Wanna watch something funny that you used to play with as a kid? The Lego Movie is what you want to see! Emmet (Chris Pratt) lives in a world that is run by the man everyone hates. He is known as President Business (Will Ferrel). These “Legos” are to wake up everyday and follow a set of instructions of how they are going about their day. Emmet is just your typical, idiotic construction worker. One day Emmet comes upon a special artifact that is known as the Piece of Resistance. He doesn’t think anything of this, but then he is picked up by a female who is definitely in resistance against the government. She is a very rebellious person. Her name is Wildstyle (Elizabeth Banks). Emmet is told that he is “the chosen one” and the fate of all humanity lies in his hands. It is up to Emmet to stop President Business.
The Lego Movie absolutely rises above mediocrity. This was directed by Phil Lord, who is known for 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. He does know how to make a good comedy and he does just that with The Lego Movie. It was very easy to have low expectations for this movie, not only because it consists of “Legos” running around, but also the February release date when movies are pretty much just terrible. This movie had a lot of hysterical scenes. This was a comedy and action movie that is fun for everyone.
The Lego Movie is a film that is appropriate for all ages. It has a ton of adult humor in it, but also a lot for the kids. This is a movie that you will want to watch if you are in to enjoy yourself and have a lot of laughs. This is definitely a movie that was snubbed of an Oscar Nomination. This is probably better than all the nominees for Best Animated Feature. This movie was filled with lots of action and had an unbelievable cast. Every character was voiced by a big time actor or actress. We heard the voice of Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Morgan Freeman, Charlie Day, and Alison Brie. There were much more as well.
This is a movie that really steers towards children, but almost all of the jokes are meant for adults. This was one of the funnier movies that I’ve seen as of recent. I was very into this movie while watching it. I definitely think this is a movie that you want to watch.
Overall, The Lego Movie is filled with excitement, fun, and a lot of humor. It’s absolutely the movie you want to watch one day while at home, bored.
Grade= B+ (Very Good!)
