You would have obviously come across this game if you’re a smart phone user. Angry Birds is a game that caters to wide sections of the audience. It is now a huge brand now. You have so many versions of Angry Birds being released in regular intervals. You have a series inspired from it and now a full-fledged feature film.

Why are the birds so angry? We finally have an answer to that. When a group of pig invades a peaceful land of harmless birds that could not fly, three angry misfits teach their folk to fix things right using anger. That is pretty much how you sum up the story in a nutshell.

Coming from a colorful and popular brand of Angry Birds, you expect some crazy fun for kids throughout to keep them pumped up and crawl in their seats with restlessness. Angry Birds does have a few interesting moments especially the climax which is fun but it does not give those constant laugh moments that we expect.

Kids normally don’t get restless during the course of the screening as they will always have something colorful to treat their eyes with but they don’t either get the expected share of entertainment in Angry Birds. Being a kid’s movie, you wouldn’t hope the film to carry a great storyline. Angry Birds not only has a very simple storyline but its narrative style is also blunt and sometimes boring.

There are plenty of cinematic moments in the film that could work a bit but at a large scale, one feels it is a good opportunity missed. Angry Birds deserves a more engaging story than this. The music at few places is flat and could have been more engaging. Few fun scenes did not seem funny because of the music.

Using Peter Dinklage’s voice for the Mighty Eagle works well on screen. Vocals of Sean Penn as Terence and Jason Sudeikis as Red are also effective. The film runs for just about 1 and a half hour but it looks like a long film mainly because the early stages of the film are not engaging enough.

Verdict: It is better as a game!
