It is May 1944, in the midst of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. A team of Royal Homing Pigeon Service carrier pigeons, headed by Mercury (Creator/JohnCleese), are carrying a message of vital importance across the English Channel to Great Britain, when they're suddenly [[ShownTheirWork ambushed by German falcon]] General Von Talon (Creator/TimCurry), and Mercury (with the message) is taken prisoner. Meanwhile, the eponymous Valiant (EwanMcGregor) is a young pigeon of small stature in West Nestington who aspires to be a carrier pigeon himself. Heading to London to sign up, he meets with perpetually filthy pigeon Bugsy (Creator/RickyGervais), who signs up alongside him to escape the wrath of two thugs. The two go to the training camp and meet three more pigeons; Lofty, Toughwood and Tailfeather, and the five undergo training under the thumb of the aptly named [[DrillSergeantNasty Sergeant]] (Jim Broadbent). Valiant also falls in love with a nurse (a dove) named Victoria (Olivia Williams). Once training is completed, the five are para-dropped into France on a mission to rescue Mercury, where they meet with two mice, Rollo and [[SweetPollyOliver Charles de Girl]], of the [[LaResistance French Resistance]]. It is now time to rescue Mercury from Von Talon's clutches and get that message back...

%%* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: '''Yodel torture.''' That is all.

%%* * BunnyEarsLawyer: Rollo, the Resistance's sabotage expert has strong PyroManiac tendencies, but he's kept around because... well, that's exactly what they need him to do.

CoolAndUnusualPunishment: '''Yodel torture.The film shows Mercury being tortured with '''Yodeling.''' That is all.It's treated like the sonic equivalent of thumbscrews, and Mercury's ability to withstand it unsettles even General Von Talon.
* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: Nope. Except possibly the cheese-eating bit, seeing as they're mice. Otherwise, they're under-funded and questionably sane, but brave and skilled.
