A Town Called Panic review

Go on a crazy adventure with these fantastic figurines

Here’s a toy story that’s nothing like Toy Story.

This brilliantly bonkers Belgian stop-motion animation, a big-screen extension of a cult TV show, is so defiantly lo-fi that its squabbling stars Cowboy and Indian are kids’ plastic play figurines.

But Cravendale ad animators Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar infuse their adventures with a shouty appeal and winning absurdity that gives chasing mutants to the centre of the earth its own zany logic.

Studded with surreal and unexpectedly tender touches (kamikaze cows, an elegantly lovestruck horse), this is plastic and fantastic.
