In an age of grotesquely overblown blockbusters, there's something fun about doing their maximalism on a miniature scale, of making all the explosions a rain of tiny plastic blocks. Don't all action films, if done right, feel like children at play? But this is also the sort of movie whose brand of cleverness I resent. Is pastiche, tribute, and self-parody the best we can do? How about building some myths of our own?
Boy, was this fun. Best Batman movie since The Dark Knight Rises. It totally outstays its welcome, but I still had a blast knowing all the fun facts and geeking out over the details while laughing out loud at all the gags. Children and true Batman fans will have the most fun. All others need not apply.
What seems to be a big fan service turns out to be a somewhat enjoyable ride through reference, filled but not limited to, comedic style that drags to much to be a good movie from beginning to end. The first act was a breeze to watch and a pretty good one at that, followed by continuously lack of jokes and overall originality. Oh and there's a hole thing about family and relations and stuff.. you know... for plot.
Not so cool as i expected but it has its laughable moments. In the first half is very enjoyable but after a while,things feels repetitive and not funny anymore, kinda annoying. 6 out of 10. I was expecting more from my favorite superhero but all i got insted was selfishness.
Yes the themes of the movie is hammered home big time but that was fine by me because it's a good lesson for kids and grown ups and the film is so earnest and enjoyable that they get a pass on that. Nice inside jokes movie nerds and long time comic book fans, a really delightful movie.
Possibly one of the best adaptations of Batman and Bruce Wayne put to screen, not at all light on the dark psychology just because it's aimed at kids. The really striking element of this film is the incredible cinematography and animation. Characters faces show a strangely wide range of emotion - I'm totally down for a serious film done with Lego.
