Bringing you honest reviews of recent releases
When Shaun 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.

Well, what can I say. Shaun The Sheep Movie is everything you’d expect from a fast-paced, colourful animation. Loud noises, calamity mishaps, big characters and a simple plot. This was 84 minutes of total escapism from the real world. And as such, I sat staring at the screen in a sort of daze. Want a movie that you don’t have to focus on in order to absorb the whole story? This is it. One of those random beauties you can leave running as it washes over your head. I have a feeling this would be perfect for a hangover day – it’s that simple.
Whilst the movie lacks slightly in entertainment, it makes up for it by providing a screen packed full of characters and situations. But then I am an adult – I will have a different view on this to children.
Take the kids to see this one, they’ll bloody love it.
