The Angry Birds Movie 2 Review
Here’s my The Angry Birds Movie 2 review which features the voices of Jason Sudeikis, Danny McBride, Peter Dinklage, Leslie Jones, Josh Gad, Bill Hader, Rachel Bloom and is directed by Thurop Van Orman. Opens August 21 from Columbia Pictures PH!
Red, Chuck, Bomb and the rest of their feathered friends are surprised when a green pig suggests that they put aside their differences and unite to fight a common threat. Aggressive birds from an island covered in ice are planning to use an elaborate weapon to destroy the fowl and swine way of life. After picking their best and brightest, the birds and pigs come up with a scheme to infiltrate the island, deactivate the device and return to their respective paradises intact.
I have to admit for this The Angry Birds Movie 2 review that the film was up my alley more than the first one. The jokes were intact and are also slightly better than the first film. The bright colors for all the islands where the characters reside are also great to look at. Even the Eagle’s island looked unique and eye-popping.
I also found the “break” from the movie to be a good way. Who wouldn’t want to spend a few minutes watching three adorable little birds trying to find a way to recover three egss? Me and my daughter sure loved those little moments. Those were very reminiscent of those interstitials from Ice Age featuring Scrat.
The music was OK for me. Nothing really special. There’s a segment here though with an operatic feel that resonated with a number of kids present during the screening. But the general consensus is that the musical score and the songs picked for the movie were just fine.
In a surprising twist, the characters are better fleshed out here. Some have moved past their original status quo while others go to some extreme changes with how they deal with things; namely Leonard who has gone from petty piggy chief to somebody who wholly wants to protect his island together with the rest of the green piggies of his domain. Red (Sudeikis) is still the main focal point for the story; his gives us more to understand why this red birdie is angry. He’s lonely and fears being rejected. He also fears failing which is why he’s overstretching and playing everything close to his heart. If anything, this movie sets him up to become a better character not just for himself but also for his friends and this newfound friendship with the pigs and the eagles.
Allow me to talk about the humor here before we close this up. The humor is funny, that’s one thing but it can be filled with bits of innuendos that may be inappropriate for younger audiences. So if you’re bringing your kids to see the film, PARENTAL GUIDANCE should be exercised. Also I cannot unsee Leonard and his love of tight clothing and skimpy outfit, but hey, you do yours buddy. No judging here.
