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

  • 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.

  • State-of-the-art software has been used to make the characters look like actual plastic figurines brought to life through the magic of stop-motion animation. In other words, this is a digital movie with an analogue soul.

    Apr 2, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • With all this going for the film, you can understand why Lego should be so pleased with it and why it's already had such world box-office success. But its relentless action and pounding soundtrack sent me out feeling battered rather than uplifted.

    Apr 2, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Under the keen eye of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, The Lego Movie exceeds all expectations by being a vibrant, colourful, and extremely heartwarming film about the importance of creativity - while also being laugh out loud hilarious in nearly every scene thanks to it's rapid fire pacing and groundbreaking animation.

    Perfectly formed film with a subversive, political edge (really) and a powerful, moving message. One of the best animated films of the decade.
