    8 / 10
    A truly wonderful and funny movie that will definitely entertain adults more than it would children.
    One can only admire the amount of effort it took the creators of the movie to animate the plasticine characters.
    The video transfer is very good. The dark scenes are rendered beautifully and the plasticine characters all look great.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are used very nicely used throughout the movie.
    The actors all do a superb job in giving life to the various characters using their voices.
    The menus are still with music.
    The extras include a commentary, 2 behind the scenes featurettes and a read along.
    Bottom line - a highly enjoyable (thus recommended) movie and a fine disc, too.
