Aussie boy's thoughts
Farmageddon’s alien-related concept won’t attract as many viewers as 2015’s Shaun the Sheep-based movie did, but it’s definitely worth it. For very young children to even older-viewer fans of the TV show and the first film, there’s always an entertaining and satisfying story. However, it’s best to really appreciate the setting before you see this adventure around it.
Alike the previous film and the episodes on TV, there’s brilliant animation with clay-made characters and effects. Plus, Farmageddon continues to maintain the ability to give audiences an understandable story without any conversations that involve actual talking. It’s well-made and executed finely.
Unfortunately, there’s a fair lack of charm throughout this movie’s plot. It’s really great how the story-creators wanted to give us something different and refreshing, other than just repeating the previous film with a different design. The aliens idea is fun, amusing and delightful, but there could’ve been more ideas through it to spark it up, or there could’ve just been a completely different concept.
