Really funny and interesting story. Will Arnet and Charlie Day provide perfect voices and there were some great cameo appearances by all kinds of well known characters.... Spaceship!!!
I've been waiting to see this movie for a while now, and I got to say that it didn't disappoint. I thought that Phil and Chris did an amazing job with the script. Their last two movies, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street turned out to be surprisingly great movies and this movie does not ruin their perfect track record. There were plenty of funny and clever lines. I guess a lot of the humor could be what people may call "dumb" humor, but I think this movie does dumb humor in a smart way if that makes any sense. Plus, this type of humor fits in well with an animated children's movie. Though, despite being a "kids movie" this movie can definitely appeal to everyone. Story wise, I thought the pacing was great. I can't really think of a dull moment in this film. Without giving away any spoilers, this movie also had a really touching moment towards the end that, in my opinion, brought this goofy kids movie to a whole new level. Think something along the lines of How to Train Your Dragon or Wreck-it-Ralph. This movie definitely ranks up there with those two as some of my favorite animated movies. Visually, I thought the movie looked amazing. The sets were all detailed, colorful and looked even better in motion. Their use of a blend of stop motion and CGI animation gave this movie a very distinct and visually appealing look. This is the way a Lego movie should look. TL;DR "everything is awesooooooome!" :)
awful plot, wonderful job. congratulations to the people responsible on creating the animation, bad job to those who created the history
I didn't think I woild enjoy this movie, but I absolutely loved it!
To conclude: everything is awesome.
El trabajo de animación es fantástico. La historia no me había convencido realmente, la notaba un poco boba, pero al final realmente me conmovió, ese trasfondo padre-hijo sin duda le da un giro a la película que hace que suba la calificación que originalmente le iba a dar. Es una película graciosa, muy para niños pero también muy para adultos, es decir, disfrutable para cualquier edad. Y la canción "Everything is awesome" realmente me encantó, no la podía sacar de mi cabeza.
Comedy value was weak and uninteresting. Animation was good, but the movie was overall annoying. Disappointed.
Not sure who this film is aimed at, adults who like lego I guess? My kids found it weird and didnt get the references, I just found it dull.
Far more fun than the concept really had any right to be, braving new horizons while still remaining loyal to the beating heart of the product and its passionate generations of fans.
Simply enough, this is a perfect encapsulation of the kind of imagination, enthusiasm, adaptation and sheer randomness that runs like lifeblood through the spirit of a happy childhood. It jabs in delightfully unexpected directions. It bends physics without an explanation (nor a need for one). It casually hops from one licensed fantasy to another, mashing Green Lantern with Gandalf, and doesn't even slow down to consider the repercussions.
At the best of times, I felt like I was a kid again myself, lost in nostalgia and the infinite potential locked away within every new block. And while the last act overreaches in an effort to really hammer the morals home, otherwise this is pretty much a direct hit. Crafty, funny writing, a dazzling array of vocal talent and a playful, distinct visual style - this is the kind of family film I can always make room for.
We used to build a huge city out of Legos, and then rain fire on it with marbles when the parents left...ahhhhhhh the 80's were a better time
It was surprisingly really good! At least as good as it can be while still keeping younger audiences in mind. When I saw the trailer for this movie I thought it looked kinda shitty, but then the reviews started coming out. So I saw it more out of an obligation than anything but I'm glad that I saw it because it was very enjoyable.
I did not expect to be barraged with such dystopian social commentary right off the bat, but it's those clever little statements about society that allows people other than children to enjoy the movie. And not only that, but it made so much sense how they orchestrated those statements about individualism, bringing back nostalgic images of Lego instruction manuals that the character carries around with him. Now I'm not the biggest fan of Lego as a franchise. I mean, to me the video games just seem like a really easy way to save money on animation, but the animation in this film was fan-fucking-tastic.
Objects and characters would mostly have a lower frame rate to imitate stop-motion style, and because all of it actually was computer-animated, they had a lot more freedom as to what they were able to do, particularly with the facts in camera placements and most noticeably during the action scenes. But not only did it just imitate stop motion as a style; a clever decision was made to keep certain depths out of focus at any given time, and by doing so it instantly reminds you of those old Lego camera sets. The movie didn't really leave too much room for emotional investment, but I don't really think that I tried to. It pretty much knew exactly what it was and it tried hard to avoid falling into clichés that you would normally expect, and the writing made it clear that they were aware of these clichés that they were intentionally avoiding.
It's funny, entertaining and it feels somewhat unique. And yes, I'm aware that it is basically just one giant ad for a toy company, but this movie is the best Lego commercial I have ever seen
All I can say is: I should've watched it sooner. I started to watch it a little bit skeptical but found myself laughing at the jokes and rooting for Emmet throughout his journey. A definitely pleasant surprise.
Hahaha Batman is so funny. "I only work in black and sometimes very, very dark grey" lol.
I wasn't expecting much, and it was what I expected.It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. Fun for kids, too silly for adults.
