When this movie was announced, I'm pretty sure the collective wails could be heard all over the world, both from our childhoods being ruined (…again - I'm looking at you Michael Bay and Battleship) and for the future of movies.
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't a horrible movie!
It has a story for the adults to follow, it's hugely bright and colourful, it's funny, and the story also, while predominately funny, has heart and a range of emotions.
For the kids it has Lego but it doesn't stop at ordinary Lego men and women, it has plenty of movie characters like Batman, Superman and My Little Pony.
There is a huge cast of actors voicing this movie, including Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams voicing the Lego versions of their Star Wars characters, and there is even some live action acting in it.
Now I didn’t see this in 3D so I couldn’t tell you what it was like or if it’s worth buying the 3D Blu-ray.
The Lego Movie is definitely worth a watch, just something to sit back and switch your brain off for 90 or so minutes, or even something to own for the kids or even yourself.
