Ilan Preskovsky quote iconSo, yes, maybe I just don't like the film because I am rather ambivalent towards Aardman and Nick Park but even fans of Wallace and Gromit or Shaun the Sheep must surely recognize that this is very, very far from the esteemed production house's best work.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconTo be clear, it’s anything but awful and there are enough amusing moments to prevent one from ever being bored. But on the evolutionary scale of what Aardman has created over the decades, this one’s a step in the wrong direction.

Tomatometer quote iconEarly Man isn’t quite as evolved as Aardman’s best work, but still retains the unique visuals and sweet humor that have made the studio a favorite among animation enthusiasts.
