Product Description

Chicken Run ~ Chicken Run

Special Features

The kids should really love the extras on the DVD of this comedy hit. The DVD-ROM features two games, plenty of coloring pages, a lively story version of the movie, and enough accoutrements (screen savers, desktop icons, and more) to turn your computer into a chicken coop. For other fans, there's a concise documentary on the making of the film and another on the history of Aardman Animation. And when you feel the need, you can always press the screaming chicken panic button to relieve stress. --Doug Thomas

2 things to say here . This is a hilariously great and funny movie. Its even funnier as well , as some would say that this could be Mel's Gibson best voice over, ever. Knowing how Mel has turned out in his last years, at least we know he was once , very, very and yes, very ...funny indeed !

For adults and children alike

Cheers

Peter Lord and Nick Park's CHICKEN RUN (2000) is truly a film for all ages. Produced by Mel Gibson, it is about how a stray American rooster, Rocky (voiced by Gibson himself) comes to the aid of a group of chickens at the sinister Tweedy Chicken Farm, who are trying to escape before they can be made into pies. On its surface, this story would appear to be rather simplistic; however, it is witty, funny, entertaining, intelligent and interesting. In short, it is everything that most G-rated animated films aren't today. Peter Lord and Nick Park, co-creators of the popular British Claymation "Wallace and Gromit" series, have outdone themselves in crafting a feature film that is both visually stunning and extremely well-written.
CHICKEN RUN makes use of numerous film references, especially from THE GREAT ESCAPE (1963), STALAG 17 (1953) and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981). All are cleverly interwoven with the story. The vocal performances are excellent, especially from Julia Sawalha as Ginger (the hen leader), Jane Horrocks as Babs (Ginger's bubbleheaded best friend) and Miranda Richardson as the evil Mrs. Tweedy. If the names of the first two (and their voices) sound familiar to you, no doubt you'll recognize that they are Saffy and Bubble, respectively, from "Absolutely Fabulous"; arguably the greatest British comedy series of all time. As for the male voices in CHICKEN RUN: Tony Haygarth is hilarious as the dimwitted Mr. Tweedy, the always-great (and Mike Leigh favorite) Timothy Spall is the hapless Nick and, of course, Mel Gibson is funny and charming as Rocky 'The Flying Rooster'.

It has often been claimed that at the core, there are really only a tiny handful of stories. Stories that are told and retold endlessly across the generations with only cosmetic changes upon each retelling. Osiris becomes Jesus; Rama becomes Skywalker. A little while ago, in a review of The Smurfs, I made the point that if this is indeed the case, then the real job of the storyteller is to disguise that fact. To make us somehow fail to notice that we've heard it all before.

The Smurfs was... Well, pretty awful really. The tellers of that tale did an abysmal job of hiding the fact that they were telling a story we'd all heard many, many times before.

Chicken Run is better than The Smurfs. But not by enough. There's never even the tiniest bit of doubt as to the arc of character development, or where everyone is ultimately going to end up. All of which might be forgivable if the film as a whole had the charm and charisma of Aardman's other work. But it just doesn't. Even the fantastical machinery and gadgetry come across as frankly perfunctory.

On the plus side, Julia Sawalha does have a pretty sexy voice.

But that's hardly enough to carry the day.

Theo.

CHICKEN RUN is a delightful film, fun for both children and adults! The stop motion animation is brilliant and the characterizations and the voices that supplied them are superb! What is basically an animated poultrified GREAT ESCAPE comes across with laughter, touching sentimentality, and lots of wonderful vignettes. Julia Swahala and Jane Sherrocks (both from Absolutely Fabulous) are indeed absolutely fabulous in their roles. Sawahla's Ginger is the epitome of today's female action hero---brave, loyal, independent and a touch feisty! All of the hens are wonderful, and producers should be ashamed in not featuring them in the credits. Their names don't appear until the end and they go by so fast you can barely read it. These actors are wonderful and deserve more credit for the quality of this film. Its only "star", Mel Gibson, is dashingly heroic and fits Rocky to a tee. Tony Haygarth (so good in Frank Langella's Dracula) does great with Mr. Tweedy's role and Miranda Richardson as the evil Mrs. Tweedy is perfect. This film is lovingly made and has wonderful music, as well. Also, catch some references to other films, such as "Raiders of the Lost Ark" where the tumbling boulder is replaced by tumbling wingnuts, and catch Mrs. Tweedy's Cruella deville impression after she is bombed with gravy!
I loved this movie, it makes you feel good, and is excellent to boot! Don't miss out on this one!

Rocky, Ginger, Babs and The Colonel and friends, create an all too realistic picture of Battery Farms for fowl. Except for the frightening tactics of Mrs. and Mr. Tweedy...the scenes showing the small confined Hen Houses and the 'quota' system could be right out of a news item on Battery Farmed Egg products. Though the film goes for laughs for the most part, it does have its serious moments. Over all funny and entertaining.
