Early Man

Stone age and even later civilizations — still wild ancestors, but they were just like us. They also had too many relatives, and men fought for the woman he loves. They, too, loved the jewels, played leather ball and everyone wanted to be the first...

With all my adoration to cartoons, double admiration StopLoss animation and endless love clay — "Wild ancestors" does not give anything new: the characters in the good old style Studio Aardman (Wallace and Gromit) has incorporated in itself, monstrously fantastic story of the little Family, the Croods, antagonists of the adventures of Asterix and Obelix and the conflict level of Space Jam (this is where Jordan the bugs Bunny plays in basketball against alien invaders).

All this looks great, the fingerprints of the Creator on the clay give them some interesting texture, naturalness. Funny characters, jokes and action fun. But, after reviewing many movies and cartoons, the action on the screen to pause and you predict what happens.

I hope that the Studio Aardman will still be a lot of work, about which, after watching, you can say "And there was!", not adding "just like in".

Cartoon still suggest fans of the plasticine, football and English humor!

In the modern world of animation cartoons, like "Wild ancestors", — piece goods. The most the goods that appears terribly rare, but waiting income gives it any special charm. It is especially nice when the product comes straight from its Creator. True and genuine clay product. It is valuable on its own existence, with the most of the charm, but, to sadness, from too high expectations not be felt so juicy and delicious from what we expected.

"Wild ancestors" seemed on first glance to display history of the confrontation between two eras: a century stone and bronze century. It could be an interesting story about the misunderstanding of people of different ages, for some of which is alien to the new bronze technology, and for the second alien to the savage habits of their neighbors. Interesting, with the permission of tautology, historical story filled with depth and seasoned with good humor, in a clay frame — would again to build creations Aardman in the rank of the iconic and beloved by many as was his time with the "Escaping of the chicken coop" or the same cheese lovers Wallace and Gromit. To unfortunately, "Wild ancestors" give only the beginnings of similar depth, in the end, they find themselves in first place ribbon on football lies the banal and the familiar story of the power of team spirit and victory of good guys over bad. To pain a familiar story, where the outcome is known in the beginning, to surprise which the viewer would be difficult. However, a new creation from Aardman not leave disappointed.

The beauty of plasticine animation, of course, impresses again: in its own cute characters with even more cute animals (not to love doistoricheskogo wild boar — mystery). Among the usual computer animation Nick Park, remaining true to yourself, feels like a breath of fresh and clean air. Something unusual and catchy. And this wonderful clay thing Park puts well-known sports drama: here and the team of losers that will win in the end, there and workout that will play a role here and narcissistic tough opponents and a lot of other things that have seen a bunch of times. And this, perhaps, the main minus "Wild ancestors": on check they are quite banal story, does not offer anything new, and effective beat the usual moves, missing out on a great opportunity to show the clash of the ages, Park decides to transfer the modern trends as life and football-related things on the prehistoric way, leaving them same recognizable. But fail to deny that all works. The tape is filled with light and effective humor, making fun of, for example, serious things in the face of corruption and lust for money, not forget the humor is more straightforward, plenty of starting to fool around with stones, rabbits and massage. A similar dear tomfoolery not can not to bribe, let there and there are scenes of humor is more vulgar that looks like something is not strongly fit this atmosphere. But the end result being that "Wild ancestors" work like a funny and enjoyable cartoon for all and uplifting sports tape, where to empathize with the main ridiculous savages Willy-nilly get (the wild boar exactly), and in the final match the mountain of puns remains only rooting for the team of the stone age, languishing in the expectation of a decisive goal.

"Early Man" — this sweet, soulful and painfully simple story, for which is not to spend boring time of the screen. Undoubtedly, it is a pity that Park not have decided to fill their new piece the creation of something more, but you is it to blame, because there are good, easy and fun tape, causing a sincere smile and laugh. Well and engaging the animation will not go away. Of course, there a matter of taste: some protruding teeth and coarse noses seem repulsive, but those who will like, and football fans, not must be extremely disappointed with the new creation of the famous Studio. New piece goods, which need to be happy, and so if it is possible for viewing good time, then even the most banal story will cause only the most loyal and pleasant feeling.

Nick Park and Aardman Studios, the British — one of the last strongholds of the real hard workers and sincere creativity in the world of animation. All case in that the Studio uses the technique of plasticine animation, with absolutely manually. Computer graphics is used very very rare.

We all see the work of this great Studio: "Escape from chicken coop", a series about Wallace and Gromit," Shaun the Sheep". These projects have long won the love of viewers for the world, and here, on the Russian screens with late two months, released a new cartoon — "Wild ancestors" or"Primitive people" in the original. In General, the translation of the name worthy.

A film about the tribe of savages of the stone age, which is quite brazenly trying to enslave representatives of the century bronze. Yes, in the cartoon dopustimo hard anachronisms, it is only the benefit is. But the savages find a compromise in the form of... a Football that is very popular with bronze tribe and himself a great lover of this metal Lord of Midges. Taschemta on the heroes train and otherwise prepare for the final match with an incredibly strong enemy team.

"Wild ancestors", of course, for children first. The cartoon gives a simple morality about teamwork, friendship values and condemns greed. A great reason to reduce the child to session, yeah and to laugh. The satirical part is good, as and Aardman Studios. Great banter all that connected with the nogomyach.

To watch definitely.
