An American box office hit; a raging success in Britain; critically acclaimed and lauded as one of the finest movies of 2005. It is testament to the sheer genius of Aardman Animations that not even that little lot can capture the sheer majesty of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit
As is always the case with the infamous plasticine duo, the beauty is in the details. The nuances of Gromits facial expressions raise chuckles all by themselves, while the silky-smooth stop motion animation and the clever, witty script complete a slick and accomplished package.
But perhaps more than anything, this is a wildly entertaining movie which will be enjoyed and appreciated by the whole family. In an era where special effects and huge budgets dominate, its taken a long-in-gestation labour of love from a small British studio to once again show a brighter way forward. And whether you're hooked by its moments of brilliant ingenuity, its warm characters or simply its clever, laugh-out-loud humour, youre still likely to join the queue the next time the plasticine duo venture into the world of movies. An unmissable treat.--Simon Brew
