Storyline

In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we'll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds - or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to. Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader (Trainwreck, Inside Out), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids, Sisters), and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), as well as Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Sisters), ... Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Watch the birdy!
14 May 2016 | by philhesmoSee all my reviews

I recently saw the film with my wife and two children (7 and 9) and we all really enjoyed it. The story has enough visual gags and toilet humour to keep most children amused (as well as a few adults too) and uses it's gaming app heritage to good effect within the very simple story line. All the Angry Bird characters make an appearance but with the focus on Red, Chuck and Bomb.

The quality of the animation is excellent and complimented to good effect with the actors voices, making it both fun to watch and listen to. Some of the slapstick humour reminded me of the old Looney tunes cartoons, particularly when the birds are propelled into battle against the pigs, while many of the visual jokes in the background are so quick and subtle, blink and you'll miss them.

If you and your kids liked the movie Surfs up, then you will probably like this one, however you may see similarities in some of the characters - Mighty Eagle is just a variation on the Big Z character from Surfs up.

A film based on a gaming app isn't going to be deep and meaningful but if you just want feel-good family entertainment and a good laugh, then you won't go far wrong with The Angry Birds Movie.
