The Lego Movie Review – review of the LEGO Movie 3D starring Will Ferrell. I attended an advanced screening for this Lego Movie review.
The LEGO Movie is a 3D computer animated film that features everything based on LEGO characters and creations. The main plot of the story is about a LEGO character named Emmet, who is an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as a super person and the key to saving the LEGO world. He is drafted into a quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey that is completely out of character for Emmet who is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
I was so pleasantly surprised by the entertainment value of The LEGO Movie. Even though it’s a kid’s film, it is quite entertaining. The entire film is LEGO’s. So, everything you see in the movie is made with LEGO’s as if you’re inside a child’s LEGO land creation. It’s super creative, colorful, and not a detail is missed. The LEGO characters are believable and in true character as well… imagine what your LEGO toys would say if they could talk – this is just that.
The LEGO Movie is filled with humor. It plays on the fact that it is portraying toys and builds comedic moments from that basis. From a “flowing” plastic head of hair that basically spin rotates on the LEGO head to quick costume changes that “snap” on… it’s all well thought out and portrayed humorously.
The LEGO Movie stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Chris Pratt stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an uptight CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life.
The LEGO Movie coming to Theaters February 7
