The Lego Movie is the first movie by the Lego franchise (it's already predicted there could be a sequel). The movie follows Emmet (Chris Pratt) an average blend in and his team of ‘mega builders’ on an adventure to stop President Business from ending the world.
It is a fresh look into children’s animation that no adult should mind going along to watch. It is full of familiar Lego characters, accessories and universes. You definitely don’t have to be a fan of the little bricks to enjoy the film.
Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have impressed me again, mostly with their attention to detail down to even the water and smoke being made of Lego parts.
There are a lot of well-known voices and faces in this movie including Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman and Will Ferrell. Liam Neeson especially impressed me with his distinctive double personality ‘bad cop’ and ‘good cop’ with ‘bad cop’ showing Neeson’s usual tough guy act we all know and love.
The producers and Lego franchise have struck gold with this money making machine. It has brilliant displays of new and old toys that kids will be nagging their parents for weeks after to buy them the minifigures and spaceships.
I highly recommend this movie it has great animation and tons of humour with some touching moments. You will be leaving the cinema singing the very infectious song ‘Everything is Awesome’ somewhat ironically because everything about this movie is just that, AWESOME.
The Lego Movie is in cinemas now.
