The Lego Movie Review


The Lego Movie was released and yes I saw it despite not having a kid to take with me as cover. The movie is 1 hour and 40 minutes long. It is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The story and screenplay are by Phil Lord, Dan Hageman, Kevin Hageman, and Christopher Miller.


Story Line: The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet (Voice – Chris Pratt), an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average Lego minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He mistakenly finds the piece of resistance while checking out the cute girl, Wyldstyle (Voice – Elizabeth Banks) He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers including Batman (Voice – Will Arnett) and Vitruvius (Voice – Morgan Freeman) on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant known as Lord Business/President Business/The Man Upstairs (Voice – Will Ferrell), a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously unprepared.


My Thoughts: The movie destroyed the box office by grossing 69 million opening weekend and is already slated for a sequel. It also has an annoying but charming song that is now my ringtone and I find myself randomly singing it. You can listen to the song in the video at the end of the post. 


The movie is a great movie and can be watched by everyone. I highly recommend it. It was well written and had clean lines visually. The story is simple but funny as Emmet tries to stop the villain from releasing the Kragle that will permanently freeze all the Lego citizens. The moment you figure out what the Kragle is and the Piece of Resistance you cannot help but to laugh out loud. 


The movie has a great message about working together, never giving up, and it is okay to be different. The best part of the movie is when you see the real humans behind the Lego land and it makes you stop and look at who you are and how you are treating those around you. 


This movie is star packed and here is the list of voices you may hear and know you know who that is but just cannot seem to place it. Jonah Hill as Green Lantern, Keegan Michael Key as Forman Jim, Liam Neeson as Bad Cop/Good Cop, Shaquille O’Neal as Shaq (yes he has a cameo), Channing Tatum as Superman, and Billy Dee Williams as Lando because anyone else would be disrespectful.


Check the movie out and share your thoughts in the comments.

  2. Films which are streamed direct to our Apple iPad will need to be from a powerful app which doesn't spend time buffering and interrupting our movie experience. We need to be certain about what we want to get from the app before we decide to pay for it and as always, make sure we read the reviews.free movies online

  3. You go ahead with your own decision whether to sit in your own one of a kind unwinding seat, lay on your most loved lounge chair, or killing the lights, and there it goes; you get your own special uproarious silver screen arranged.Galaxy movie showtime
