Angry Birds The Movie
I was a bit apprehensive when I first heard they were turning the popular mobile video game, Angry birds, into an animated film. It didn’t make any sense to me how they would be able to work a video game such as this one into a movie with a story to tell and a plot to go with it. And then I watched the film and man was I surprised. They had managed something great and along with that had managed to intertwine the important message of acceptance and not dealing with things just with anger, and this was good because we as adults know that anger doesn’t solve our problems, but kids don’t.
Along with the various film, music and entertainment references or what some would call easter eggs, the film had brilliant animation and included all the angry birds from the game along with the special powers they have, along with some other interesting characters. Even though this was a good film, I still felt as though the plot was too predictable for someone who has played and loves the game, and even with this said It also felt like there was a bit too much happening all the time, whether it was explosions, the animated action or the references that my eyes got attracted to, I was being bombarded with all this stuff that it kind of made it hard for me as the viewer of the film to concentrate on the main purpose of the film which to me are the characters and the plotline of the film. This overload of information in a film may be good for some but not all.
Angry birds is a film, I’d recommend to any families that love to have a good laugh together, It has the laugh and funniness of these lovable birds for the kids, the references that only older people get for the parents or other adults taking kids to see this particular film, and the main lesson in the film, about accepting people who are different or deal with things differents and not using anger as a problem solver, which is definitely a lesson for all who see this.
