Synopsis:
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, 'Early Man' tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug (Eddie Redmayne), along with sidekick Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age city in a battle to beat them at their own game.

Disappointing - Early Man review by AM

Spoiler Alert
13/06/2018

Was expecting great things as previous films so good but this definitely missed the mark. Could do so much about early life but to focus on football - just didn't work for me.

Rather boring

Disappointing - Early Man review by PB

Spoiler Alert
23/06/2018

With such a strong track record I expected a lot from this, but it's sadly rather lacking. The animation is as wonderful as you would expect, and there are some good jokes here and there. The problem lies with the plot, which can be summed up with one word - football. That's really all this movie is about, and the stone age setting is entirely superfluous and wasted. If you're not into football (I'm not), then there's little to hold the interest unfortunately.

Football, Football, Football, but no Dinosaurs at all! - Early Man review by CS

Spoiler Alert
25/06/2018

Being a great fan of Aardman who brought us such classics as Wallace and Grommit, Shaun the Sheep, Creature Comforts etc, usually they produce very strong, funny and original films and shirt stories. However, apart from a blatant attempt at cashing in on the Football World Cup, what the point of this film was, is beyond me! 'Early Man' set in the Stone Age, with Romans, no Dinosaurs , Woolly Mammoths or Sabre Tooth Tigers, but a massive Mallard Duck, completely out of place. Not wanting to be a spoiler, but really there is no plot, because this film is entirely about a Football Match between Romans and Cavemen. If you're into Football (which I'm not), then you'll probably love it and find it funny, if you're not, then you'll probably find it a real bore and not funny at all, which I didn't either! I found this really boring to watch, this is probably the first dud that Aardman have produced and I can see it in the bargain bins very soon!
