Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Something bunny is going on...
Cheese-loving eccentric Wallace and his cunning canine pal, Gromit, investigate a mystery in Nick Park's animated adventure, in which the lovable inventor and his intrepid pup run a business ridding the town of garden pests. Using only humane methods that turn their home into a halfway house for evicted vermin, the pair stumble upon a mystery involving a voracious vegetarian monster that threatens to ruin the annual veggie-growing contest.
Nick Park is an amazing director, and his full length feature debut captures all the joy and charm of the shorts, and manages to convincingly stretch it into feature-length material with a funny, creative and wildly entertaining story.
So what if it's a little predictable plot-wise, and the characters fall a little flat, it's the wonderfully animated set-pieces, the awesome camerawork and solid jokes that elevates this into something much better. I always scratch my head in fascination of how many of these scenes were made.
Top notch filmmaking!
Not as good as I remember, pity they added a touch of King Kong to it because that was utterly idiotic.
It cool if I retroactively pin a review on here two months later? No? Cool, thanks guys!
There are many charming things about Wallace & Gromit in general, regardless of whether we're talking about the feature film or the shorts. The shorts are perhaps a better-consolidated conceptualization of what Wallace and Gromit are about, but the film does not demand that you have any idea the shorts even exist. it unto itself reintroduces and illustrates both the familiar heroes and the unfamiliar townsfolk.
The characters are great, the timing is great, the twists are great- really, this film has nary a hair out of place. The only problem is that by virtue of concept, it can only go so far comically…
"Every dog has his day."
Back in 05', much to my families dismay, I convinced everyone to stop a fun-filled day of fishing and hiking whilst we were camping and go out to see Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.
Sure enough, it was fun for me back then and is still so now. The visual gags are hilarious, the score is great, the voice actors are perfect (particularly Ralph Fiennes as the villain) and the characters and story are what takes centre above all else, which is important in something as special as Wallace & Gromit. The film never ceases it's characters or story for the sake of a silly joke, the humour is something that comes with the ride, and works well and in time with it. There's a nice tearjerking moment near the end too, which is always appreciated by me.
Delightfully british and with a wicked sense of humor, this is adorable animation at it's finest. Just goes to show how far originality and humor can go in terms of animation.
A giant carrot is subtexturally a vagina. I can't think what else you'd need in a kids' film.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Wallace & Gromit one of the best duos in the world. Great for children and has humor that entertains adults but goes over kids heads.
Even at almost a decade old, this film still feels fresh. The plot involves the lovable duo operating a humane bunny-removal service to safeguard the townspeople’s vegetables from the rascally (but adorable) creatures. Business is booming, especially as the annual vegetable festival/contest approaches, but a new threat emerges and confounds our heroes—an enormous, ravenous, and seemingly unstoppable rabbit. My wife and I watched this one with our 4 ½ year old. It was the first time he’d seen it (and the first time I’d seen it since he was born). I trusted the “G” rating that it wouldn’t be too scary, and it turned out to be a good call (although there are a few “PG” jokes that will go…
The Curse of The Were-Rabbit, animation-films can be this great and joyful. A subtleness, it gets certain mystery to its plot, and almost aspiring characters to enjoy watching.
I love the Wallace & Gromit shorts but Thought this was a bit of a let down but the way they made this is pretty cool but at some points it started to annoy me.
Wallace and his slient dog, Gromit, are exterminators of rabbits in this movie. They exterminate them to prevent the local villagers' crops from being eaten. But there is one unusual rabbit who is haunting the villagers and Wallace and Gromit have to find him and stop him before he destroys the popular Vegetable Contest before it is too late. This movie has outstanding animation and the rabbits in this movie are too damn cute.
Clay Bunnies: ★★★★★
What I learned:
I need to try stop motion animation
Wonderful, has cute clay bunnies in it and is an homage to Universal/Hammer horror rather than fucking pop culture shit no one will remember.
With stunning animation...
