A Town Called Panic (2009) is a French film that was created with toys. The main characters are Cowboy, Indian, and Horse. Thinking that it would be a Western themed movie, I was initially reluctant to watch it. I was pleasantly surprised. The characters are somewhat like a family. The talking horse plays a father figure to Cowboy and Indian, who are like two hyperactive children.
In the beginning of the film, Cowboy and Indian realize that they have forgotten Horse's birthday. They scramble to think of a gift and end up deciding to build him a barbeque. The two accidently order 50 million bricks from the internet and it leads a series of strange events.
This movie was not just entertaining, it also was strangely satisfying. It wasn't like watching Robot Chicken. I felt like was actually playing with the toys. The subtitles and frantic characters may turn off some viewers though.
