What’s up, I’m dos Santos, and this is Ulven Reviews: movies and series from all over the world and all eras. Today let’s talk about Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit as part of the Oscars Badge Series. The movie was released in 2005 and directed by Steve Box and Nick Park.
The inventor Wallace and his dog Gromit are running a pest control business during the days leading to a traditional festival of gigantic vegetables. Their method is to capture the rabbits, not hurting anyone of them.
Until one day, Wallace has the idea of using one of his inventions to manipulate the rabbits’ little brains and make them averse to vegetables. However, he ends up creating a Were-Rabbit that every night obliterates the gigantic vegetables being prepared for the festival, causing panic in the town.
I think that it is worth noticing that although I watched some of the Wallace & Gromit short films that preceded this feature-length one, I don’t remember shit, so watching The Curse of the Were-Rabbit felt like the first time.
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is a light-hearted and simple movie. The story is not particularly original, using various elements from well-known genres such as horror, but in a much more cheerful and humorous way. In this sense, the movie is almost like a soft satire.
It’s easy to watch and makes the time flies without us noticing it. There was only one moment I got a little bored, during a plane chase that I think dragged for too long. Besides that everything goes smoothly.
The characters are really great as well. Wallace is a contradiction, being so naive and foolish and at the same time a brilliant inventor. I think he is the one that brings the most laughs.
Then we also have Gromit, a loyal and bright dog who’s always saving Wallace’s skin. Even without talking, he’s very lovable.
Other characters contribute positively to the film, but I think these two are the ones that deserve more highlighting.
One thing that caught my attention right away was the animation. It was so amazing. I couldn’t stop noticing even small details in awe. Considering that it was all stop-motion, with everything handmade with such nuance, makes me admire the team involved in the making of this film even more.
To wrap everything up. The score is upbeat and bright, fitting perfectly with the tone of the film. It’s really remarkable to see how the music and the screen unite in such a coherent way. It’s really nice.
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit was a very pleasant and relaxing watch. It can make us laugh and have a moment of softness in life. And the animation took it a degree up for me. I’ll give Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit 8 Moons!
