Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: At least there's director Nick Park's playful Silly Putty visual imagination to take your mind off just how thin the story is. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Feb 16, 2018

Fresh: If just hearing animator Nick Park's name doesn't bring an anticipatory smile to your face, watching a few minutes of the thoroughly amusing "Early Man" will do the trick. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Feb 15, 2018

Rotten: Mostly, "Early Man" plays like an overstuffed episode of "The Flintstones," riffing on caveman accessories, as well as soccer fandom and hooliganism. – Brian Lowry,, Feb 16, 2018

Fresh: Among its abundant delights, Early Man doubles as Park's sly statement about his own process, which may seem exceedingly crude and outdated, but has the warmth and personality of a homemade, hand-crafted production. – Ella Taylor, NPR, Feb 15, 2018

Funny and well done but still meh

The movie is great and the voice acting is amazing and the crazy thing is that it’s stop motion. But in my opinion it could have been better. I don’t think it’s as good as there other movies.

Adorable Sports Movie!

In classic Aardman charm Early Man is a story about how cave people invented soccer and learn how to play for their literal "home" team to save their land from the greedy technologically advance Bronze Agers.
