Not quite as innocent at it seems

I tried watching this with our 5 year old. I am sure my review would be different had I watched it on my own and reviewed it through my eyes only. There is a funny story with a lot of neat details (that go by really quickly and can be easily missed). However, the llamas become terrifying and stalk the others in a way that is too suspenseful and frightening for a young child. We turned it off as the lesson was lost for us before it became too clear to our daughter as she was scared.

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This special Shaun the Sheep story offers the same fun, inspired adventures that the series is known for. As usual, the lack of spoken dialogue and physical comedy help underscore the slapstick humor.

It's fun and colorful; the farm is rendered in bold, beautiful shades of green, and the fair's dessert contest is a sight to behold, as is the sheep crew's creative solution to taming the llamas. The out-of-control llama bullies can get pretty mean as they rampage across the farm, and there are a few anxiety-provoking moments that may be a bit much for younger children. But overall, fans of the original series will certainly find Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas a fun treat for the whole family.
