Yes there's that but the style of action is not movie worthy at all.

You mean some sort of plot like...I dunno...the pigs stealing the birds eggs and the conflict that comes with the birds attempts to retrieve them? ;)

I can't fathom the idea of an Angry Birds movie. How the hell you can make a feature length movie, or anything out of birds splattering themselves against structures with pigs in it?
