Adap­ta­tion fails to soar

The An­gry Birds Movie (U)

This adap­ta­tion of the hugely pop­u­lar video game fails to fly high as a soar­ing suc­cess.

The plot is thin­ner than a sheet of pa­per and most of the jokes fall flat.

A tal­ented voice cast in­cludes top comic like Ja­son Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph and Bill Hader but the grumpy-fu­elled an­tics limp along at a se­date pace.

Grimm Sea­son 5 (15)

More fo­cus comes into play in this penul­ti­mate run with a sea­son-wide arc test­ing our he­roes.

There’s still too much em­pha­sis on su­per-pow­ered young­sters and use of dodgy CGI.

But the cast give it their all and none of the char­ac­ters feel short-changed, with Sasha Roiz in par­tic­u­lar gifted an at­ti­tude ad­just­ment.
