The Lego Batman Movie Reviews

The greatest disappointment is how much of the script seems to have been assembled from a kit by someone afraid to deviate from the instructions. In a sequel to The Lego Movie, that's not just a letdown, it's a betrayal.

The humor in this film with a narcissistic and superb Batman results in a little more than an ironic copy. [Full review in Spanish]

There are, of course, valuable moments, but it's very difficult to disconnect from this oversized celebration of immaturity which reduces everything to the essential conflict of the Instagram era. [Full review in Spanish]
February 10, 2017
A story that seeks to highlight the importance of family and solidarity, but quickly crumbles in its attempt to be uplifting and sobering. [Full review in Spanish]

Lord knows the superhero genre could use some fun poked at it and we were psyched to see the film, but while there's some fun to be had, it can't help but feel like a missed opportunity.

With more concentration on the emotional foundation, this could have been a great animated adventure to rival its predecessor, but with a focus that's more on the flashy action, it ends up being a somewhat plodding experience.

It's hard to imagine there will ever be a more cynical film made by a studio with a licensing deal.

The same saccharine joy that made The Lego Movie so great is cloaked all over Gotham City and it just doesn't sit quite right.
April 7, 2017
A frantic mish-mash of ideas and references that turns out to be not-all-that funny... It's more multiplex mulch than memorable.

February 10, 2017
Its quest to be the most overloaded, hyperactive, reference-heavy endeavor of all time goes from amusing to taxing quickly.

It soon becomes apparent that not everything is quite as awesome this time around.

March 18, 2017
...a fairly misguided endeavor that grates more often than it entertains.

February 9, 2017
What should have been a delightful romp with Arnett's cleverly, self-styled Batman, an arrogant loner with a uniquely raspy voice, has turned into a too-long and ultimately dull statement on the virtue of friends and family.
February 9, 2017
This sequel is content to key on a super hero defending his megalopolis against super villains. And that's what makes "The LEGO Batman Movie" a dull sequel for much of the time.
March 29, 2017
What's missing is any trace of 1980s-style punk cynicism to underpin the pop playfulness; instead, there's a complacency which is death to humour.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
February 9, 2017
The Lego Batman Movie is OK, but more than its wildly successful predecessor, well short of awesome.
February 9, 2017
Starts off great with solid humor but somewhere along the line it becomes stale, repetitive and annoying. Batman isn't some emo, wannabe beat boxer who is in love with Barbara Gordon.

February 9, 2017
A movie of endlessly hurtling momentum, this is Mad Max: Fury Road for five-year-olds, and not nearly as much fun as snapping those bricks together.
February 17, 2017
Most of The LEGO Batman Movie's 104 minutes are devoted to action scenes, and audiences are likely to exit the cineplex baffled by their unrelentingly boilerplate quality.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 20, 2017
the hectic pace and sensory overload feels like a cover-if they throw enough stuff at us, we won't care how much of it doesn't work because we can't keep up anyway
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
