Since the introduction of Wallace and Gromit, a cooky pair of claymation characters from Aardman Entertainment, we can't help but enjoy the wild and wacky adventures they've put out over the years. From going to the moon to see if it's made out of cheese to stopping a penguin from stealing a precious diamond, they gave us plenty. But, one particular adventure, A Close Shave, brought about a little character named Shaun the Sheep. And it was after he helped Wallace and Gromit expose a conspiracy to turn sheep into dog food that got him his own show proper, and moved him from Wallace's messy lab to the comforts of a farm he can call his own. Well, for the most part.
Now, Shaun is back for another and wild adventure that puts him and all the sheep straight into the middle of the city as they're trying to find their farmer, whom they accidentally made amnesiac and landed him in the middle of the city in the first place, but the city is no place for a flock of sheep, especially considering one of them is a curious little baby, one's a concerned mother, and a third devours everything they can eat.
Surely Aardman's claymation films still have the same look and feeling as the old Wallace and Gromit adventures of old, because it still feels magical to watch it unfold. I didn't spot those two make a cameo while watching the film, but regardless, both characters weren't needed, as Shaun and his flock, along with the farmer's dog Blitzer, carry the story all by themselves, not to mention that crazy farmer.
I will warn that there isn't much dialogue, namely because its mostly focusing on the animals and not the people. Think of it as like the old LEGO games where the characters mimed out everything with grunts, groans, and movements. But that makes it quite funny, because the talking animals gig only works for Disney, not Aardman. If anything, Gromit has taught us that it's better to be silent and be funny than to talk and be annoying.
So, if you want a wool full of fun, I'd pick up a Shaun the Sheep Movie today. You'll be in the barnyard for certain.
