Movie Info

Inspired by the true-life story of carrier pigeons who were trained to carry vital information for the Allied forces across the English Channel during World War II, this computer-animated adventure comedy focuses on Valiant (voice of Ewan McGregor), a wood pigeon who has volunteered to do his part for England during the war. While Valiant believes in the cause, he's not exactly a quick study in his training under a no-nonsense sergeant (voice of Jim Broadbent), and his new pal Bugsy (voice of Ricky Gervais), a vermin-carrying former denizen of Trafalgar Square, fares even worse in the courage department. However, when one of the key British birds, Mercury (voice of John Cleese), is captured by notorious Nazi falcon Von Talon (voice of Tim Curry), Valiant and his crew must spring into action to keep the lines of communication open in time for D-day. Along the way, Valiant also finds time to romance avian nurse Victoria (voice of Olivia Williams) and French resistance agent Charles De Girl (voice of Sharon Horgan). Produced at the British Ealing Studios, Valiant also features the voice talents of John Hurt, Rik Mayall, and Hugh Laurie. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

It's not amazing but this animated disney movie is a lot better then some of there other recent films. The voice talent is impressive and to be honest, its pretty charming and cute.

The cast all did there parts, and the film turns out to be quite entertaining, its not up to par with other disney animated features but it still is a very good movie, i mean how can you go wrong with Tim Curry as the villain

Had some funny bits in it but Valiant's story is not the best and the animation just seems to ripoff Pixar. Only a fool would enjoy this. Vanguard Animation, the production company behind this, is truly the worst American animation studio out there. Their films have unimpressive animation and stupid stories with plot holes. But this is better than their other film: Happily N'Ever After. I don't plan on watching their other films: Happily N'Ever After 2, Space Chimps, and Space Chimps 2. This could've been a real great film but they had to screw it up.
