When Lance Sterling, a cocky super spy, is framed for stealing an attack drone he was supposed to retrieve, he must go on the run. He seeks help from Walter Beckett, a nerdy science wiz, who accidentally turns Lance into a pigeon. This unusual but entertaining animation offers a combination of The Incredibles and Valiant, if you will. The end result is not as clever and original as some of Pixar’s best work, but neither is it as formulaic and predictable as many other movies in the animation genre. Based on the 2009 animated short Pigeon: Impossible.
