REVIEW: The LEGO Movie

An ordinary LEGO minifigure called Emmet (Chris Pratt) who is mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant, Lord/President Business (Will Ferrell), from gluing the universe together.

The film is amazing, hilarious and super creative. Not only does the film joke about lego pieces and how they are shaped and move (like Wreck-It-Ralph did with being an arcade game) but the script is witty…very witty. I especially love it when Batman (Will Arnett) tries to be realistic and says things such as about how a spaceship won’t arrive and save them then during his line a spaceship arrives and he says in his deep voice “Oh My Gosh”. Plus the film uses the both comedic parts together when the blind wizard, Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman – of course) tries to walk around corner on a ledge and falls whilst speaking. Plus, the comedy also comes from the amount of LEGO cameos that are in the film such as Dumbledore, Gandalf, Superman (Channing Tatum), Green Lantern (Jonah Hill), Han Solo and Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders) to name a few. This also leads to the amount of cameos and what a killer cast there is, apart from the ones mentioned above there is also Elizabeth Banks (who voices Wyldstyle), Liam Neeson (Good/Bad Cop), Alison Brie (Unikitty), Charlie Day (Benny) and Dave Franco.

The plot is great as the film does not just set on the LEGO city where Emmet lives but also it’s also creative and explores the different worlds that can be created with LEGO such as The Old West and Cloud Cuckcooland. Though at the beginning it went fast and I was a bit confused as to what was happening the film is funny for kids, families and adults. I highly recommend you see it otherwise you’ll be as angry as when you were younger and your amazing LEGO masterpiece fell apart or you stepped on a small red LEGO piece with your barefoot. 

The LEGO Movie: 8.0/10

Favourite Line:

Vitruvius (walking on a ledge and is about to go around a corner: Now I just walk around the corner and…

(then falls)
