"Lance Sterling (Will Smith) has achieved worldwide notoriety as a successful spy. However, his world is thrown into a tailspin when he is transformed into a bumbling pigeon. He must then learn to work with his socially awkward yet intelligent young tech guru, Walter Beckett (Tom Holland), if he is to overcome the nefarious plot of his arch-nemesis. Co-directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane, co-starring Karen Gillan and Rachel Brosnahan. "
Having seen this in the cinema I couldn't wait to see it again so pre-ordered the DVD. The day it arrived we watched it again as a family - with popcorn to recreate the cinema feel. It was as funny as I remembered it and whilst it plays about with all the spy-movie clichés, it does so in a way that is humourous. There is a personal journey for the main character to take and Lance does develop into a more rounded character, helped by a boffin called Walter who becomes his sidekick and eventually his friend alongside some pigeons who take Lance into their flock. The animation looks slick and the story is good. My family all enjoyed it and it's certainly one that won't be consigned to the shelves never to be played again - it's too funny not to watch over and over!
I would recommend this to a friend

Decent Spy Flick for the Family
Pretty good family film. Will Smith and Tom Holland play off of each other surprisingly well.
