Synopsis 4 stars out of 5 -- [W]ith Aardman’s form of painstakingly hand-crafted stop-motion animation, which is positively prehistoric compared to the flashier, computer-made family films that now dominate the box office....Its straightforward storytelling and gentle humour still work a treat.3 stars out of 5 -- EARLY MAN zips along and has plenty of laughs...[A]n endearingly old-school comedy that speculates on the origins of soccer and how a caveman named Dug captained the most exciting match in all of pre-history.[EARLY MAN] is about as warming, homey and distinctly British as a mug of hot, sweet, milky tea on a rainy day.[The animation] remains delightful in its blend of lavishness and hobby-ishness, with stop-motion plasticine characters smudged in fingerprints and lint. -- Grade: B-3 stars out of 4 -- What makes EARLY MAN enjoyable is the way Park and his writers detail the heroes' good-natured oafishness and the bad guys' snooty arrogance and embellish primordial cliches with 'Flintstones'-style design touches...If just hearing animator Nick Park's name doesn't bring an anticipatory smile to your face, watching a few minutes of the thoroughly amusing EARLY MAN will do the trick.The animation is foolproof in its combination of ingenuity and obviousness...[I]’s pretty charming, the kind of kids movie that finds the right mix of slapstick humor and intelligent storytelling to keep everyone in the audience happy.Featuring an impressive voice cast, a clever script, an abundance of pig puns and a duck the size of a T. Rex....Supremely quirky and earnestly heartwarming...In this stop-motion animated comedy set in prehistoric times, a tribe of primitive hunters are displaced from their homes by emissaries from a distant empire that has mastered bronze-making. However, a tribesman named Dug (voice of Eddie Redmayne) tries to win his home back by challenging the invaders to a game of soccer. Directed by Nick Park, best known as the creator of the beloved animated duo Wallace and Gromit. Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, and Richard Ayoade also lend their voices.
