Aro Recommended Chicken Run


USA / UK 2000, 84 minutes
Dir. Nick Park, Peter Lord
Rating: [G]
Genres: Family / Animation


Aroview: Britain's Aardman animation studio make the feature film leap with the aid of Hollywood and pull it off with wit and spirit in tact, while making great strides on the animated side. The homage to 'The Great Escape' will be lost on most, but this eco-friendly update about a band of chickens escaping battery-farm purgatory with the help of a heroic Rooster, makes for a plucking good yarn.

The characters too, are a perfect match to the vocal archetypes provided by Mel Gibson, Julia Sawalha, Miranda Richardson, Jane Horrocks, Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Phil Daniels.
