For those who may not be familiar, Shaun the sheep is the small mischievous character that first appeared in Wallace and Gromit’s ‘A close Shave.  Since then he has become more and more popular, scoring his first solo motion picture five or so years ago.  This film picks up roughly where that left off.  Shaun is stuck on his farm, not allowed to have any fun.  Until he finds a lost alien hiding in his shed.  Then he takes it upon himself to help the adorable ‘Lu Laa’ to find her way home. 

This film was everything we have come to expect from Aardman, the masters of stop motion animation.  There is very little to hate about it.  Lu Laa is almost sickeningly adorable, with her brightly coloured appearance, penchant for mimicking the notices she hears and lets not forget that adorable teddy-bear.

This movie is very much geared towards kids.  It is essentially a silent movie, with little to no actual spoken words, so that makes it perfect for kids of all ages as there is nothing in it that will go over their heads.  And we were in a screen packed with the target audience (kids under the age of 7) and they were loving it!  So a big hut there.  And for the adults, don’t worry, there is plenty for us too, Especially if you are a sci-Fi fan.  There are countless Sci-Fi movie easter eggs here.  Some we spotted were ‘X-Files’ ‘2001: A space odyssey’ ‘ET’ ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Aliens’. So they have thought of the parents too.

This is a definite must see for parents with very small kids. A great movie if you have a free afternoon, like we did.
