Run time: 87 mins

This sheep-quel mixes the same jolliness and English eccentricity with a Spielbergian sci-fi twist – and pulls it off with typical Aardman charm.


The plot plays a bit like ET with Shaun in the Elliott role. Shaun and his flock encounter Lu-la, an alien who has crash-landed near Mossy Bottom Farm. With government agents hunting her down, Shaun decides to defy farm dog Bitzer and help Lu-la return home.  Shaun, the littlest of heroes, provides much delight and fun in a film that has tremendous crossover for both adults and children alike.


Aardman’s charming and stupendously popular ruminant again gets by on a steady stream of bleats, squeaks and rubbery facial expressions. The result is another great showcase for the animation house’s powers of non-verbal storytelling that’s a giddy delight for kids, and just witty and knowing enough for grown-ups eg: one visual gag involving a piece of toast resembling the monolith from Kubrick’s 2001 is classic Aardman. It’s one giant leap for lamb kind. (Jack Whiting) Nice gag Jack. Farmageddon is pure joy from the painstaking and genious animaters at Aardman’s stop-frame-click shop floor. Bring two streets…
