It's time for the annual Giant Vegetable Fete, and it's vitally important that the extra large carrots are protected - so Wallace and Gromit are on duty keeping hungry bunnies out of the way without harming them. Everything seems under control until the appearance of the dreaded Were-Rabbit. Will Wallace's inventions and Gromit's good sense save the day? This is the first Wallace and Gromit adventure at full movie length, but it's every bit as good as the earlier, shorter ones.

    Run for your leaves! Hide your vegetables! There's a Were-Rabbit on the loose!


    The Story

    The story is about Britain's favourite claymation duo trying to hypnotise the towns rabbits to stop the eating everyone's vegetables. But as usual with any invention in film history, the rabbit hypnotiser malfunctions and creates the infamous were-rabbit.

    The story takes a while to get going and some of the plot-twists are predictable. But the story is very well done and is very entertaining in it's humour.

    There is a debate amongst Wallace and Gromit fans that wonder if this film would of been better as a half an hour short than a feature-length film. The answer to that is in some ways yes, but in others, no.

    Some of the plot-points are forgotten about by the end of the film, leaving them unresolved by the end of the film. But the film had more time to develop it's plot than the shorts ever did. It really is a double edged carrot!

    I don't know if I am the only one who notices this, but it seems that ever since 'a close shave', Wallace has a love interest. I am not against love stories if they are done write, but the romance in this film feels a bit forced. But it isn't nearly as bad as the romance in 'a matter of loaf and death'!


    The Characters

    We have the duo that have not changed since their debut or since. We don't really learn anything about them other than what we already know.

    The new characters are pretty bland. Especially the villain. He is the most generic villain this film could of had and most of the jokes involving him are not funny.

    The love interest seems interesting at first, but sadly, becomes the damsel in distress that we have seen many times before in other films. Meanwhile, the other characters (which seem more interesting than the ones we got) get no character development whatsoever.


    The Animation/Special Effects

    The animation (not surprisingly) is amazing. The transformation of the were-rabbit is very well done and is one of the best transformations I have seen in clay animation.

    They also use the animation to have subtle jokes hidden in the film such as a box with a sign saying 'may contain nuts' which may go over younger viewer's heads.


    Final Thoughts

    Even though this is the biggest adventure that the duo have been in, it certainly isn't the most grand they have had. I don't see many people talk about this film very much and it is no wonder that they don't remember.

    Even though that the film has a lot to offer, it doesn't have enough substance to chew on when watching it.

    If you like clay animation or Wallace and Gromit, I say give this film a go. But to others, this may be nothing to you but a bowl of Brussel sprouts.


    The Story 4/5
    The Characters 1/5
    The Animation/Special Effects 5/5

    Overall 3/5
