Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Valiant calls his instructor "Sir". In fact the instructor has the Rank of Flight Sergeant. You wouldn't call an NCO "Sir". You address him by his Rank (in this case Flight or Flight Sergeant).See more »

Good effort, nice quirky animation, 20 March 2005
Author: matt_clarke1981 from United Kingdom

Valiant is a fair effort at an animated film. Without the budget of an American movie this British movie does well. It is based on the role pigeons played in WWII. The animations are delightful, the voice cast is talented for a change. Ricky Gervais does a very amusing quite lengthy turn, as ewan mcgregors buddy. Though perhaps the animations aren't as expansive as others like finding nemo, the humour is still apparent. This movie could have been longer, you do feel a bit short changed. Its nice to see a British animated movie with its own unique quirks, I feel this film will be shown repeatedly as a Christmas treat film on TV. There are funny moments and this movie is probably more for kids.
