Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were Rabbit
Director: Nick Park, Steve Box
Cast: Peter Sallis, Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter, Nicholas Smith

The second full length animation from the Aardman studios offers a delightful mix of visual gags and hilarious oneliners, although the whole is not quite as disarming as Chicken Run. Wallace and Gromit are after a mysterious rodent who is wreaking havoc on the eve of the giant vegetable competition. The story kicks off brilliantly, then loses some momentum midway through only to make amends with a breathtaking finale.
