    I watched this today with my four year old son. To say that this film entertained us both is an understatement. We were captivated throughout.

    The simplicity of the thing is key, the total dedication to the craft involved is paramount and the innocence it conveys is magical.

    It is a truly inventive film in how it finds its humour and relates its story without dialogue.

    I asked my son on the bus ride home what he thought about the film. He loved it and when I asked him what he thought it was all about he replied with, after giving it some considerable thought,: 'Things are better if you know who you are.'

    I hope I'll be as smart as he is one day.

    Watch this with your kid or if you ever were one.

    gorgeously animated and consists of wall-to-wall physical comedy setpieces arguing against the dehumanizing monotony of labor. quite easily include this alongside Rango and Kubo as the best animated movies of the 2010s.

    Man's second best friend is Sheep?

    The story is about Shaun the main character decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.

    I know these a lot of people that may not seen the TV series of Shaun the Sheep and here's my quick opinion on the TV series. I liked the show, I thought the animation was pretty good I mean stop motion never get's old well to me it doesn't. The show had a good sense of humor to it and the character's without talking makes them even more enjoyable to watch. Now we got the movie and to my surprise this is actually a enjoyable movie and a great one as well.

    The animation once again looks well detailed and great I mean just like I said before about stop motion animation never getting old and still looks great even today. Nice work to the people who did the animation for the movie, you made a good looking movie.

    The character's in the movie are the same in the TV series and I'm saying that in a positive way because them not saying anything only sheep noises and you also got a dog that don't talk (Thank the lord for that) but anywhere they dialogue are them talking in their own animal langue and it's still interesting to see them interacting with each other like that, and that takes talent for me to be more interested with character's that are not human or don't talk human.

    The whole movie is trying to get the farmer home just because he got knocked out by a solid object and falls into caravan it falls into town and all of the sheep and the pet dog from the farm have to go out and search for him, that's whole the movie right there and it's short and to my surprise it flowed very well not like other movies that are short and the story line is too basic.

    If I have to name problems from the movie these only some like: The villain of the movie just felt like your basic, cliche, not that interesting villain with a poor character ark that every time his on I felt it would be a lot better if he wasn't there at all. And that's really it for problems.

    Overall Shaun the Sheep: The Movie is a good family movie with clever and well thought out jokes that flow extremely well even for a kids movie. Great character's, outstanding animation, funny humor and a good stand alone movie that's worth seeing if you have seen the show, if you have not please watch the show first to get to know everyone and then watch the movie.

    Hilarious. Touching. Heartfelt. Delightful.

    Shaun and his sheep friends organize a daring coup in order to get rid of the farmer who takes care of them, but soon they realize that they needed him around more than they realized. Shenanigans ensue when the farmer loses his memory and becomes a famous hairstylist and the sheep encounter an animal abductor who thinks he's James Bond (when really he’s Blofeld). The story eventually comes together as a tale of family and friendship all the more lovable because of the way it shows folks who used to be enemies coming together and standing up for each other. A truly loving portrait of family and friendship.

    Completely lacking in pretense despite the incredible accomplishment of creating a silent film without drawing attention to it (only a very few moments "feel" the absence of dialogue). Strong characterization despite this lack of dialogue, particularly in the leads (Shaun, the dog, and the farmer), but almost the entire flock becomes easily identifiable by the end. Setup and payoff for every joke and story beat is just phenomenal (the movie creates its own in-jokes in under 90 minutes). This might sound like really basic stuff, but the fact that it's done more competently than in movies with words is just unimaginable (i.e. if the first half of WALL-E were turned into a feature). A modern study in visual storytelling.

    Shaun the Sheep Movie may be designed for children, but its message is timeless and its craft shows a rare talent and attention to detail that can be enjoyed by all ages. Maybe not Aardman's best, but a notable animated feature for the whole family.
