Movie Info

"The LEGO (R) Movie" is the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO (R) adventure. The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet (Chris Pratt) an ordinary, rules- following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. (c) Warner Bros

As a rule, movies about toys need to be approached with extreme caution; some of them have been bad enough to count as health hazards. This one is the exception.

The visuals are spectacular, the 3D technology is artfully used and the story is jam-packed with so many funny lines, it's hard to catch all the jokes that are delivered in rapid-fire succession -- constantly tweaking many popular culture icons.

The Lego Movie presents one of the brightest-colored dystopian nightmares ever marketed to children ... highly imaginative, wildly fun, and clever on multiple levels.

By going off the proverbial reservation, making what amounts to a Lego movie for adults, even at the risk of displeasing those who wanted nothing more than a nostalgic wink fest, The Lego Movie merits praise as a true work of thematic richness.

Everything is awesome! Well, not quite everything - but more than enough to make THE LEGO MOVIE the biggest and best surprise this year.

While "The Lego Movie" may have a pretty basic story, its beautifully animated world and talented vocal cast give it enough depth to provide lots of fun and excitement.

In what is sure to turn out to be this generation's Toy Story, this crazy-funny animated lark takes us into a hyper-happy world where everything is so awesome there's even a pop anthem called Everything is Awesome... fresh and fast and funny.

Delightful, inspired, affecting, utterly hilarious stuff, and certainly the first feature starring Batman to earn a couple of those compliments.

Just as the conceptual agility of The LEGO Movie never ceases to astonish - it will take at least three viewings to fully take in every last detail applied here - the visuals both innovate and resonate to heights only previously scaled by Pixar.

it's worth your time to discover instead of me preempting by synopsis and/or recitation. I hate it when an internet post ends this way, but it's all you're going to get from this review: "Enjoy!"

A wry, playful and intelligent piece of filmmaking that, like Toy Story before it, rises far above its station.

It's fast, smart, really funny, full of great action and contains a song, 'Everything is Awesome', with the single catchiest hook in the history of songwriting. Seriously, in this movie at least, everything really is awesome.

State-of-the-art software has been used to make the characters look like actual plastic figurines brought to life through the magic of stop-motion animation. In other words, this is a digital movie with an analogue soul.

Audience Reviews for The LEGO Movie

A delightful family comedy about an everyday lego construction worker (voiced by Chris Pratt) who is thought to be the "chosen one" by some mysterious figures in the land looking to overthrow the ruthless Lord/President Business (voiced by Will Ferrell). The variety of characters and the fantastic dialogue help drive a creative, inventive story that has jokes for all ages, especially little kids. Pratt is a perfect fit to voice the lead character, while Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, and Liam Neeson (who almost steals the show as "Bad Cop") offer tremendous support. The finale is an interesting choice and handled very well by the directors, and although there are some questionable political underpinnings concerning its message, overall it is still well worth a view.

Surprisingly good with a great twist although everyone likes it and I just say okay.. I wonder how people can somehow overrated a movie and for me 'The LEGO Movie' is definitely overrated.. I mean it's a nice movie with a fantastic effects of all the LEGO detail, but some slapstick humor that they have are definitely not my thing.. Even though a lot of people love it, I still don't regard this movie had such as high values..

This movie clearly owes much of its inspiration from the Toy Story series, but that is not a bad thing in this case. This is a surprisingly insight film towards the end because of scenes I do not want to spoil. I had started to expect it might be happening, but I did not actually expect them to show it. The film itself is very funny and entertaining, if a little bit silly in most cases, but the animation is wonderful and inspired. I found myself just looking at all the excellent Lego animations several times. I understand why this was such a big hit now. Worth watching regardless of your age. Besides, having Batman is always a plus.

The story of a nobody who saved everybody.

Great Animated Movie! A combination of adult and child friendly humour should entertain all, the movie has done well to ensure audiences of all ages are catered to. The Lego Movie accurately and effectively recreates that creative space through accessible movie magic. It exhibits a fun hero story that may not be treading new narrative ground but nonetheless feels fresh and new. Finally the themes and occasionally biting humor makes The Lego Movie a kid's film that isn't just for kids but the child in all of us. Go see it!

The LEGO Movie is a 3D animated film which follows lead character, Emmet a completely ordinary LEGO mini-figure who is identified as the most "extraordinary person" and the key to saving the Lego universe. Emmet and his friends go on an epic journey to stop the evil tyrant, Lord Business.
