Well, I had to go see this today because I was curious how it is getting much higher (double the) review scores than Warcraft (despite both being video game movies). 43% on rottentomatoes for Angry Birds vs only 19% for Warcraft.
First of all, the CGI is better than Warcraft. And the reviewers are right, it's a genuinely good, laugh-out-loud funny movie, unlike the hurried, badly-acted mess that is Warcraft. As the Straight reviewer put it this movie is "sarcastically, subversively funny, and all set within a surprisingly creative universe" - http://www.straight.com/movies/70284...pe-your-family
But what is most surprising is that it is quite clearly a pro-Trump movie. First Zootopia, now this? Woah Hollywood's full-lenght animated feature division has a right-wing agenda to push.
Spoilers from this point on.
So The Angry Birds Movie is about an ordinary community of happy (small town/suburban Americana - their civilization encompasses one tiny island) birds that find themselves having to turn to one of their own, a bird that has taken up the mantle of anger, for leadership - i.e. Trump.
This red bird, this angry bird, was one of the only believers in Mighty Eagle - their community's original and missing leader (i.e. the constitution/the founding principles of America) - and mocked for it. But it's his "not nice" personality that the birds end up needing to resolve the movie's crisis - a group of Mexican (well, Tex-Mex) migrant pigs that arrive by boat to the birds' island, abuse their hospitality and steal all their eggs (children/future) to eat.
The parallels are just staring at you right in the face the whole movie.
Variety's review also comes away with this impression: "Agreeability gets you so far in life, but when the chips are down, it helps to lose your temper sometimes. That’s a pretty unexpected moral takeaway for a kids’ movie, and it’s just one surprise of many in 'The Angry Birds Movie'"
