When I watched Early Man on HBO the past month, I was unaware it was an awards season contender.
From Aardman Animations, the people behind Wallace and Gromit, Early Man is a wacky, very British claymation (stop motion) animated movie that’s very, very, very funny-weird. Two glowing clay thumbs up from me! The British-iest thing one can write about is cavemen challenging a more advanced culture to a soccer/football match.
The voiceovers are done by stars like Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston. You cannot pick a single “best of” actor here. The ensemble cast voicing the film is impeccable!
How might I review this film without giving away any of the jokes? I cannot. Watch it if you think Pixar errs a little too safe these days. The quirky humor is the same you loved in The Pirates! Band of Misfits. Ham night for pirates! LOL.
