    Still a very watchable classic movie. Has all the tension and action required.

    ★★★★½ Watched 20 Feb, 2015

    Really enjoyed Shaun the Sheep. With no dialogue whatsoever it relies totally on the nuances of the characters movements and sounds. Laugh out loud funny in several places the story is charming and well paced. Some great visual gags. Great to see the late Stanley Unwin in the credits, his gobbledegook being used as tannoy announcements throughout the film.

    ★★★★ Rewatched 02 May, 2012 2

    Hard to review. It's a good film, a very good film but I don't think it's an all-time classic.

    A lot shorter than I remember and for some reason the story felt less involved, especially the whole Natalie sub-plot. I remembered a lot from previous viewings, not sure if that helped. I've also seen the forward version before.

    If you've never seen it before make sure you keep your eyes open throughout as there are several subtle clues. The story runs backwards and it will keep you thinking long after viewing as you piece it all together.

    Quite possibly the worst film I have ever watched. Utterly reprehensible drivel that wasted two and a half hours of my life.
