A super movie about, you guessed it, Lego.
I went to go and watch it with my mother and two siblings because my super younger brother had read about it in his issue of Toxic magazine. I was somewhat dubious because, what the heck, its a movie about lego. Usually movies about components (think of Bionicle – which, funnily enough, is another branch of lego) aren’t very good, but my expectations were smashed when I watched the Lego movie.
And the story was deceptively simple, but it had undercurrents of realism; it contained themes about conformity and originality – going against ‘the instructions’.
With plenty of comedy to keep you chuckling, this is a fantastic movie for children and adults alike.
It also has a lot to say about imagination, too. A super cast, a super script and a fantastic visual experience. I saw it in 3D but I think it was more about enhancing the background and making the lego characters seem real rather than adding to the bountiful viewing experience. Written by the pair who brought you Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs 1 and 2, this is worth a watch.
A top-class cast, including Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum and Morgan Freeman, this is a fantastic film.
MY RATING: 5 / 5.
