Flushed Away Audience Reviews

Stevecorp Don't listen to the negative reviews
Allison Davies The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
Jakoba True to its essence, the characters remain on the same line and manage to entertain the viewer, each highlighting their own distinctive qualities or touches.
Staci Frederick Blistering performances.
Daniel Dell Flushed Away isn't the WORST Aardman film I've seen. I don't know WHAT is. But it's really not my favorite out of the Aardman Animations. I just don't like the toilet humor, or some of the characters. Yes, the voice acting is good, and the animation is incredible, but personally, I don't think it would be a great idea to make a movie about a mouse who got flushed. I've seen films worse than this. It's not REALLY Aardman's worst production (*coughs* Chop Socky Chooks), but it's just not my cup of tea. If you liked it, good for you, but I just consider it a mixed bag. In my opinion, it was considered CLOSE to being Aardman's worst film, but not quite. Although it looks better than Chop Socky Chooks, I just couldn't feel like watching it anymore.
Rodrigo Amaro I must say that every time I heard about "Flushed Away" for some odd reason I kept thinking that it wasn't a much interesting animation and things like that. I was wrong and I underestimated the value of it. It's a very funny adventure with a excellent soundtrack and a great ensemble casting makes the excellent characters voices. Roddy (Hugh Jackman's voice) is an uptown rat who lives in a big penthouse apartment, very happily until some poor rat shows up and flushes him down the toilet and letting him totally lost in the sewers of London. While trying get back home he's helped by a female obstinate rat Rita (Kate Winslet's voice) who wants to save the lives of many other rats persecuted by evil frogs led by The Toad (Ian McKellen's voice) and his French relative (Jean Reno's voice).High-spirited, entertaining and with lots of good jokes and a few cultural references "Flushed Away" is a very simple film but in the whole body of work delivers much more than it is expected. Despite a tremendous big plot hole towards the ending (but I think kids won't notice that) the story is well structured, without any excessive moments. The soundtrack's use was very good and one of the most memorable tings here working with classics of Billy Idol, Christopher Cross "Sailing" (I laughed a lot when the song was used in a romantically moment that ended hilariously when Roddy and Rita were being chased by the villains on the boat) and many other songs; and the music composed by Harry Gregson-Williams (composer from the Shrek films) is quite good too. If you enjoyed "Chicken Run" and similar animations from Aardman's (this is their first completely computer-animated feature) this film is for you. It's very enjoyable and highly recommended. 10/10
Cinemibus This is a superb animated feature from the guys who brought us Chicken Run and Wallace and Gromit. It features an all-star cast, is devilishly funny and can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages. However, it did not do very well at the box office. Why? Well, for a variety of reasons. The main one, in my opinion, is that it was killed by Happy Feet, which in no way lived up to its spectacular ad campaign. Funny how this movie is, in a way, just the opposite; it had a lousy ad campaign but is in reality a hilarious and remarkably entertaining movie.Despite an all-star British cast, this movie has the rather unappealing premise of a pampered pet rat who somehow contrives to be flushed down the toilet into an incredible world of sewer rats and their underground city. Now, at first this seems to be a premise that has gross-out comedy built directly into it. What the ad campaign regrettably failed to explain is that that premise only sets up the real one. The real premise sets up a cracking adventure story that features a gallery of hysterically funny characters and situations. What really amazes me about this film, however, is how constantly it entertains. There was not a single moment during this film in which I was not being totally entertained by its antics. Any movie that fills out its mission statement that effectively is worthy of recognition. However, this movie never got it, neither financially nor, to a certain extent, critically. Some might be kept away by the premise, or maybe the all-British cast, or maybe even because there are other films(like Happy Feet) they would rather see. Well, I am here telling you not to miss out.
TheLittleSongbird Flushed Away is very entertaining. Sure, it isn't the best animation in the world, but there was a lot to enjoy. The animation in general is very good, but not as good as Ratatouille. The story was a little bit thin, and sometimes failed to engage. Most of the jokes were genuinely very funny, however it had a tendency to overshadow the story. The french frogs were also very funny, but my favourite were the singing slugs. They were so funny every time they appeared. The voice talents were fantastic, especially Ian Mckellan, a fine recovery after his mistake, Doogal. Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet also brought a lot of much needed wit to their rather thankless characters. Bill Nighy and Shane Richie also delighted in brief but entertaining roles. The Tom Jones song over the end credits was nice to hear too. All in all, a witty and highly entertaining film. 7.5/10 Bethany Cox
