Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas full movie review - Weaker Aardman effort
"Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas" is a British animated short film that premiered roughly 2 weeks ago on television.
"Shaun the Sheep" is a contender for "Best Animated Feature" at the Oscars this year, or probably only for the nomination, but this still this makes it a great year for Aardman as the film has also received mostly positive reviews. So here is a little add-on for the holidays 2015. Sadly, I must say that the quality from this short film does not get me interested in watching the full feature movie. First of all, I don't mind the animation. The sheep look good as always and the llamas sure do as well. My problem was really more with the story and the comedy or lack there of. The makers here certainly got mixed up "loud" with "funny". A very noisy little movie, but sadly it never really delivers on a comedic level for me here. Quite a pity as I liked the characters here for sure. And I actually really liked some of the earlier "Shaun the Sheep" television stuff from years ago. This now addition to the franchise is certainly not on par. Most definitely not the last film on one of the world's most famous sheep. I really hope they will step things up in the future again. Not recommended.
