Critic Reviews for The Lego Ninjago Movie
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.
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.
