If you are after an animation movie about chickens, then this is a classic! There is adventure, fun, romance, anticipation and even actor Mel Gibson who plays a Rooster named Rocky who claims to have 'flown' into the farm.
Tweedy's farm is the setting for Chicken Run, run by the evil Mr and Mrs Tweedy who are chicken farmers who decide to upgrade from selling chicken eggs to making chicken pies. Thinking of this film being over 18 years old and the chickens all made from clay and plastercine really says the skills used back then, I even think I read somewhere that the knitting that Babs has is actually real knitting created using toothpicks as needles.
One of the best elements to this film is that there are an array of different chicken personalities amongst the group of hens as you would have in any group of friends. Ginger is the main chicken of the film and from the beginning you are drawn to how courageous, compassionate and determined she is. Chickens in general can have distinct personalities and are known to be very chatty with one and other. Chicken Run is an animated glimpse in to chicken life with an adventurous twist.
