Even as a kids movie, it was awful.
- 'Valiant' is a 2005 3D animation film directed by Gary Chapman and produced by Walt Disney Pictures. The film tells the tale of a group of war pigeons, who take on a dangerous mission during World War II. I must confess that the film was not as great as I expected, though some characters were funny. I do like the voice cast: Ewan McGregor (Star Wars Prequels, The Impossible), Ricky Gervais (Night at the Museum), John Cleese (Monty Python films, Rat Race), John Hurt (Alien, V for Vendetta), Jim Broadbent (Cloud Atlas, Harry Potter films) and Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture, IT).
Valiant (McGregor) is a small pigeon, who wants to leave the countryside to become a War hero. In London he meets Bugsy (Gervais), a dirty pigeon who is a hustler who tries to avoid two thugs trying to get him. Both Valiant and Bugsy are sent to recruit training. Under the command of Sergeant Monty (Broadbent), they start their training. Meanwhile, German falcon General Von Talon (Curry) and his henchmen are taking out war pigeons that are crossing the English Channel. Can Valiant and his friends get across and deliver a message that might end the War?
