Probably the weakest Aardman film, but that doesn't mean this film isn't any good. Early Man is actually a pleasant, well-paced and fun film all around.
I watched this without knowing anything what the film is all about and was taken aback that this is actually an underdog sports film, complete with a training montage and a predictable dilemma during the second act. It's not really that bad. I actually liked and enjoyed most of the film but I can't help but to sigh because of the familiarity and predictability of it. All of the voice actors really did a great job but I'm going to single out my praise for Tom Hiddleston's voice performance. Seriously, his voice in here was unrecognizable and one of a kind!
