Fantastic Mr Fox

I meant to do this for quite some time but was tied up with marking assignments and exams. Finally I have some free time to do this review. Fantastic Mr Fox is a fantastic movie.

This song will haunt you.

Its from a book

Mr Fox used to make a living by stealing chickens, ducks and squabs. But an after an incident regarding a trap, his pregnant wife made him promise to look for another job (if they survived).

Two years later (they did survive), My Fox works as a writer in a newspaper.

His kid Ash.

All the trouble starts when Mr fox wants to buy a new house, tree actually.

Kylie, soon to be his best friend.

His friend and lawyer, Badger tried to persuade Mr Fox against buying the tree, because it neighbors Boggis, Bunce and Beans.

Boggis who rears chicken.

Bunce who rears goose

Beans makes apple cider.

The cuss you are...

In the meantime, cousin Kristofferson arrives, and he is better than Ash in everything he does.

In the meanwhile, My Fox with the help of Kylie, raided Boggis, Bunce and Beans farm.

Rat, who works at Beans security

In retaliation, Boggis, Bunce and Beans ambushed Mr Fox, shooting off his tail in the process.

Mr Fox and his family escaped by digging, which is how he escaped the trap 2 years ago.

Boggis, Bunce and Beans keep digging to find Mr. Fox.

Beans uses Mr Fox's tail as a tie.

Soon Mr Fox came across all the other animals that escaped and led them to raid Boggis, Bunce and Beans storage.

Which, prompt Boggi, Bunce and Beans to flood them with apple cider to flush them out.

In the meanwhile, Ash and Kristofferson tried to get back Mr. Fox's tail but Kristofferson was captured.

Mr Fox wanted to give himself up as a trade for Kristofferson, but an attack by Rat on his family changed the plan.

A dyring Rat told them where Kristofferson was being held

The hostage exchange, involving burning pinecones.

Mr Fox and Kylie (plus Ash) raced to save Kristofferson.

In the end, they managed to save Kristofferson, they are still trapped underground, but My Fox found a route to Boggis, Bunce and Beans supermarket.
