The story of a nobody who saved everybody
What’s it all about?
A 3D animated film that follows the story of an everyday construction worker that haphazardly saves the Lego universe, one useless idea at a time.
The good bits.
It’s definitely not just a “toy movie”. This movie hits you right in the childhood, in a good way, while cleverly weaving in adult undertones and ambiguity. You fall head over heels in love with the main character Emmett (Chris Patt) whose can-do attitude turns him into the most unlikely of hero’s. It’s ridiculously entertaining watching him slip-up and stumble over his own feet whilst generating a motley crew of similarly unlikely sidekicks along the way. Its Genius, the voice-overs are spot on and the characterisations are ridiculously realistic and really pull on the heartstrings when they face impending doom. Its very rare that the characters are so brilliantly voiced, Elizabeth Banks and Morgan Freeman are definite standouts. To say I was excited to see this film is an understatement and it transcended every expectation.
The not so good bits
Princess Uni-Kitty is not real… much to my disappointment. I don’t think there is going to be a sequel and that is just devastating.
