Pint-sized Dug (Redmayne) isn't really cut out to be a caveman. But when disaster strikes and his tribe is driven from its homeland by the mighty Bronze Age, it's Dug, the most indept of the tribe, who proves he's got what it takes and leads them to victory. Set at the dawn of time, when dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of how one plucky caveman sets off to unite his tribe against a mighty enemy and saves the day.Hide

The Press Reviews

  • Sadly, tragically, Early Man is just not very good. Full Review

  • An often amusing reimagining of Bronze Age history that, while it doesn't quite match the best of Aardman, is still solid family entertainment. Full Review

  • It seems a strange thing to say about a film featuring a giant man-eating mallard, but a bit more eccentricity wouldn't have gone amiss. Full Review

  • Early Man does little to move things on, in evolutionary terms, but - for younger viewers especially - its straightforward storytelling and gentle humour still work a treat. Full Review

  • Early Man is as charming as they come, bursting with the kind of daffy humor and off-kilter characters that have earned the company a worldwide following. Full Review

  • Early Man, the latest animated feature from the Aardman studio's star director Nick Park, is about as warming, homey and distinctly British as a mug of hot, sweet, milky tea on a rainy day. Full Review

  • The marketable Aardman spark of madcap inventiveness is slightly diluted here. Still, it's a very likeable film which should delight younger audiences. Full Review
