More exhausting than endearing, the film tries to jam every frame with as many sight gags and one-liners as possible, presumably to cover a plot that plays out like a silly Power Rangers-style superhero saga.

Overall, the film is a joy ride as it boasts of an adorable father-son quirky banter and the ninja adventures. You are bound to fall in love with Dave Franco and Justin Theroux for sure. Watch it.

Time to put the Lego back in its box, methinks.

Its high-energy exploits should go down well enough with the younger end of Lego's cinema audience, but its story is formulaic and its jokes (apart from a brilliant feline cameo) spring no surprises.

The Lego Ninjago Movie could be the funniest film of 2017.
October 15, 2017
Very silly, very funny and particularly recommended for fans of hokey chopsocky films and kittens.

Lego Ninjago, conversely, can't sustain its central joke over an overlong 101 minutes. Everything is not quite awesome.

Unless you are a kid who was just fed a jar of sugar, I'd say it'd be quite tough to keep up with this annoying, screaming film.

There are more misses than hits in The Ninjago Movie.

I can't knock it as a half-term family treat.

Just as Toy Story did by featuring an owner of the toys, it reminds us that these films are about play and imagination. Yes, they're also effectively feature-length adverts for Lego, but this is rampant capitalism at its most arch and entertaining.
October 12, 2017
A pretty cynical toy advert reconfigured as a standard issue hero's journey movie, one replete with trite life lessons that make it about as entertaining as the last Kung Fu Panda film.
October 12, 2017
A sad turn-up for a franchise which has already proven dazzlingly adept at staging Michael Bay-style madcap spectacle on a toy-box scale.

The Lego Ninjago Movie has its moments... but risks drifting off into inanity in a way that the earlier films in the franchise didn't.
October 12, 2017
It's pretty fast, pretty furious and needs a fair amount of perceptual footwork. If you go, let the children take you.
October 12, 2017
Pathos and charm required from original LEGO Movie, not sold separately.

With each offer the quality of the animation of these films is giving more visual dynamism to what can be done with these cinematic adventures built with Lego toys. [Full review in Spanish]

You forget that you are watching plastic bricks on screen and settle in nicely to enjoy the spectacle. As a result, in perhaps in one of the most unsurprising reviews of the year, The LEGO Ninjago Movie is exactly what you expect - bloody good fun.
October 11, 2017
The film is full of the nostalgic charm of the cartoon series and wittily references the fact it is entirely made out of fingerprint-smudged bricks in a way Lego Batman kind of forgot.
October 11, 2017
While fun and heartwarming, The Lego Ninjago Movie's predictability, along with the problematic nature of its setting, hold it back from being as fresh as its predecessors.
