The last 15 or 20 minutes were the best in the entire of How to Train Your Dragon franchise. That's the best thing I could probably say about the film. I despise this franchise. This film was the 2nd or the best out of the trilogy. This franchise is overrated and the film is not even remotely interesting. It was a slightly improved How to Train Your Dragon 2. My friend said just by the look of the trailer it looks like the plot is going to be the same as the last film and it's pretty much a copy and paste with big tweaks here and there. They used the greatest parts in the trailer so I wasn't surprised. The beginning was actually pretty good. Also, friends of mine who have read the books have told me nothing is book accurate or even the whole franchise. That doesn't bother me but to some people, it might.
The villain origin was so stupid he said I kill dragons because I like killing dragons. That's like saying I eat food because I have a mouth. It's so lazy. They could've at least said his wife or someone close to him died from one and that's why he kills dragons. Also, I would like to add he looks like Dracula from Hotel Transylvania - he looked so stupid and unintentionally hilarious. I am glad the franchise finished. The voice acting is as good as the last film. The audio was too quiet or maybe the background music was too loud. Either way, could not here a couple of scenes of dialogue. The new dragon introduced was great. All the Light Fury scenes were in the trailer if not most of them. In each of these movies a common tradition to have an extremely uncomfortable and cringe romance between characters. Snotlout was trying to get with Hiccup`s mum. It was so weird.
I loved how they developed their own technology such as scale armor. The animation improves each film. The ending was unsatisfying but managed to made it a worthy within the last five minutes - I won't spoil anything. A few scenes were so out of sync with the audio. The plot for kids was easy to take in because it was simple. Had pretty good comedy.
Everything is as awesome as the first LEGO Movie. I would have to say this is the 3rd best out of the movies in the LEGO universe. The opening was - pretty much shown from the whole trailer - was an apocalyptic type Mad Max vibe. This animation felt like it was more heading towards short LEGO movie animations instead of very good stop motion theatrical release films. The plot was the last thing you would've never guessed. I worried that Rex and Emmet, although their bravery, was going to be the same and they're as well played by the same actor. But that plot twist changed everything. The Bruce Willis jokes made me laugh my ass off. And surprised to see that he plays himself. The Justice League reference was hilarious and Jason Momoa played Aquaman was surprising.
Rex was pretty much a combination of all of Chris Pratt's famous characters put into one. Star-Lord, Owen from Jurassic World, etcetera. The message was better than the first one. I can now see how this is sort of a toy commercial as the number of toys they are putting out based on this movie is ridiculous since the last films merchandise did so well. The film didn't have as much of the secondary characters in it. I have to say the protagonist who had the most to the story was: Emmet, Wildstyle, Batman, Unikitty, Benny, Metalbeard. In order to most used to least. All of the actors did as good as they did previously. If you're expecting to see Duplo versus LEGO, expect the unexpected. It rarely happens. They have many references and jokes spread out the film of a wide age range.
Perhaps this should be the end of the LEGO movie universe. This financially is doing terribly since LEGO Ninjago and it isn't getting hype anymore. It feels quite repetitive. Although that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy this film. There was nothing wrong with it. The script wasn't as great as the first films. I did love it.
An instant A+! Usually, with these types of 'based on a true story' movies, I am going to expect to hate them. Because there will always be big time inaccuracies of just straight up bullcrap lies - by the way did not find anything out that is not true or is true about the story. I did no research during this review. My reason... This film is awesome! No matter how many inaccuracies the film has. It's incredible. It's hilarious, emotional, and compelling. It's too bad this film was terribly marketed. I believe this film was ridiculously underrated. The beginning wasn't much but this whole film together is Oscar-worthy picture. The cinematography was some of the best I have ever seen. And the soundtrack amped scenes one to ten.
Before the film, I was thinking this was going to be a copy of Daddy's Home. I did take some aspects of the movie but no major parts. Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrnes chemistry on the big screen are amazing. Isabela Moner played the main character Lizzie who was pretty much just a stereotypical teenage girl. She was great. As well as Gustavo Quiroz character. One very minor problem, very. Was Julianna Gamiz who played Lita. The reason why I say minor was the fact that she is around the age of 5. She is a beginner actress and her mishap only happens through one scene when she was crying - very small mishap. Whenever Octavia Spencer and Tig Notaro were on screen everyone in my cinema laughed crying. The lines given to them was fantastic.
I loved so much how they made fun of crazy SJW's. The film was incredible. And needs more attention. The audio overcutting transitions were perfect. My whole family said this was perfect. You will love this.
A very unfortunate miss swift reaction. This was a clear miss response to the success of LEGO Movie and LEGO Batman. It seems this film was either extremely good stop motion or fully CGI/animation - which is the one I believe is true. I think the style lost the LEGO feel to it. The only known amount of bricks were the quantity used in the Ninjago city which was 12,680,043. Anybody would say that's impressive. I was surprised to see Jackie Chan. I think this reaction to Ninjago should teach Warner Brothers a lesson. The beginning was scene was felt very long and irritating. I wish it just started with the Ninjas and have some sort of narration from another character like Sensei Wu. The characters could be on the same level as characters like Emmet, but the voice acting...
The voice acting was terrible! The only exceptions were Jackie Chan, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, and Zane Woods (the greater people). Those actors made the rest of the actors sound like garbage. Everyone else was so bad as they did not exaggerate their voice. They did have moments where they were emphasizing themselves but the contrast between them exaggerating and them sounding super bored were weird. The quip lines were so cringey - even for a kids film about plastic building blocks. Lloyd - the main character - was played, Dave Franco. The secondary characters were Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Pena, Abbi Jacobson, Zach Woods, and Fred Armisen. And they played Jay, Kai, Nya, Zane, and Cole. The other ninjas. other than Fred, those were the ones who mostly done the horrible voice acting. The actual characters were great, but were executed poorly - but I have to say Cole was amazing. When the jokes landed they were amazing. It's too bad we never got to see the classic LEGO Ninjago spin.
We got no origin to why he attacks Ninjago. What was moral again? The ending I thought was unsatisfying. The minor plot twist with the generals did not surprise me. One of my most favorite scenes was when they were fighting the bad guys with their powers. I also liked the glare and scratches against the LEGO pieces. I believe that Warner Brothers won't learn anything from this dangerous reaction. This won't at all affect the future of the LEGO Universe.
