About this movie

The creators of Wallace & Gromit bring you an exciting and original story about a group of chickens determined to fly the coop–even if they can’t fly! It’s hardly poultry in motion when Rocky (Mel Gibson) attempts to teach Ginger and her feathered friends to fly…but, with teamwork, determination and a little bit o’ cluck, the fearless flock plots one last attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom.

The first full-length stop-motion animated feature is definitely EGGcellent! BUT! The flaws for this film are 2 dumb flat bad jokes: the racist joke about the horse & the "head between your knees" joke, BUT everything else about this movie is wonderful. The stop-motion animation is very similar to wallace and groumet in a great way! The voice acting felt like it's the real deal & it's very well directed, the music score truly reflects the visuals, mood, & tone of the film & it's one of the best scores i've ever heard. The characters are cartoony, cute, and likable. Mrs tweedy is the serious dark villain that would make an animal lover punch/clobber her in the face, cause she hates chickens, & knows nothing about chickens, & also bloodthirsty for chickens that will be put in a pie. It also has it's moments that are funny, & action sequences that are thrilling & puts you on the edge of your seat. This is a movie that has great stuff for kids and adults alike (suitable for ages 7 to 97).

Chicken Run takes the 60's-Era Prisoner of War genre and runs with it, much like the chickens in the movie. It centers around Ginger, a chicken trying to escape from Tweedy's Farm, who just recently installed a chicken-pie-making-machine. With a little help from an American rooster named Rocky, the chickens concoct a scheme to escape the farm and live out the rest of their days in peace. 8/8 I r8 gr8 m8.

This reminds me of animal abuse. I cant believe peta is not in the movie to defend them chickens. Thise chickens are living in poor condition and they kniw they are gonna be eaten like that. Theyre gonna be in chicken pies that i know will fail for expiered chickens. Dont let yo family watch this if u are a chickwn farmer that kill. It traumatises
