It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the animation and voice acting, but criticized the story and humor. The film was a box office success, grossing over $352 million worldwide and becoming the fourth highest-grossing film of all time to be based on a video game, behind Warcraft (2016), Detective Pikachu (2019), and Rampage (2018). A sequel was released on August 14, 2019, with Sony Pictures Animation co-producing.

PlotEdit

Red is an angry bird who is the outcast from the other birds on Bird Island ever since he was a hatchling due to his short-temper and his huge, jet-black eyebrows. When it causes a premature hatching of another bird's egg, he is sentenced to anger management class, which is the most penalty allowed on the island. Red's classmates Chuck, who is hyperactive and can move at hypervelocity, and Bomb, who can cause explosions with his anger and fear, try to befriend him, but he avoids them.

One day, a boat docks at the island's shore, damaging Red's house. The birds are greeted by two green-colored pigs, the captain Leonard and his assistant Ross, who claim to be peaceful explorers bringing offerings of friendship. The pigs introduce the birds to various innovations, including a giant slingshot, but Red becomes suspicious and sneaks into Leonard's boat where he finds more pigs hidden below deck, contradicting Leonard’s claim that it was just him and Ross. When he returns and shows everyone the other pigs, the birds refuse to believe that the pigs are up to no good, and Leonard claims that he only lied to see if Bird Island was safe for his cousins.

Determined for help, Red recruits Chuck and Bomb to find Mighty Eagle, the protector of Bird Island and the only bird on the island who can fly, who has not been seen for many years. They find Mighty Eagle on top of Eagle Mountain, only to find that he has not flown for years, and that he is overweight, self-absorbed, and leading the life of a slacker. Red discovers the pigs planting dynamite around the island, and realizes the pigs are planning to steal the birds' eggs while the other birds, who seem to be unaware of the trio's absence, are distracted with a party. Red pleads for Mighty Eagle to help him, Chuck, and Bomb, but he refuses. Red admonishes Mighty Eagle before he, Chuck, and Bomb leave. The trio race back to try to sound a warning to the other birds and stop the pigs, but the pigs escape with the eggs and activate the dynamite, destroying the village. The other birds apologize to Red for not believing him and under his leadership, they organize an army and build a boat from the rubble to follow the pigs to Piggy Island.

The birds discover the pigs living in a walled city ruled by Leonard, whose full name is King Leonard Mudbeard. Deducing that the eggs are in the castle at the center of the city, the birds use the slingshot to attack by launching themselves over the walls and into the city's buildings, destroying them. Red, Chuck, and Bomb infiltrate the castle and discover that the eggs are inside a net; the pigs plan to lower the eggs into a giant pot, cook them, and eat them. Mighty Eagle arrives to retrieve Red's group and the eggs, having had a change of heart. One egg falls out of the net and Red battles Leonard for it, but learns to control his anger and distracts him long enough to retrieve the egg. Leonard accidentally ignites the pigs' reserve of dynamite, and a pot collapses and lands on top of Red, shielding him and the egg he was holding from the blast as the dynamite explodes, destroying the city.

All the families, save for one, are reunited with their eggs. Red emerges holding the egg, which has hatched, and returns the babies to their parents. Mighty Eagle approaches Red, Chuck, and Bomb, claiming he merely appeared lazy so they could lose faith in him and find faith in themselves, and takes credit for saving the eggs. Red, now a hero, discovers the other birds have rebuilt his house in the center of the village. Moved, Red allows Chuck and Bomb to move in with him. The pigs are revealed to have survived their home's destruction, with Leonard plotting a new plan.

In a mid-credits scene, the three blue birds use the slingshot to launch themselves out towards the ocean.

ProductionEdit

The film was officially announced in December 2012, although IGN noted that this was "after months of speculation".[15] The success of the Angry Birds Toons series, according to Rovio employee Jami Laes, "validated" the idea of creating a feature film.[16] The first image from the film was revealed in October 2014, with Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Dinklage as part of its cast.[9] Gad at first refused to star in the movie, feeling it was too similar to his role as Olaf in Frozen (2013) but the director eventually convinced him to sign through a 30-minute "visual pitch".[17][18] The film's budget is estimated at $80 million (€75 million).[19] Rovio and Sony Pictures announced they would spend roughly €100 million for the marketing and distribution of the film,[19] giving it the largest budget in the film industry in Finland, outvaluing Big Game's (2014) €8.5 million.[19] Despite the massive budget, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed stated that "it is the one that I don't ever lose any sleep over",[20] calling it "tremendously strong as a story".[20] During August 2015, Rovio announced that they were expecting to cut 250 jobs equaling 40% of the company, the only sector spared being personnel working on the movie.[21]

When multiple major studios approached Rovio to discuss the production of the film adaptation in 2010, Hed eventually decided to have Rovio establish its own in-house animation studio and have it work on the film, rather than risk losing creative control in allowing a third-party studio to produce it. David Maisel, the founding chairman of Marvel Studios, offered to help Hed and Rovio produce the film,[22] as well as John Cohen from Illumination Entertainment and Catherine Winder from Lucasfilm, who later served as the film's producers.[23] Animation services were handled by Sony Pictures Imageworks,[24][25] while Skywalker Sound handled audio post-production services.[26]

The Angry Birds characters were not depicted in their anthropomorphized cinematic designs until the film's announcement so as to avoid spoiling it for audiences.[27]

Critical responseEdit

On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 43% with an average score of 4.94/10, based on 159 reviews. The website's critical consensus reads: "The Angry Birds Movie is substantially more entertaining than any film adapted from an app has any right to be—which may or may not be much of an endorsement."[66] On Metacritic, the film has a score of 43 out of 100 based on 27 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[67] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to F scale.[68]

Lindsey Bahr of the Associated Press gave the film a positive review by writing, "Ultimately, The Angry Birds Movie does a decent job exploring the merits of anger. It's no Inside Out, but it has heart and life, which isn't too shabby for any film—app or not".[69] Variety's Guy Lodge called the film: "A fast, fizzy and frenetically entertaining extension of the manic gaming franchise that, at its zenith, had children of all ages glued to their smartphone screens".[70] While Rafer Guzman of Newsday found the film's plot to be "pretty thin gruel", he thought the script was quite funny and that the animation was brightly colored and appealing.[71]

Glenn Kenny of The New York Times gave the film a negative review, writing, "The kids of today deserve better. So do I, come to think of it".[72] In his review for TheWrap, Alonso Duralde wrote, "Let's be clear, then: The Angry Birds Movie isn't pointless because it's based on an app. It's pointless because it's pointless".[73] Stephen Whitty of the New York Daily News gave the film one out of five stars, writing, "The Angry Birds Movie is just fowl".[74]

If we had given Angry Birds to another studio to be developed, we would have lost that creative control.
