      The Pirate T The truth is that although it does not surpass the first film, it is very good, it manages to work on its own, a shame that it is very underrated. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review Johana B Both Chicken Run movies are excellent. The Dawn of the Nugget is undoubtedly a worthy sequel to a worthy film. The story is excellent and does not leave behind the essence of the first. This film tries new and refreshing things. Bring brighter colors and new characters. Chicken Run 2: Dawn of the Nugget is a film with great animation and a big delicious imagination. Highly recommended and enjoyable. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Adnan S Might be biased but the film was great! Not as great as the 1st probably a landslide but still was chrming enough to entertain me for 1hr 42minutes. I wish they bringed back the old voice actors and did better with marketing. In fact WHY DID THEY INTRODUCE MS.TWEEDY IN THE TRAILER Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review haii e this is the next aardman cinematic masterpiece! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/28/24 Full Review Daniel W To be honest, I have mixed feelings about this movie. It pleased me in some areas and disappointed me in others. POV: Pros: This movie did make me laugh at several parts and it contained some creative elements. I liked that the Chickens humorously infiltrate a heavily guarded farm that looks more like a military facility. Mission Impossible vibes at every turn. The writers brought back the classic villain Mellissa Tweedy, who was the antagonist in the first movie. I liked that the writers also introduced a new villain, Dr. Fry, who makes the film seem fresh and new. Believe it or not, the entire movie is stop-motion made, which brings a whole new level of appreciation for the work put in to make the movie. Stunning as always. Cons: Unfortunately, even with some good elements, there were several things in this movie that were disappointing. The character development of Rocky and Ginger's daughter, Molly, was quite poor. I wanted to like her character, but the writers gave her no likable or relatable qualities. Additionally, the dialogue between Molly and her parents was dull and flat, and almost seemed robotic. For the first part of the movie, the film seemed babyish and I honestly wanted to turn it off at several parts. I decided instead to continue watching because this was a long-anticipated second to the first Chicken Run movie. As the movie progressed it got more interesting and the quality of the jokes improved, however, there were several occasions when I cringed because of the simply poor writing. Final verdict: While I was impressed with some parts of the movie, I was disappointed at the quality of the writing at times. Then again, one can't expect much from movies these days, so in that case this film was on the better side. Three stars. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Alec B It isn't terrible but I am not entirely sure why this exists. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) It’s pleasingly daft, very British and not exactly memorable. Dec 29, 2023 Full Review Donald Clarke Irish Times There are some fine new villains. The voice work rumbles with buttered-crumpet charm. Middle-ranking Aardman is better than almost anyone else on top form. Rated: 3/5 Dec 23, 2023 Full Review Jonathan Romney Financial Times Briskly cheerful, but lacking the sharp deadpan wit that made Aardman famous, this episode is a warmed-over broiler that offers only paltry pleasures. Rated: 2/5 Dec 18, 2023 Full Review Amber Wilkinson Eye for Film The action element of the film has the enjoyable verve of the original, particularly when the mechanics of the nugget-maker are involved, but the lack of a tight focus on characters in one place makes the emotional heart of the matter more diffuse. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 30, 2024 Full Review Jack Bottomley Starburst [Dawn of the Nugget] does repeat some old hits, but it is a wacky, wild and ever so slightly scary follow-up, that has laughs and tail feather shaking delights over a rather pro-vegan story of trauma, freedom and family. Rated: 4/5 Jan 10, 2024 Full Review Mel Valentin That Shelf The rumours of Aardman’s demise — the animation studio, not anyone with that surname — have been somewhat exaggerated.
