A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon: Will Becher and Richard Phelan’s animated film is a charming example of how a story can be told well without meaningful dialogue. It falls on the lightweight side, but that does not reduce its entertainment value. The main characters all have clear traits, motivations, and act accordingly. The claymation technique is lovely to watch and enhances the wholesome, naïve spirit of the story. The characters are all well-designed and distinctive. The sound landscape is incredibly rich, and the film has a good number of sonic jokes to complement the (also many) visual jokes; all in all, there is always a lot going on. Both composer’s Tom Howe original score and other music are used to great effect.
