The Shaun the Sheep Movie: Not Baa-d


I’ve been a fan of Aardman from my earliest years. I remember watching the opening sequence of Wallace and Gromit’s ‘A Close Shave’ again and again as I fell in love with their lively animation style and hilarious characters. Though inconsistent in quality, their films have never lost their aesthetic charm and wide-eyed innocence. Their latest effort, The Shaun the Sheep Movie, proves to be another worthy addition to the Aardman collection, but falls short of their best on account of its stop-and-start action and rather clunky feel.
