Soccer – or football, if you prefer – was first played in 1863, right?

Pah, what would Wikipedia know? Aardman set the story straight – it was invented and played by cavemen! When young Dug (Eddie Redmayne) makes a wager with imperious imbecile Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston), it’s Stone vs. Bronze in a soccer match for the Ages. Aardman are master storytellers with a flair for puns, Monty Python-esque madness, nods to classic commentary, and dad jokes you can’t help but giggle (or at least groan) at. Early Man has all of the above. The stop-motion animation delights, the underdog story pulls the right strings, and kids and adults alike will have a ball.
