I don't really understand the lukewarm reaction to this film, as I found Valiant to be an excellent animated film. The story is both interesting and compelling, the voice actors do a great job, there's plenty of comedy from start to finish, and I thought the animation itself was quite good. There's too much emphasis these days on high-tech, fancy animation - sure, it can be very cool, but a cartoon with a good story and wonderful characters doesn't need the fanciest new animation. In fact, a good story can get lost in too much CGI wizardry, and I for one like a more traditional look. I don't mean to say the animation here is simplistic because it's not; it's just not as fancy as some viewers apparently wanted it to be. This isn't The Matrix; it's a movie-length cartoon.

The setting is 1944. With World War II still raging, the Royal Air Force Homing Pigeon Brigade, having suffered extensive losses delivering important messages to and from enemy lines, is looking for a few good pigeons. Valiant (voiced wonderfully by Ewan McGregor) is determined to leave the nest and prove himself, especially if it means serving alongside heroes such as the celebrated Gutsy (Hugh Laurie). No one thinks he can make it (he's not even "yea" high, for one thing), but he's determined to prove everyone wrong and do his part in the fight for freedom. Arriving in London, he meets up with a smelly old con pigeon named Bugsy (Ricky Gervais), who sort of accidentally signs up for service alongside him. They both fit right in to the band of misfits who make up Squadron F (Lofty, the intellectual, blue-blood and two brothers sporting more brawn than brain). Unfortunately, it falls to this lot - even before their training is complete - to take on the mission that, if successful, may well win the war for the Allies.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOOOOOOOOO CUTE! Jan. 8 2006

Ok, I'm in my 30's, have a fondness for anything British, and I LOVED this movie! I was quite surprised. I had read reviews from rotten tomatoes etc... and not to many people liked it. I thought it was BRILLIANT! Perfectly light and funny. What a stellar cast too! I want to own this one! Gervais is so funny! Who doesn't love Ewan! Good hardy laughs. Give it a shot!

A brilliant and funny send up of the RAF pilots in WWII. I'm sure every type is wonderfully represented.
Well done chaps!

Valiant Very good animated story of a young pigeon who wants to be a carrier pigeon for the war; WWII. Many people and especially children do not have any idea of the part that many animals played in both wars. We particularly liked the end notes about the number of animals receiving medals, pigeons included. What a great way to introduce the very important services animals, especially pigeons, performed.
