This movie tries so hard to be funny, yet it falls flat every time. Just another example of recycled ideas repackaged with women in an attempt to appeal to a certain audience.

This was nothing to write home about, and even worse little kids won't care about anything that is happening. Quite an embarrassment and with one of the shortest running times (a little over an hour) which is actually a good thing. This story has been done thousand times over, and just about always done better. Ewan McGregor is wasted, and he tries his best with what he's given. Just a huge mistake on not using your voice cast to their full potential. It's called a script, and even the best actors can't save it. Don't waste your time or your kids time. Stick to the Pixar or even some of the Disney movies to be actually entertained. Anyone that gives this a high score needs to have their heads examined. Even a novice knows this is how not to make a good animated film.

This is an unusual, but very good CGI film, it deserves more credit than it is receiving. One good thing is it doesn't mind mentioning the Second World War - and you might actually learn something that happened in the past for real - not what happened in animation before. As in most animated films, the characters are very likable and there are lots of good actors voicing them, such as Ewan McGregor (Valiant), Ricky Gervais (Bugsy) and Tim Curry as the main baddie, a falcon. Even though it is about the Second World War, this still remains to be funny, yet serious about the situation at the same time, which is usually very hard for a CGI film.The main character is Valiant, a very small but very brave pigeon, wanting to fight in the war and brave the dangers. Despite other pigeons discouraging him, he flies off to London, where he will sign up to become a messenger pigeon. On the way, he meets a very dirty pigeon called Bugsy, who helps him start his training. It is the beginning of a dangerous and huge adventure...Enjoy "Valiant"! 7 and a half out of ten.

In the IIWW, the British Service of Pedgeons is going to broke out. They are forced to send to combat little and inexperienced pidgeons to do the job. In these missions there is Valiant, a very young and courageous one, which, maybe, can change history. The story is the typical for kids: the good ones, the bad ones (but not very bad), some adventures and a happy ending. Though the images are quite good (CG image), the movie has no astonishing moments that one could expect when computers do the job. Anyway, this is a movie for kids, and, well, they probably would be unaware of that. The characters are easy to understand and typical, the story is not complicated and it has some funny moments. It is relaxed to watch, but an adult would probably be bored easily, as the jokes are very childish. This is not Ice Age or Shrek, but parents will not be very fed up (just a little), while kids will have a good time.

Brilliant movie. A 'take' on every WW2 film ever made. Although this film had appalling reviews I had a feeling it would be good from the trailers I saw. I loved the cadets on the parade ground during their training. I thought the bit with Valiant giving his girlfriend nurse a flower was excellent. I especially liked the cool poise of the French Resistance when faced with dreadful odds. The film was more for adults than children, I'm sure the humour went straight over their heads. The graphics were good and I loved the colours used. I found this film to be very funny, very nostalgic and very nice looking. Loved the sound effects too.
