Hilarious and heartfelt in the right ways, The Lego Movie also successfully pokes fun at the genre cliches we're all so used to.

It's one of the few movies based on a toy with no explicit story behind it. And it is, so far, the only one that's really good.

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.

The Lego Movie is a brilliant technical achievement.

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.

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.

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.

A thrilling, consistently funny, all-ages extravaganza, The Lego Movie is virtually critic proof, in that we can't find a darned thing wrong with it.

While younger viewers will delight at the whiz-bang animation action and hugely likable familiar figures, adults will laugh themselves silly at the smart consumer satire gags and goggle in wonder at the undulating Legoland vistas.

Adults who go to The Lego Movie out of a weary sense of parental duty are in for a very pleasant surprise.

Though not everything about The Lego Movie is awesome, you'll leave the cinema wearing a real smile.

A work of unbridled imagination, apt to delight sociologists, stoners and six-year-olds alike.
February 13, 2014
It's playtime on film, done with wit, warmth, and respect for the business of imagination.

The film is never hampered by its chosen medium. It goes everywhere and does everything, from pitched aerial battles to cities at bay against inferno.
February 13, 2014
Is this a glossy feature-length advert for toys? Nope, it's a whimsical and hilarious piece of animated nostalgia from Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

This is truly a movie that children and their parents can both enjoy for different reasons.

The Lego Movie: Merely a great film, or the greatest film ever in the history of cinema?
February 7, 2014
The visuals are spectacular, the 3D technology is artfully used and the story is jam-packed with so many funny lines, it's hard to catch all the jokes that are delivered in rapid-fire succession -- constantly tweaking many popular culture icons.
