The LEGO Movie

The directors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and TV's Robot Chicken bring LEGO to life in this stop-motion-simulating adventure. Emmet (Chris Pratt) - a run of the mill, follow-the-rules, decidedly average little LEGO man - is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person ever and the key to saving the world from the evil President Business (Will Ferrell).

Emmet spends his days as one of many construction workers living repetitive, orderly lives under the reign of President Business, a crazed dictator masquerading as a benevolent ruler. When he unintentionally beats captivating stranger Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) to a mysterious object, Emmet is identified as "The Special", prophesied to defeat the evil plans of Business and his right-hand man Bad Cop/Good Cop (Liam Neeson). Drafted into a fellowship of heroes by a powerful wizard (Morgan Freeman), Emmet teams up with Wyldstyle and Batman (Will Arnett) to save the LEGO universe. Along the way they'll also encounter Green Lantern, Superman, a pirate, a (usually) cute kitty, Star Wars characters, a mystical realm known as Middle Zealand and much more.

The Danish-made plastic toys have had many spin-offs including a number of movies, though this is their first major movie release into cinemas. Animation duties were carried out by Australia's Animal Logic studio (Happy Feet, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole).

Irreverently deconstructs the state of the modern blockbuster...

Ridiculously funny and meticulously detailed... far better than a toy tie-in movie has any right to be. Despite a couple of dips, you'll be grinning throughout.

The script is witty, the satire surprisingly pointed, and the animation tactile and imaginative.

The directors seem so spooked by fears of their young audience's short attention span that some of their best touches go by in a blur.

A full-throttle, giddily inventive, all-ages joyride that buoyantly boosts the bar for 3D computer-animated movies.

A film that's insane, witty, uneven and almost certain to delight anyone who's ever laid hands on Lego.

Fun, fresh and fast. Just how we like it. The Lego Movie was billed as a family movie and I think it spoke to the 5 year old's in all of us. If you havn't already, pull up a pew and give it a watch. A well trained 3/5 from me. PS. Just a little heads up for the likes of @SHAZZAROONY and @THE_CHIHUAHUA... As a family movie, The Lego Movie was targeted...

Cute, silly, OTT and funny. Lego makes it family fun for everyone. Warners mixes it up with DC comics and makes a new superhero.

If you love one liners and aged 8, then this movie is for you. It's as inspiring as watching Arnold Schwarzenegger in Hercules! I want a life-refund.

The visual effects are absolutely outstanding, but the storyline however is a completely different story. It is really jumpy and random, however in saying so there are many hilarious moments that make anyone laugh out loud in hysteria. Overall I would not personally recommended it as it is one of those films that you rent for a cheap price instead of going...

This is the worst movie I've seen in a long time! Very predictable and it just wasn't funny...very disappointing! A 5 year old could of come up with a better storyline and more wit. The first movie in a long long time I wish I'd walked out of. I want my life back. :-O

The story is about being free to use your imagination rather than just following the instructions.It is a light movie aimed solely for Lego builders or the young.Their are a few twists in the story with some entertaining characters.

Energetic, imaginative, and hilarious. Everything in The Lego Movie is awesome. Phil Lord & Christopher Miller have created one of the smartest animated films since Toy Story 3. Emmett, voiced by Chris Pratt, is just an ordinary, generic Lego construction worker. But one day, Emmett is told that he is the most important Lego in the universe and is destined...
