Early Man is bought to you by Ardman Animations and the BFI and is the funniest film I have seen so far this year.*
We follow Dug the caveman and the tribe that he belongs to as they defend their land from the bronze age invaders in the only way that they don’t know how. Football. It appears that when the asteroid collided with earth in the big bang, a too hot to touch, round shaped piece was used by their cavemen ancestors to kick about.
The characters are bought to life by the wonderful voices of Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall. Rob Brydon, Mark Williams and the wonderful Miriam Margolyes to name a few.
Thoroughly enjoyed this film and came out of the cinema grinning like a Cheshire cat! Would definitely watch this again such is the greatness of the film.
* This will probably change after seeing Deadpool 2!!
This year I am going to be rating each film but, instead of using a traditional “out of 5” mark, I will be using an “out of Jason Stathams”. With the best being 5 Jason Stathams and the worst only 1 Jason Statham.
