This review of the movie contains the following information:
Wanting to maintain his hero status, Red (voice of Jason Sudeikis) is keen to agitate the wars between Bird Island and Piggy Island. Red and his friends, Chuck (Josh Gad) and Bomb (Danny McBride) need to protect their island from piggy pranks. Leonard (Bill Hader) leads his piggy friends in the constant bombardment of objects dropped onto Bird Island. However, when a new threat emerges in the form of Zeta (Leslie Jones), an unhinged, psychotic female eagle intent on destroying both Bird and Piggy Island, Leonard and Red must form a truce to fight together.
Eagle Island is a frozen volcano and, with the aid of her eagle soldiers, Zeta invents a frozen ice ball, filled with volcanic lava, that can be shot out of a super weapon to set both Bird and Piggy Islands on fire. Red and Leonard form a small band of warriors and together with the intellectual guidance of Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom), devise a plan to destroy the super weapon. In the process Red learns some important lessons.
Children and adolescents may react adversely at different ages to themes of crime, suicide, drug and alcohol dependence, death, serious illness, family breakdown, death or separation from a parent, animal distress or cruelty to animals, children as victims, natural disasters and racism. Occasionally reviews may also signal themes that some parents may simply wish to know about.

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
