voar e se livrar de seu cativeiro.
Chicken Run é uma genial paródia de filmes de fuga de prisão, tendo as galinhas como os prisioneiros e os donos do galinheiro como os perversos diretores. Tudo está presente: uma forte lider de prisioneiras, uma diretora tirana, um…
ginger is a feminist icon
Finally saw this. Better for how the hype & enthusiasm never prompted me to rush into it.
Transcends prison break formula into a grander, bleaker study of fascism and those persevering to escape it. Was thrilled by the sophisticated production design. Fascinated by how the humans recognize the chickens as clearly intelligent, yet cruelly disregard their intelligence as insignificant. Still navigating its gender/sexual politics; Ginger & Rocky pretty standard opposites attract, though I'm perceptive of any queer subtext amongst the hens, not to mention the rats.
