It was a late night showing, so the theater was nearly empty. We had perfect seats, smack dab in the middle. Undoubtedly, a few other adults were thinking the same thing we were: it was the perfect time and place to unleash the inner child.
I haven’t had so much fun in a movie in a long time.
True, the Lego movie is meant for children, but if you’re a child a heart then you’ll probably love it as much as I did. It was the movie equivalent of playing with legos for hours at a time – back when a few random pieces could spontaneously become a spaceship, or a house, or a horse, or whatever you wanted it to be.
What I Loved About the Movie
It’s a fast-paced adventure with a lot of fun action-scenes. In fact, things tended to move so quickly it was almost hard to take in all the loving details the animators put into the making of the movie.
It has an excellent cast, too. Countless lovable characters made an appearance ranging from Batman to Wonderwoman to Dumbledore and Gandalf. And of course, they all worked together to make epic battle machines and flying vehicles in the same hodge-podge manner as a child playing with legos.
The music is catchy and the sound effects adorable – and not surprisingly, I came out of the movie wanting to buy a a bucket of legos. This makes me question whether the movie is a giant lego commercial, but I had so much fun watching I didn’t mind being brainwashed into wanting every Lego in existence so I could recreate the epic adventure at home.
We watched the movie in 3D, and while it’s definitely fun to see some of the effects in 3D, this is the kind of movie you could easily watch in 2D and not lose any of the quality. This is nice if you are on a budget and want to take the whole family. If you’re looking for good, clean, family-friendly fun, this is the movie to see.
Both me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed it in all its ADD glory.