There are many more beautifull, age transcending movies out there to watch with your kids (or solo.) Only 4 or 5 jokes made me smile, all others were pretty lame or cliche. I guess when this movie would have been unknown and stayed in obscurity, it would've been fun to recommend. But with the massive amount of 'fans' this one is getting, it surely is greatly overrated.
Batman is easily the favourite from the movie, and the fun poking at Green Lantern was a funny inside joke.
I really had high hopes for this film but I found it really boring and just meh. Especially when it turned out it was just a kid playing with his Dad's Lego. It was like having a 'it was all just a dream' ending. But some scenes of the father and the kid were sweet. The only good thing about the film is EVERYTHING IS AWESOME which will be stuck in my head for the next week.
The story was very good but the problem at this movie, no one tell at the start of the movie, the action was happend on a businessman house, and her children was playing with her lego.
Finally decided to watch it. I must say that I really liked it. The part where the real world mixes with the fantasy was a nice addition.
If I was to tell you things I hate in comedies, in movies, then I would be telling you pretty much every thing this movie is made from. But somehow in this movie it's done in a way that can be described using no word other than "brilliant".
This is an amazing movie. So much fun from start to finish. Everything, even the types of jokes and scenes I loathe - this movie made them in a way that I loved.
It's brilliant. Everything about it.
A great light-hearted fun watch. Everything about it really is awesome.
On its face The Lego Movie looks like an over commercialized advertisement for Lego toys. But it actually addresses some interesting issues, such as individuality, creativity verse conformity, and the nature of play. The story follows a Lego construction worker named Emmet who gets swept up into the Master Builder rebellion that's attempting to resist the tyranny of Lord Business, who's obtained a secret weapon that could mean the end of the Lego World. The film does an impressive job at mixing in the different Lego series, and at reflecting the impact that the pop cultural has had. Starring Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell, and Morgan Freeman, the casting is extraordinarily good. Plus, the comedy is hysterical, and works for all age levels. And the animation is amazing, featuring an incredible amount of detail and color. More than the sum of its parts, The Lego Movie is a heartwarming and imaginative film that the whole family can enjoy.
If you were a Lego builder, you might like the imaginative take on your own imaginative endeavours. If you are a pop culture junkie, you will like the wide variety of characterizations. If you are a movie fan, you won't be disappointed by this cast and their voice work. I think the movie deserves props for its CGI, creative visual imagination, pop culture characterizations and voice work. But I felt they overreached trying to turn "You Are Special" into a transformative moral and I found the cutesy factor wore thin as the movie dragged on. I watched this in preparation for its sequel, which opens later today, to see if it would be worth seeing in a theatre. It fell a little flat for me and there was nothing there to interest me in a sequel. I give this film a 6 (fair) out of 10. [Adventure Animation]
Really fun movie with lots of laughs especially for cinefiles because it has a lot of historic charcaters and popculture references, all voice work is great.
The visuals are very unique and look fantastic. The voice acting is all top notch. The story and characters are all a lot of fun, especially all the cameos. And it has a super catchy song. Can't wait to see the second part.
Synopsis: Emmet is just an average guy. He lives his life by the same routine every day, and always follows the instructions. One day, a weird mishap leads to him being declared The Special: the one person who can stop the evil President Business' dastardly plan of unleashing the Kragle on the entire world. The only problem is: There doesn't appear to be anything special about Emmet. Will he be able to save all his fellow citizens regardless?
The Good: This movie is a wonder to behold. The animation really brings inanimate Lego bricks to life, and the humor and pop culture references are spot-on. It also brings home an excellent moral: that everyone is special and valuable, no matter who they are. All in all, a wonderful flick.
The Bad: Nothing, really.
Conclusion: Me and Lego blocks have an interesting history. My mom got me some Lego sets as a kid, but, I had trouble manipulating the small pieces due to coordination issues. I had a good friend at church who loved those building blocks so much, he dressed up as a Lego for Halloween. Toward the end of my high school days, I had fun playing Lego Star Wars on my Nintendo GameCube; since then, I've had a blast with Lego's TV series, ranging from their comedic take on Lucas' space opera to Ninjago. I've been meaning to watch this flick for a while, but just recently got around to it; it was just as good as I expected and then some. If you haven't seen this yet...what are you waiting for? Go rent or stream it, now!
I went into this movie with high expectations because of the glowing review. It was my son's first experience in the theater so I was hoping that it would be extra special. Long story short, it was. The first 90% of the movie was pretty amusing. To be honest with you I thought it could have been even funnier than it was (some of the dialog was mediocre). But the end... fantastic. It almost rivaled the end of Toy Story 3. I didn't see that coming at all and it was perfectly done.

extremely fun family friendly All Star mashup of Lego characters I mean you got Superman Batman Gandalf the Grey and space guy this movie is just crazy fun
Trakt's rating system makes me round my 6.3, so 6 it is.
It's cheesy, and that's OK. There are enough subtle references and social commentaries to hold interest, and the animation style is quite interesting.
What ultimately ruined the film's tone was the reveal of the real Mr. Business (the kid's dad), and the fact that the entire plot was actually the little boy screwing around with his dad's models. That blew away any small amounts of emotional investment I had in the characters.
hope add some more cameo for the second.
