If you're one of the few people who never downloaded Angry Birds, the game's premise is delightfully simple: Flightless, multicolored birds slingshot themselves into pigs' fortresses so they can retrieve their stolen eggs. For the movie, that idea is fleshed out even more and tells the story of how those birds got to be so angry in the first place.

If there's one thing The Angry Birds Movie gets absolutely right, it's pairing the characters with their voice counterpart. The voice cast is totally spot-on! The animation and design work are beautifully brought to life from the games' tropical color palette, giving the show a unique visual style.

The showstopper and highlight of Angry Birds is the final act, which is basically a revved-up version of the mobile game. Here, the birds start hurling themselves at the pigs' fortresses, causing them to collapse. Not only does every bird get their moment to shine, but it's done in such a way that's both funny and visually exciting.

One more thing, any movie that begins with a Black Sabbath tune, which was tastefully done, and catches me off-guard with a Stanley Kubrick reference, gets a huge nod from me!

Skor: 10/10
