About the Movie
The creators of Wallace & Gromit bring you an exciting and original story about a group of chickens determined to fly the coop–even if they can’t fly! It’s hardly poultry in motion when Rocky (Mel Gibson) attempts to teach Ginger and her feathered friends to fly…but, with teamwork, determination and a little bit o’ cluck, the fearless flock plots one last attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Exactly the picker-upper this macho-movie summer needs.
Fresh: Chicken Run boasts the most delicious collection of desperately funny Brits since The Full Monty. Poultry has never been so stuffed with personality.
Fresh: Even without Wallace and Gromit, most of the trademark joys are here: the compound of squashy creatures and heavy machinery, the wide, open-ended rictus of a toothy smile, and the great Parkian gulp.
Fresh: Most of the time Chicken Run entertains, instructs, involves and enchants.
This was one of my favourite movies as a kid, and as a 22-year-old, I can proudly call this my favourite movie! My favourite aspect of the movie is the epic soundtrack. "Building the Crate" is one of my go-to workout songs. The British humour and some of the characters (especially Fowler) are hard to understand at first, but the subs help tons! I also enjoyed the portrayal of the romance between the two main characters. Overall, the humour, the chickens' fight for freedom, and just about everything else in this movie totally make it worth watching!
It so good
It Rocks Because Mel Gibson’s In It!
This is great movie, I’m glad that Dreamworks made more of a Claymation movie. There’s one thing that made this movie even better, Mel Gibson as the voice of Rocky. Mel Gibson also voiced John Smith in Disney’s Pocahontas. From the creators of Wallace and Gromit brings you the excitement of Chicken Run!
