The Angry Birds Movie – Angry Red Bird got highest stars for his deliveries
The Angry Birds Movie is based on the popular Angry Bird video game. It is a 3D computer-animated action-adventure-comedy movie set on Bird Island inhabited by birds that are secluded from the outside world. All these birds have is their eggs.
Most of the birds in the island are kind and friendly but the Red is always angry and also suspicious about others. He is sentenced to anger management classes where he meets Chuck and Bomb and forms a group of angry birds. Suddenly, some pigs arrive at the bird island and they get a hearty welcome from the birds. Soon more pigs start landing at the bird island under a secret plan
Angry birds become suspicious about pigs’ activities and start investigating the reason behind pigs flocking to Birds Island. The reason is startling that is to steal the eggs. Pigs have explosives to blow the island and they are successful in their attempt. All the eggs are taken to Pigs Island and kept at a safe place. Now is the turn of Angry Birds to take revenge and bring their eggs back. The birds get united for a concerted effort and also take help of eagle.
The birds attack pigs and bring their eggs back. Red does a heroic act when he returns to the island to bring the egg accidentally left behind. The Pigs Island is destroyed but the pigs escape the destruction and they again start planning to enter into Birds Island to steal the eggs.
The story line is simple yet powerful. Some scenes like the eagle excusing the birds for his laziness and the Red doing a job that shows that he is kind at heart are touching. It is a directorial debut for the directors Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly and they did a good job in first attempt. The movie is doing well on box office and also it has got mixed response from film critics.
