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 Lego Movie: Merely a great film, or the greatest film ever in the history of cinema?

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 brightly-imagined Lego Movie is a wickedly smart and funny free-for-all, and sassy enough to shoot well-aimed darts at corporate branding.

A total gas--even if its message is that we should do as Lego says, not as Lego does.

It's brilliantly animated and incredibly well shot - whether it's the dazzling 'Busytown' cityscapes that children's author-illustrator Richard Scarry might once have created or simply two characters defying the breathtakingly shallow depth of field.

A 100-minute advertisement you've paid to watch--now that's ingenuity.

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

Under the Radar

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.

Full Review… | April 9, 2014

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.

The Lego Movie is woeful, forgettable and one of the great film disappointments of this decade.

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.

This is one of the most creative animated features in recent years. I never imagined that so much could be made from the concept.

Audience Reviews for The LEGO Movie

Cinephiles disagree on many things but product placement is generally not one of them. It's a particular pet hate of mine, so you could say I was apprehensive about seeing what is probably the biggest product placement movie of all time. It's ok though, I had a good long chat with the 10 year old me and we've agreed that it's ok, Lego is special. The writers of The Lego Movie know this and have made a film that not only understands the product, they also understand the fans. Lego is that rare toy that does feed the imagination as well as exercise the brain. Instruction vs. Imagination and the ability to excel at both. It's a pretty deep concept for a film about toys. The big revelation is nothing short of brilliant, combined with a great sense of humour and a well balanced mix of CGI and stop motion, it's an irresistible formula. That song though, it's still in my head after nearly a week and it's starting to hurt.

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.
