One of the greatest animated features ever made, it brings to life the tiny, plastic worlds of LEGO bricks with snappy storytelling, laugh-out-loud humor, and highly imaginative action. Stop motion storytelling has never been this epic.
As cute and energetic as it is, The Lego Movie is more exhausting than fun, too unsure of itself to stick with any story thread for too long. The action scenes are enthusiastic, colorful but uninvolving, like an 8-year-old emptying a bucket of plastic blocks.
Why it rocks: The fast paced nature with its funny, lighthearted tone and engaging story, plus some weird but good characters that are all great. I think where the movie shines is its goofiness. It doesn’t take itself seriously at all, which is why it’s so great. Watch with the whole family.
The movie will definitely appeal strongly to kids and while I appreciate the (sometimes) funny pop culture references, I felt like it was a bit much at times. It was a bit repetitive to me but again, since it was obviously geared towards kids, I'll let it slide a bit. At the end of the day, It's a pretty decent movie that is inconsistent at times but is entertaining enough to warrant watching.
Oh wow obvious blatant social political messaging in a kids movie. Somehow borders are bad now really? From the people who live in gated communities with armed private security really?Commie globalist the movie lol. Nothing worse than a rich hypocrite Lego Creators. Just sell toys you activist weirdos, because that is all you are a toy seller. Last time I spend money on anymore Lego crap.
