I was not a big fan of the 2016 Angry Birds video game animated full-length adaptation. It was mediocre from my view, but this one here is just a little step up and I found it hard to keep my eyes open through the whole movie.
I was not expecting much from the movie itself based on the way I felt about the slapstick comedy that was portrayed in the first adaptation. If you liked that slapstick comedy way of delivering this movie in the first part, then this part two is for you. Because we get to see another island run by eagles who just want to destroy the other two islands (that of the birds and pigs).
So, the focus is not just on the birds, but the pigs also joined in as both joined forces to take on the eagles. If you like me are wondering aren’t eagles also birds, and if the eagles want the bird island so much couldn’t they have flown there like Mighty Eagle? Well, the animation is for children and that is just my adult mind thinking too much.

The movie plot continues from the first movie Red is a hero now and he is happy not to be alone anymore and just glad to be needed. The birds continue their battle with the pigs, until one day when the pigs found a huge ice ball hurled at them. They investigated and discovered that there was another island filled with eagles wanting to destroy theirs and the birds.
They offered a truce with the birds so they can face this new enemy together. Red afraid that this truce will end the battle with the pigs and will mean an end to his stardom as a hero, did not want this truce to happen. It was forced on him by the pigs themselves as they showed evidence of the coming doom for the bird island when they raided his home.

Red along with Chuck, Bomb and Silver (Chuck’s sister and later on Red’s love interest) went along with the pigs to their island. Now the pigs have stepped up, using very next level sophisticated equipment. They developed a loopy plan to stop the eagles, but like I said you have to suspend your adult mind as you watch all this unfold.

In the end, I was not impressed and I do not see this movie being as commercially successful to lead to a third wave and maybe that is a good thing.
