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.

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.
