ReelViews for movies starring 'Jason Sudeikis'
"The Angry Birds Movie" is like the game - an opportunistic attempt to “strike while the iron is hot” that’s devoid of elements that would give it an extended life.
Deserves to be seen for all that’s good and original about it and for the distinctive way it uses monster movies and monster movie conventions.
The central character is as small figuratively as he is literally, and that limits the movie’s capacity to enthrall and engage.
Engages because the actors are sufficiently invested that they give breadth and depth to characters who are, for the most part, underwritten.
