Full Review Page

The entire time, I just felt the tension between Aardman and DreamWorks. I love Wallace and Gromit and could see the same kind of clever jokes and references I've come to expect, but then there is the incredibly lazy CGI that we see in every scene above ground. The opening sequence looks dreadful. The entire movie looks like garbage until we get "Flushed Away" and then for some reason they animate things better in the sewers. The story is fine, but played out and unoriginal. The voice acting is fine, but there aren't any stand-out performances. I did like how music was incorporated, but at times it felt too much like they just wanted a popular song to sell the soundtrack. I just want more of the Wallace and Gromit style of smart little jokes hidden in the environment or clever wordplay, but everything is kind of glossed with the DreamWorks style of prat falls and lazy gags. Give me more Shaun the Sheep and less Boss Baby.
