The creators of the mobile game ‘The Angry Birds’ will be happy people. The computer game with which you have to launch birds with a swiping movement has become a phenomenon and that has resulted in a number of sequels for as many game computers. The game’s success also resulted in two cinema films. The second part appeared and silently disappeared from the cinema. High time to find out if this movie is worth your time…

Angry Birds 2 revolves around the birds Red, Chuck and Bomb. King Mudbeard rules over a bunch of evil pigs. This crook wants to team up with other villains to take down the birds. The villain holds the feathered friends responsible for the destruction of their home. Mudbeard and his cronies plot a revenge plan after their homeland was destroyed.

Clearly money has been put into this film. The animation looks colorful and razor-sharp and the voice cast is also not the least. Beloved and well-known American comedians like Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Danny McBride lent their vocals to this film. There is nothing wrong with this animated film. The biggest problem, however, is that the creators of this production have nothing to say. This film exists, looks nice and doesn’t irritate or bore you, but that’s about it.

‘Angry Birds 2’ doesn’t stick. The characters lack personality and the story is negligible. The attention is drawn by the cheerful colors and the bickering of the voice cast. Kids will love this and adult viewers will be entertained too, but it’s a disposable product. There are much better animated films on the market. Films with a message and a personality. ‘Angry Birds 2’ is as light as a feather and therefore wingless.
