Released by Disney, but made in England, this budget-conscious, computer-animated family film concentrates on a group of carrier pigeons recruited to serve the RAF during World War II. Poor, overworked Ewan McGregor (take a vacation, boy) voices our main "hero," a scrawny little pigeon who overcomes his small size to challenge the enemy's evil Falcon Brigade. The film is slim, slapstick heavy and features all the expected war film parodies, but the voice cast is rich (Rickey Gervais, Tim Curry, Jim Broadbent, John Hurt, John Cleese). 76 minutes PG.
