I am only giving this movie a 1 for the great cast, though I can't imagine what any of them were thinking. This movie was horrible
The movie's not perfect, but it sticks the landing of its message. It was engaging - thrilling at times - and I personally thought it was a great time.
Do computer games make good films? What happens when an island full of happy-go-lucky birds fall foul/fowl of duplicitous green pigs?On a small island with a huge eagle-shaped mountain in its centre lives a group of birds, going about their anthropomorphic business. Red spends most of his time being rather cross, but most of the other birds are fairly equable. Into their lives comes a boatful of green pigs, all hail-fellow-well-met on the surface, but actually bent on a nefarious, nay, despicable plan.Angry Birds is, I am told, a popular computer game for mobile phones and the like. I confess I have never played it, so I approached this CGI feature without any prejudgement other than the trailer, which I found quite amusing. So what can I tell you?It has a decent plot - simple, of course (as kids are a big part of the intended audience), but with some genuine suspense and jeopardy in it. Lives are at stake here! And there is some genuine emotion, too: it wouldn't be unreasonable for your eyes to start watering a bit here and there. It is very bright and colourful with pleasing animation, in terms of both design and execution, albeit possibly a little over-kinetic in places. I initially thought the character design was rather basic, but it actually fits each character well and, of course, reflects the game. Voices also match the characters well, and the voice actors, being seasoned pros one and all, invest their characters with genuine personality (it's amazing how much difference a good voice cast can make in an animated film). Crucially, Red is a very likeable character despite being angry, which is a point of some importance given that he is the protagonist.The last two CGI films I've seen have both disappointed me, so it is pleasing to report that this one didn't. And I should also report that it is very funny. It is crammed chock full of gags: sight gags, character gags, verbal gags, action gags, and they nearly all work. There is occasional toilet humour - you're probably not to worried about that given where you are reading this, but there are those who may object to their children being exposed to (for instance) the first Eagle gag which had tears streaming down my face. But then, I am very infantile in my appreciation of humour. If you're taking your kids, they'll find it a funny film, and you will enjoy sitting there picking up the references which skate over their heads (there's one from Kubrick's The Shining, for instance).The 3D has its moments, but is fairly non-essential.This is a strong 9 out of 10, maybe even a full 10 if the wind is in the right direction. And I'm not eggs-agerating.
Red attends anger management classes and meets other angry birds. Pigs come to island and steal eggs to make an omelet on their island. Only Red can save the day.The film used slapstick humor for the kids and an occasional scene that adults can enjoy such as "The Shining" pig twins. I haven't heard "egg-cellent" since Vincent Price spoke those words on "Batman." The film is light on heavy themes and saved money by avoiding high priced stars for the voices. Red was easy to identify with, but the rest of the birds were a bit shallow in character, but hey, it is just a movie for kids. Hatching eggs uses phrases similar to child birth for humor. Might want to wait for an inexpensive rental.Guide: Bird standing and urinating like a man. Uses phrases like "Pluck my life" and "Flocking birds."

The film is "somewhat" based on the "Angry Birds" game. The elements are all there, the non-flying birds, which become angry at a certain point, the green pigs that love eggs for meal, some gadgets and even the arcade era nostalgia. Fortunately, it doesn't try to follow the original game's story line, what would be amazingly boring, for sure. Instead, the film follows one of the game's characters' daily life, Red.There are three main acts, the first being the story of Red's life and why he has anger issues, the second tells the story of the pigs' plot to steal the birds' eggs, and the third is the rescue and escape from the pigs' island. There are some intermissions, like the anger management class and the quest for Mighty Eagle. The film loses some comic momentum on the third act, replacing it with more action, but it's still very funny.Although it's a computer animated cartoon, it's definitely not a safe Disney-like feature. It contains all sort of jokes, from childish (e.g., Red smashing the cake) to adult ones, including some scatology (e.g., Chuck dropping ice cream on the policeman and Mighty Eagle "soiling" the sacred lake). Everything is taken lightly, though, so even the more adult-oriented jokes are played on the safe zone (arguably, some people are more easily offended than others, but then again, they should just stay away from anything not Disney-ish). In a scale of zero to five, being zero "Finding Nemo" and five, "Sausage Party", "The Angry Birds Movie" is somewhere in between two and three, meaning there are some "suggestive" jokes, but absolutely nothing explicit. That said, it's noteworthy that there are no swearing, not a single bad word anywhere, thanks to the clever scripting and intelligent dialogues, and violence is at a "Tom and Jerry" level, so when TNT goes off, the most that happens is people getting sooth on their faces.If you have never played or, at least, seen the "Angry Birds" game, you may miss a few jokes. If you are still a child, you may miss some other jokes, too. Even so, there is so much fun packed in this film that it's a guaranteed fun ride. Warning, if you were born on the last half of the 20th century, you may laugh your lungs out watching this!
This summary is not a joke. This movie is honestly terrible.The thing with the Angry Birds Movie which I do not understand at all is that it's supposed to be aimed at a family-friendly audience, however there are jokes galore here that do not fit in that category.Unfunny adult innuendos, twerking, toilet humor. I'm not the kind of person who would even be into this but I was genuinely disgusted about how crude this movie is.And also, instead of the movie being dragged on and long just like any other simple story being adapted to the big screen, the movie goes way too fast. I couldn't keep up with what was going on. Even in places where it seems normal it doesn't ever stop for a second. There was an interesting premise to this movie but it just didn't catch on to me because of the humor and how fast the movie goes. And I had to click off after watching for a while because I couldn't take it. I almost had an aneurysm.
