Plot- In a city of anthropomorphic animals, a rookie bunny cop and a cynical con artist fox must work together to uncover a conspiracy.

Review- Just because a film has gotten rave reviews across the pond doesn’t mean i’m going to give it 5 stars.

And so what if its in IMDB’s top 250, so was Snakes in a Plane for a short time. (Don’t judge us, it was a different time.)

No, what makes this an amazing time is the sheer amount of time, effort and ingenuity that has gone into this.

Seriously. Not only is this pretty much the only original big-budget film that’s due out this year, its funny, adventurous, exciting, touching and has an incredibly timely moral. The film follows a rookie bunny cop (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) who teams up with a smooth-talking fox (voiced by Jason Bateman) in order to solve a rash of kidnappings.

What follows is a slightly deeper film than you would normally expect for this genre and at times is almost ‘babys first film-noir’ whilst moving fast enough to ensure that the darker moments shouldn’t upset any of younger viewers.

I came out elated, excited, desperate for a sequel/tv series and with one burning question

What exactly do the predators eat in this city?

No, seriously, in this world where all of the different species (all with their own customized living are which makes for some amazing visual gags and moments, are all sentient, what exactly do the predators eat? Have they all gone vegetarian? Do they eat reptiles and fish?

Anybody?

I’m just going to have to see it again then.

My Score- SEE IT NOW
