Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

The sequel to the 2016 animated comedy sees feathered hero Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) and his friends forced to team up with their archenemies, the pigs, to fight a new foe that threatens them both. As with the first film, story is not really top of the list of priorities as we are thrown into a colourful world of gags, pratfalls, and pandemonium. The formula worked the first time and for the most part works here, as the quick-fire script distracts from the occasional plot hole. The sequel is also blessed with an incredible voice cast, with the stand-out being Leslie Jones's villain, a maniacal eagle with an outlandish secret lair. Returning cast members Sudeikis and Bill Hader also build on their roles, creating a fun dynamic between surly Red and his arrogant porcine nemesis, Leonard. What The Angry Birds Movie 2 lacks in structure, it makes up for in laughs in a film that refuses to take itself seriously, and invites you to do the same.
