Critic Reviews for The LEGO Movie
The movie is a wonderful surprise, cleverly written and executed brick by brick with a visual panache.
Lord and Miller's sensibilities are continually clever, and The Lego Movie works hard to gradually deliver surprising payoffs to what seem to be throwaway bits.
The Lego Movie has enough wit and wisdom to send a recession-age message to families on the importance of thinking through problems with creativity.
At least, lighthearted silliness serves as a palliative for the reflexive cynicism that emerges in viewers confronted with such a blatant corporate agenda. But the filmmakers do not have the good sense to stop there.
Hilarious and heartfelt in the right ways, The Lego Movie also successfully pokes fun at the genre cliches we're all so used to.
Audience Reviews for The LEGO Movie
Sweet, humorous and lots of fun. The LEGO movie meets and exceeds all pessimistic expectations of this feature. Whilst visually stunning, the choice of voice actors truly add to the humour and are perfect choices, particularly Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman and Will Ferrell. Every person who has watched this film has never forgotten the sweet yet ingenious lyrics to "Everything is AWESOME!!". Easy for kids to understand and great nostalgia for older Lego fans, The LEGO Movie has a safe spot on my top 10 of 2014.
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..