A well made film with all the bits and pieces assembled to make a fun watch.
My favorite movie. Makes me laugh and cry every time.
As a big fan of Legos as well as action movies and after reading / hearing only positive things about it, I was sure that I would love "The Lego Movie". However, after actually watching it, I was a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, I think its a good animated action movie and I had fun watching it. None the less I had higher expectations for it, which I cannot put into words. Something was just wrong (or missing?) for me to give it more than a 7 / 10 or call it a great movie...
Everything is awesooooooooooooooooome! SPACESHIP SPACESHIP SPACESHIP! :D
Rather silly and weak stylistically, but a great animation work, and a pure delight for fans of Lego!
An absolute must-see, consistently entertaining from start to finish.
Fun movie to watch with the kids! Sort of The Matrix meets The Superfriends meets The Neverending Story ... sorta.
"Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you're part of a team! Everything is awesome when we're living our dream!" ... If you don't end up getting that song stuck in your head by the end of the movie, you're not human! BTW Amazing movie!!
Wild hair re-watch on cable at the In-Laws' lake house. - "I feel something inside. IT'S LIKE THE OPPOSITE OF HAPPINESS!!!"
I actually enjoyed this. Was the election of my sister but it was good, entertaining and creative (not so much with the plot but still), it reminded me when I was a kid and played with Legos, I always built batmobiles and stuff about Batman haha. By the way, I hated that song of "everything is awesome".
Surprisingly everybody was right about this. It was genuinely a fantastic movie, and even though I didn't like the trailers or promo material, the comedy really worked in the actual film.
How did I get here? This was just a bad idea.
everything is awesomee lol song got stuck in my head funny and great family movie
Everything is awesome in this movie! (I know, is a easy joke, hate myself, I'm not special, that's right, another easy joke, I can do this forever!)
It is easy to be cynical and see this as one long advertisement for Lego and it is! Yet taking the film on its own merits, the filmmakers celebrate the creativity, fun and imagination that Lego inspires, especially from children, with a plot that is both ridiculous yet perfectly in keeping with a child's imagination and reminiscent of the opening scenes to the Toy Story sequels writ large over 90 minutes. Most of the set pieces and humour work very well for both adults and children, with Batman standing out as a favourite, and the themes of the film are made manifest in a surprising real world twist that is both touching and perfectly judged. It takes a rare advert that can entertain for this long.
w h e r e a r e m y p a n t s ?
Really good movie, pretty funny not quite what i expected
Everything is awesome! What an original movie. Loved it!
"Everything is awesome!" This is one of the most delightful movies I've ever seen. Creative and smart, there's no way that someone wouldn't love it.
Since "Lord Business" pretty much were the LEGO version of "The Man Upstairs", does that mean that the kid was forced to listen to "everything is awesome" by his father?
Everything is awesome!!! Everything is awesome!!! Everything is awesome!!!
Funny movie. Great for the whole family. Adults will enjoy it as well.
This movie was fun until near the end where I wasn't sure anymore if these Lego characters we're actually real, or just some boys' imagination in his dad's office. That bit ruined the ENTIRE movie for me.
Why ruin such a awesome universe then bitchslaping your viewers by going.. "HA!! You thought this was a real, didn't you? Well guess what I'll Mind funk you some more by making the Lego protagonist move when placed on Will Ferrel's desk just to confuse you more!!! Is it the boys imagination or is it real???"
QUE THE X-FILES SONG!!!
I just have one thing to say: EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! LOL really great movie.
I thought that was great. The movie was really funny, but the thing that really got me was the emotional stuff. It really threw me tugged the feels. I also really liked how Batman totally 100% saved the day all the time for everyone. Also Billy Dee Williams.
Everything is awesome! Hilarious.
It is awesome when we watch an animated film that is for all ages! I doubt there is any adult who does not like this.
The LEGO Movie is a super creative, entertaining and very well done film even on the smallest detail of all. Visually amazing! You just wanna jump into the screen and see how that world is!
I never played with Lego when I was a child, my thing always was more Barbies haha but the truth is that when you leave the theatre you just wanna go to the nearest store who has Lego and buy it for you to play with. And that's the magic of this film!
With and heartwarming touch and a good moral. You are never too old to be inventive or creative, you just have to never loose the child that theres inside of you and continue to play throughout life with all your heart.
45 mins of AWESOMENESS and then I fell asleep. -___-
Well, frankly I was expecting a bit more. But it is a really fun movie. The EVERYTHING IS AWESOME music is one of that kind of music that will stick to the back of your brain, and will play in loop for weeks.
wow. i took my 2 tween daughters and their friends to see this. EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!! and dark and brooding and dark again....we all had a blast. i could not figure out for the life of me what the kragle was then was like "riiiightttt" at the big reveal. there's nothing deep about this movie. there is a loose message at the end but its just meant to be a big romp through a lego world. sit back and just enjoy yourself on this one, whether or not youre a lego fan.
If you dont like this movie then you have no soul! It was funny, highly imaginative and hugely enjoyable.
Everything is awesome!
