All Critics (50) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (23)

  • The documentary is so relentlessly upbeat and told with such cheerleading verve, the style and tone detract from the undeniably interesting material.

  • I'm sure the [LEGO] board of directors loved this.

  • 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 ...

  • True, "A LEGO Brickumentary" is a barely disguised hour-and-a-half commercial. But as hour-and-a-half commercials go, it's somewhat interesting.

  • While there may be over 900,000,000 ways to fit these blocks together, exercise creativity and have fun A LEGO Brickumentary isn't nearly as inventive as its subject.

    February 3, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Imagination will overflow as soon as you see it and you'll be surprised to find that it is an eccentric look at the Lego company that informs, is as layered as its bricks, and entertaining without ever becoming boring.

Audience Reviews for A LEGO Brickumentary

  • Dec 31, 2015
    Comprehensive, well made, and fun to watch.
    Marcus W Super Reviewer

    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.
