It's boring! Whenever sheep Shaun and his friends on the Mossy Bottom Farm have found a way to pass the time, court dog Bitzer immediately puts an end to the fun with new prohibitions. But just when Shaun wants to give up in frustration, an unexpected visit comes to the farm: The alien girl LU-LA has crashed with her spaceship near the farm. With her skills she brings a lot of new possibilities to play tricks and annoy Bitzer. But the alien girl also needs help. She's desperate to get home before Secret Service can catch her. Of course Shaun and his friends are always happy to help out…
Almost twenty-five years ago the lovable kneading sheep Shaun first appeared in the wonderful "Wallace & Gromit" short film "Unter Schafen" and immediately captured the hearts of the audience. Soon there were Shaun figures, Shaun backpacks and numerous other merchandising. The sheep became so popular that the "Wallace & Gromit"-makers made him the hero of his own TV series from 2007. There are now 130 episodes, each lasting seven minutes, which are an absolute cult not only for children. After the great success of the first cinema adventure, now with "Shaun the Sheep - The Film: Ufo-Alarm" the second feature film comes into our cinemas.
The concept still works very well for the second time in feature length, even if the whole thing doesn't seem quite as surprising and charming as it did for the first feature film. But the mixture of child-friendly slapstick and subversive humour, many allusions to cinema and TV classics as well as lovable characters makes this kneading adventure a great pleasure for young and old. The humor is often simple, but never really silly, the movie has pacing without losing its charm in too much action-hecticness. And it's a story full of heart and warmth that's never kitschy. And the film manages all this without any dialogues at all, but only with animal sounds and incomprehensible buzzing of the people.
Not quite as brilliant as its predecessor is "Shaun the Sheep - The Film: Ufo-Alarm" but still more than successful in every respect. Anyone who liked the TV series or the "Wallace & Gromit" short films will also love this meääääga-guten film. A timeless beautiful fun for every age and therefore deserves: Absolutely worth seeing!
