    Proves to be more than just a gimmick, and it doesn't skimp on any of the quirky wackiness that you might expect from a film about blob-shaped, flightless birds battling pigs.

    The 3-D animated film delivers a mildly diverting mix of winky meta-jokes and moral lessons, cannily aimed at both the next generation of tiny consumers and their more sophisticated parents.

    Calling The Angry Birds Movie an “animated film” is giving it airs. It’s a cartoon. Deal with it.

    If you loved the game, you might enjoy watching the script contort itself into ever more zany shapes to incorporate the necessary elements: giant slings, teetering towers, boomeranging toucans. But it’s not enough to counteract the tiresome, sub-Lego Movie snarkiness of the script or the bright, busy and unengaging animation.

    The Angry Birds Movie is a lot of things, but none of them true to the app's appeal.

    It should come as no surprise that The Angry Birds Movie is a loud and dumb children’s film, but for what it’s worth, there are plenty of cinematic commercial ventures that are louder and dumber and so on than the well-meaning and slickly sold Birds.

    Maybe it’s supposed to be the enlightening tale of one bird’s self-redemption from neurotic negativity, but I just wanted to punch this film in the snout.

    Also there are no hidden message on immigration( the game has the birds vs pigs 6 years ago).
    The movie has nothing scary for little kids, and kept mine in their seats. Added bonus amazing music.
    Go have a very fun time and laugh for an 1 hour and half:)

    "Why So Angry?"

    Rovio Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment built a great final product, within the limits of cinematographic quality adaptations about video games.

    Despite of that the fame of the digital game already isn't in vehemence, it did in 2009, when Finnish Rovio games company decided to sell a video game based on angry birds and green pigs. So huge was its success that seven years later, a film adaptation has been established in the theatres around the world, while retaining the same color palette of the game, its main characters and even a song from the original. However, its characters aren't the only ones angry, spectators are really angry to see the silly and unbalanced screenplay of the story. In certain way, the extravagant colors, cheap jokes, and even references manage to hide that lack, even so, lack is evident. Nevertheless, "Angry Birds Movie" is the greater favorite video game adaptation in the summer season, with the support of adolescents, adults and most children. At least at the box office amass more fortune than its competitors due to the level of recognition, although "Warcraft" and "Assassin's Creed" may give the fight.

    Fortunately, Sony film is not worthy of the ratings and opinions negative by the audience, well, at least not of all. The expectations for this film were too low, due to the complicated and arduous work to create a story with so few elements, adding to this, the little experience evidenced in previous adaptations of electronic games. Sony gets to engage in a true animated movie, failing in its terrible script, creating lack of chemistry and consistency, not very present in neighbouring companies (Diney - Pixar and even Dreamworks). Bird design is beautiful, majestic and excellently projected, its colors, textures, personalities and sizes make this adventure, a real game of "Angry Birds".

    We meddle in its main scarcity, "The Lego Movie" is a clear reference of a flawless screenplay. Perhaps, screenplay by Jon Vitti (Alvin and the Chipmunks) is simple and limited by the almost nil tools on which they are based, hampering the creation of characters more deep. They thought that by being a film directed mainly to the public children, the plot should be simple and clear, without much depth or complexity in order to solve the basic questions of the game.

    Why are angry the "Angry Birds"?

    In an anthropomorphic world, all kinds of birds coexist in a peaceful, fun, colorful and friendly place (an island), all but Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) a embittered and resentful bird with life since child due to his physical appearance, his temperament was not the best and he is forced to attend classes to control his anger with the beautiful and delicate Matilda (voiced by Maya Rudolph). There, he finds to his three companions of adventures, Chuck (voiced by Josh Gad) an animated yellow canary with speed powers (with a clear scene referenced to 'Quicksilver' ("X-MEN")), Bomb (voiced by Danny McBride) a black, bomb-shaped bird, which cannot control his temper and simply explodes and finally and less present Terrence (voiced by Senn Pean) a biggish red bird with noble feelings. The group of misfits will have to save their city from the dangerous and malicious green pigs, an unprecedented adventure began.

    "Angry Birds" pleases to infants with a predictable, colorful and entertaining story, but also meets with ironic humor to the public adult with perfect and clear references to "The Shining", "X-MEN" and classic Tex Avery gags. If the screenplay had not been so redundant in the themes and repetitive objectives in animated films (the family, the hero, save your city, happy ending), would be the perfect blend with high quality graphic effects. We consider, this film like a game of "Angry Birds", where all pigs have been defeated, but the final score doesn't reaches three stars of score.

    Well some people didn't like this film,
    I only played one of the games,
    And I saw this during Memorial Day in the theater,
    So my thoughts on it is:
    It's okay, why okay
    Cause it's story was a bit cliche and some characters were stereotypes,
    But the animation looked nice and it was a bit cute so it wasn't all that bad.
