“The Lego Movie”

301133id1g_LEGO_Final_Rated_27x40_1Sheet.inddFRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE REVIEW: Last night, I got to see a very relatable, fun movie called “The Lego Movie” which stars Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation, Her), Will Ferrel (Anchorman, Step Brothers), Will Arnett (Hot Rod, Arrested Development), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Alison Brie (Community, The Five-Year Engagement), Morgan Freeman (Bruce Almighty, Now You See Me), Liam Neeson (Taken, Batman Begins), Nick Offerman (The Kings of Summer, We’re the Millers), Jadon Sand (Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph), Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, White House Down), Jonah Hill (Moneyball, The Wolf of Wall Street), Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Batman), and many other famous people. This movie is set in a world where everything is built of legos and the story revolves around a plain, ordinary construction lego named Emmet (Pratt) who finds a red piece known as “the Piece of Resistance.” When he touches it, he sees visions of their ruler Lord Business (Ferrel) and his master plans of destroying the lego world by making it perfect with a weapon known as the Kragle. The piece gets stuck to him and he then gets hunted down by Lord Business’s police force, with the leader of it being Bad Cop (Neeson) because he is the “Special” since he found the piece as told by the prophecy by Vitruvius (Freeman) eight years ago. The prophecy states that the Special will stop Lord Business’s plans of a world going by the instruction manual and save the “Master Builders” who build whatever they want out of random pieces. Emmet is found by a very trained builder known as Wildstyle and they go to find Vitruvius as well as the “Master Builders” to formulate a plan to stop Lord Business. I thought this movie was very enjoyable with the plot being good, the acting being great (so many famous people), the animation being very good, and I also liked how they incorporated my two favorite DC superheros, Green Lantern (Hill) and Superman (Tatum), and made them a funny pair. The cons of this movie would have to be that I didn’t laugh at a lot of the jokes that they were trying to make and the water, that was stop motion probably to make it look like legos, was hard to look at. Other than those I definitely recommend this to any kid and any lego or previous lego lover! FINAL SCORE: 88%= Juicy Popcorn
