, , Leave a comment



Based off of the popular app for iPhone and other devices Angry Birds follows the story of Red a bird living on an island full of happy birds, but as he is unhappy and is constantly angry the court sends him to anger management classes. He still continues to annoy and anger his other islanders until the arrival of mysterious green piggies come to inhabit the island. This leaves Red and his buddies Chuck and Bomb to deal with the problem and to find out why and what these pigs are there for.

This was such a great and enjoyable little family film. I really enjoy watching these films from time to time, to give myself a break from the horror films I watch. This was exactly the kind fo film I needed. It was so cute and fun and I really enjoyed myself a lot.

I think this will be good for the entire family. There are those family films that parents can not stand to sit through. In recently years there have been a few films that even parents can enjoy as much as children. Films like The Good Dinosaur from Disney is a great example.

Speaking of Disney Josh Gadd, who voiced Olaf (my favourite Disney character) is a voice in this film. I can totally see how that would be a draw for people to watch this film. I know it was a draw point for me.

This was just a fun and entertaining film, it had genuine comedic moments and was full of heart. I am coming from the view of someone who ahs never played the game so sadly I can not say how faithful this film is to the game or even if this si anything to do with the game.

I can say though I am curious now to play it, but seeing how addictive it can be I am scared for my well being as I would likely play it 24/7.

I am just so pleased I got the chance to watch this film. It was so enjoyable and bubbly and fun. This may not exactly be a horror film but there’s always a good time to watch a family film like this one.
