From Back Cover:
The whole world is looking for a hero, and it's up to a little pigeon named Valiant to step up and bravely serve his country.
Valiant (Ewan McGregor) and his fine feathered friends take to the sky on a wing and a prayer and prove that it's not your wingspan but the size of your spirit that truly counts. Together, this ragtag squadron of birdbrains engage in hilarious aerial adventures at a spitfire pace. From the first bumbling day of basic training through the final feather-raising mission, the flock of comical characters swoop their way toward victory.
From the producer of Shrek and Shrek 2, Valiant delivers stunning animation, a topflight voice cast and an action-packed story loaded with laughs. It's a soaring family comedy that truly earns its wings.
Despite a stellar voice cast and gorgeous animation, this movie falls a little flat. The humor has a very slap-stick feel to it - as well as some bodily-function gags courtesy of the character "Bugsy" - and lacks the subtlety that made so many other animated films so loveable. Still a cute movie, but not anywhere near my first choice among the animated selections.
Rated G (MPAA)
