The Angry Birds Movie is a fun history to enjoy with family. The protagonist is a Red, a big eyebrows bird who usually is angry, so he’s the outcast at the town. Due to his outburst, he’s sentenced to an anger management class. There he meets Chuck, a yellow hyperactive bird with hypervelocity powers, and Bomb, a huge black bird who can cause explosions.
The twist of the history is that Red from being an outcast because of his anger, gets to be the hero who saves the children of the community. When a tragedy shatters the village due to some evil green pigs, he encourages them to be brave and take the fight. Luckily, after a few dramatic and spectacular adventures, we can see a happy ending.
When the movie was released, it received mixed reviews: critics praised the animation and voice acting, but criticized the story and humour. Anyway, the film won 352 million worldwide and got to be the fourth highest-grossing film based on a video game. Not bad for an angry ex-outcast Redbird with a giant slingshot, and an ex-retired fatty Mighty Eagle.
The soundtrack includes hits from the 80s as “I Will Survive”, “Never Gonna Give You Up”, or “Rock You Like a Hurricane”, which can be an attraction for the parents in the audience. It also has contemporary songs as “On Top of the World”, and some made for the film’ stars, as “The Mighty Eagle Song” and “The Mighty Red Song”.
This adventure talks about fun, anger management, redemption, community, heroism, and friendship. I find it useful to be more empathic and inclusive with people who seem to have a disproportionate anger response and to believe than as they can be reeducated, they also can thrive when needed.
