Review

Our Score
In this animated adventure based on the popular smartphone game, Jason Sudeikis provides the voice of an irritable bird named Red, the only angry bird on an island of happy flightless creatures, who has to call on all his reserves of rage to save his home. The game wasn't what you'd call complex, so it's understandable that the movie iteration doesn't concern itself with too much plot. There's a basic "invasion of the pigs" storyline, but most of the action is slapstick riffing between the former Saturday Night Live performers that make up the main cast. It's unabashedly silly throughout, but the lack of pretension proves quite charming as the colourful characters bend over backwards to get laughs. Whether it's the ill-fated anger management sessions or Peter Dinklage's delusional, disco-dancing eagle, there's something in there that will raise a chuckle. While it's maybe more fun for spring chickens, The Angry Birds Movie does a lot with a flimsy premise.

Summary

Outsider Red does not fit in among his island community, but he is the only one to smell a rat when a fleet of green pigs pitch up. Animation, with the voice of Jason Sudeikis.
