The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)



Critic Consensus: Despite ample charm and a few solid gags, The Lego Ninjago Movie suggests this franchise's formula isn't clicking like it used to.

Movie Info

In this big-screen NINJAGO adventure, the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd's dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu.

Critic Reviews for The Lego Ninjago Movie

All Critics (64) | Top Critics (23)

I won't give away one of the best gags, but the sight of a giant cat causing mayhem in a city built of LEGOs definitely makes up for some of the film's less inspired passages.

Despite comically inspired vocal performances from Justin Theroux and Dave Franco as nutjob Lego versions of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, the action and jokes pile up with exhausting repetitiveness.

It all snaps together easily, just like it says on the box.

There's no there there, and the film never seems to know what it's playing with besides the idea of movies in general.

Just three movies in, the Lord/Miller LEGO genre is showing signs of exhaustion.

The bloom is definitely off the brick. The anarchic spirit and spitball humour of The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie have been replaced by characters and gags from a faulty assembly line.

Audience Reviews for The Lego Ninjago Movie

The Lego Ninjago Movie doesn't have what previous theatrical Lego movies have. What makes this movie very lacking compared to The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego Movie is that it wasn't built to make the laughter last longer if someone would see this again and again.
