Run time: 97 mins

An animated sequel inspired by a phone app isn’t the most promising film premise, but the second instalment in the Angry Birds series is much funnier and flappier than it has any right to be.


Film two pushes further into action territory, diversifying its carnival of candy-coloured animals – again headed by fiery avian Red (Jason Sudeikis) and porcine blowhard Leonard (Bill Hader) – as our heroes scale the eagles’ ice fortress to face the vengeful Zeta (Leslie Jones). Three credited writers have been let off the leash to truffle for gags, as evidenced by a B-plot that pitches three fledglings into space while recovering stray eggs: essentially a replay of the Ice Ages’ squirrel-and-nut business, but with ample scene-by-scene invention to distinguish it.


The obligatory smash-and-grab pop-culture raiding includes The Great Escape, Dawson’s Creek, David Bowie’s Space Oddity and even the Beverly Hills Cop theme, which becomes the focus of perhaps one too many dance-offs. Still no word on why the pigs are green, but even that now looks intrinsic to how these loony toons have upturned convention and expectation. (Jack Whiting)
