The Angry Birds Movie

PLOT:

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), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) 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.

What people are saying:

“The game “Angry Birds,” at its core, is a destination for switching off your brain. And movies, even throw-away summer animated kid films, should aim for something more.” 1 star

“This movie suffers from the problem of the trailer giving away all the best scenes. I expected a lot more humor, since the trailer was actually pretty hilarious, but unfortunately they just crammed all the humor into that two minute trailer and the rest was just kind of… there. The animation isn’t anything to write home about, and the plot is really pretty simple. It was cute, and I’ve certainly seen worse, but I wouldn’t be tempted to see it again. ” 3 stars

“This isn’t a movie. It’s a colorful, unfunny headache, that utilizes Limp Bizkit in an unironic way, and whose funniest aspect is a mime…yes, a mime.” 1 star

“The Angry Birds movie was one of the best surprises of 2016 for me. It could have been the complete lack of expectations but the animation, character & set design, lighting, and dialogue quality had me reeling and constantly smiling at how entertained I was. Unfortunately, despite its unshakable quality during the first half of the movie, it suffers a disappointing hit in quality regarding story development and gags more or less exactly from the point wherein toilet humour is (somewhat literally) introduced. Despite its faults, this movie holds a special place in my heart for making me feel so very, very good.” 4 stars

“I went into this movie with no idea what to expect. The Angry Birds Movie is arguably the best video game adapted movie ever made, which sadly isn’t saying very much. For once, I agree with the critic consensus-this movie is way more entertaining than it has any right to be. Some of the humor is forced and some is just bad, but most of it is pretty funny. The final attack on Piggy Island is pulled straight from the games with some new stuff added in-and that’s exactly why it’s so great. The opening scene is a little forced and awkward, but there’s enough good in the rest of the movie to make up for it. Probably the best thing this movie has going for it is the voice cast. Andy Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Danny McBride, and Sean Penn are all perfectly cast, and the others are all great.” 3 stars
