The Angry Birds film from Sony Animation amazed three years ago that (a) it was not awful, and (b) that it was genuinely enjoyable to play: the zappiest brand try to expand this side of the The Lego film. The sequel tempts the destiny by stopping the innately wondrous fighting between birds and pigs in order to confront the neighboring Eagle Island’s new degraders.Thurop van Orman, the new director, approaches this expanded universe with a visual ambience by Pixar’s Brad Bird, with a restless, playful spirit that remembers the Meatballs Cloudy with a chance. The birds are not as angry as they were once, but the franchise is apparently raised.
The original went through its origins and then pixelated the sling of the game. Two films are further into practice and diversify the carnival of the birds of Awkwafina’s smart bird Courney, again headed by Jason Sudeiki’s feverish avian red and porcine blowhard Leonard (Bill Hader)–and then present an Eiger Sanction as the heroes scale the Eagle ice stronghold to face the avenging Zetas (Leslie Jones) and Film two Film two push into practice. Three well-known authors were left to the truffle for gags, as shown by a B-plot which puts 3 newbies into space and retrieves stray eggs: mainly a re-play of the Scuirrel-and-Nut company in Ice Ages with extensive Scenario-to-Scenario creation.
Like in his predecessor, there are many lame references to dabbing and’ restling bird face.’ Nicki Minaj is the 19th biliary voice artist–not everything is zings. But this is one sequence you can’t do without effort, and the jokes of the dudes are so much more than cute, clever or smart enough to make people laugh.At least half a dozen of the most funny sound track signposts from any latest animation are licensed on budget. A Paula Cole Node in a 90s set flashback quickly overlays Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville over the montage of frozen Eagle Island life. No word yet as to why the chickens are green, but even now it feels as if these loose toions have raised the expectations and conventions.
The Angry Bird Film 2 will be available in the UK on 2 August, the United States on 14 August and Australia on 12 September.
