On an island entirely populated by happy flightless birds, local outcasts Red (Jason Sudeikis) Chuck (Josh Gad) and Bomb (Danny McBride) get suspicious when a ship containing a cargo of green pigs claiming to seek friendship for the island arrives. They decide to seek out the legendary Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) to find out their new guest’s true intentions.
This co-production between Sony Imageworks and Rovio Entertainment is an impressive effort to bring the 2009 IOS game to the big screen and it works where other video game adaptations have failed. By bringing lashings of humour into the screenplay, while giving a message on how being angry can actually be a good thing, the animation is bright and colourful and overall admirable..
All of the voice actors do a fine job with Bill Hader and Peter Dinklage standing out as the prissy King Pig and the flamboyant Mighty Eagle, but the real scene-stealer is the massive Terrance (Sean Penn) who steals the show.
Overall The Angry Birds Movie is an impressive video-game adaptation which your kids and those who loved the game will enjoy.
