The Lego Movie – Movie Review

LEGO-04

Have we finally reached a film this year worthy of the steep admission price? Hit the jump to watch my review…

Official Synopsis: An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together.

Review Summary: The Lego Movie is the rare family film that truly earns that description. A child can find things to love about this movie, and that same child can grow into an adult, and suddenly recognize the clever and inventive humor that is strewn throughout this excellent film. The use of stop-motion animation combined with CGI is seamless, and the voice work is top of the line. Hilarious and heartfelt in the right ways, The Lego Movie also successfully pokes fun at the genre cliches we’re all so used to. This one’s actually worth the ticket price!
