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. Haneke's third Funny Games remake?
A good Batman movie. A good superhero spoof. A good voice cast. A good extension of the lego universe. A good family film, with a good message and good jokes for all ages. This film is a lot of good things, perhaps too many. Punchlines are cut-away from mid-exclamation in the rush to get to the next joke. It's good, but a little less and it might have been great.
Pause any frame here and you're bound to be amazed at more jokes and detail than other animated films could aspire for. It also contributes to the exhaustion which accompanies the Lego films, and the action drains the energy as it does most superhero films. But its the only way this doesn't subvert the tired heroics of those franchises, in every other way a joyful, fun and self-aware love-letter to voice-spotting.
