Chicken Run


(out of 5)

Hilarious claymation film from the creator of the always wonderful Wallace and Gromit series, Nick Park. In his first feature film (which took seven years to develop), Park takes us into the world of a chicken coop, where pensive hens lay in wait until they can escape the harsh reality that surrounds them: their farmer owners are planning to bake them into pies.  is excellent as the voice of Ginger, the chicken who decides to lead the exodus.  lends a bit of American marketing help as the voice of the handsome Rocky, a rooster who supposedly can fly. The best animated film of its year.
