The Lego Movie


Anyone who thinks THE LEGO MOVIE is strictly for kids hasn't had the good fortune of seeing this humorous, clever and enjoyable computer animated flick.

Chris Pratt voices Emmitt Brickowski, an everyday construction worker than wouldn't stand out in any crowd. But BOY is he happy. As a matter of fact, everyone in the city is in a great mood, singing "Everything is Awesome!" all the way to and from work.

President Business (Will Ferrell) has made every citizen very content, mostly through catchy songs and Free Tacos one day a week. When a much darker side of Business rears it's head, Emmitt suddenly finds himself thrust into the role of a hero and surrounded by Batman (Will Arnett, hilarious), Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) and a sexy female secret agent named Wildstyle.

There are lots of hilarious film geek references as the action moves to different Lego themed lands and our heroes meet everyone from Green Lantern (very, very funny Jonah Hill), Abraham Lincoln (Will Forte), Superman (Channing Tatum) and Good Cop/Bad Cop (Liam Neeson having a lot of fun).

It's all really stunning to watch, with a level of computer animation that really brings every single Lego block into view.

Writer/Directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller also wrote 22 Jump Street and it shows, there is plenty for adults to laugh at throughout the whole film.

My only problem with the movie is the live action portion that closes the film. I imagine some will love it, I found it too sweet and "real "compared to the 80 minutes that fly by swiftly before it and it nearly crashes the film.

But these LEGOS are so well put together that the end doesn't matter. It reassembles in its closing moments for some nice final shots.

Great work from filmmakers that could have called it in, but instead chose to create a clever, enjoyable and funny movie that kids of all ages can truly enjoy.

Snapping into place very nicely, we give The Lego Movie an appreciative B.
