Critic Reviews for A LEGO Brickumentary
The documentary is so relentlessly upbeat and told with such cheerleading verve, the style and tone detract from the undeniably interesting material.
Documentary? Please. This glorified infomercial from directors Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge is indoctrination.
The film exhibits an oddly promotional tone that might rub audiences wrong if it were hyping any another product.
Most of this is interesting enough, although a little too self-congratulatory at times, but "A LEGO Brickumentary" never really goes much deeper than that ...
Audience Reviews for A LEGO Brickumentary
A LEGO Brickumentary is an extraordinary film that's incredibly entertaining and lots of fun. Narrated by Jason Bateman, this documentary looks at the history and cultural phenomenon of Lego building blocks. Through various interviews with company designers and Lego enthusiasts, an extensive look is given into at how new product lines are created. The film also explores some of the more unusual uses that Legos have been put to; including modern art, child therapy, amateur filmmaking, and city engineering. And in typical Lego style, there's a real child-like wonder and lightheartedness to the tone. While it may be a bit niche, A LEGO Brickumentary provides a peak into a fascinating world where imagination comes to life.
Comprehensive, well made, and fun to watch.
