The Angry Birds Movie 2 Reviews

August 15, 2019
Just like its mobile incarnation, The Angry Birds Movie 2 simply pelts you with loud, shrieking diversions. The filmmaking has levelled up, but you're still wasting your time.

The movie, directed by Thurop Van Orman, reminds us that finding a formula to appeal to both kids and parents for 90-odd minutes isn't rocket science.

The "Angry Birds" movies are the textbook definition of "chaotic energy."

So "The Angry Birds Movie 2" is not great cinema. But the animated sequel - inspired by the popular Angry Birds games, available on mobile devices and other platforms - goes above and beyond what is to be expected from such things.

Things move along at such an agreeably fast clip-particularly in the second half, when the mission gets underway-that it'll be a pleasurable experience for kids and adults alike.

"Angry Birds 2"... tosses story, character and sense aside, and opts for a go-for-broke style of humor. The hoops our heroes jump through become increasingly surreal and hilarious.

Things like character and story feel awkwardly inserted edgewise, and cobbled together from scraps found in the "CGI kids' movie" breakout kit.

The Angry Birds Movie 2 is the very definition of empty-calorie cinema... It's also fast-paced, interesting to look at, and notably less irritating than the original, which is all you can really ask of a film like this one.

The complications are ludicrous, but the movie navigates them with cheek and verve, and the jokes land with surprising consistency.

At best, The Angry Birds Movie 2 could be viewed as a 90-minute diversion for kids who have already exhausted Disney's significant 2019 output.

Like 'The Godfather' with more giant purple birds, this is a sequel that improves on the original.

It's not offensively dire, just half-hearted and derivative, with a Dirty Dozen-style assembly of a team, a Bond-style assault on Zeta's icy lair and an earnest message of unity across races.

Van Orman approaches this expanded universe with something of the visual ambition of Pixar's Brad Bird and a restless, playful spirit reminiscent of the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs films.

The tone and the plot take some time to settle, but once director Thurop van Orman hits his fully frenetic stride (and adults decide to surrender their senses and go along for the ride), the bird and pig unit become almost affable in their daftness.

Ticks plenty of lightweight fun boxes for its prime target audience of younger children, with just enough adult humor to keep parents from yawning too.

Maintains the balance of scattergun jokes, candy-coated visuals and cheerfully bird-brained storytelling that raked in $350 million worldwide in 2016.
