The LEGO Movie, seen in theaters

Even though this was advertised as a children’s movie, the trailers made it seem hilarious for all ages so I was very eager to see it. We waited and went to a weeknight evening showing, and effectively avoided the mobs of children. There were literally ten people in the theater with us.
Much like the trailers display, the dialog is one witty punch line after another. At first the plot seemed a little… childish and I was worried it might be going nowhere. Then I was confused and actually had to ask my husband what the “relic” was. I was only seeing the story from the LEGO’s perspective and was missing the big picture. Once he filled me in, I saw the story from a whole new aspect. There is even a surprise twist toward the end.
The computer animation is so amazing you’ll find yourself wondering if they made it with stop-motion animation (I checked, they did not). If you are into the 3D movies, I would recommend spending the extra money and seeing it in 3D. We did not, because I just don’t like the 3D movies. But this one would have been cool to see.
The movie also has a moral to it, which is rare in movies these days. So I highly suggest taking your kids. The LEGO Company definitely knew what they were doing when they made this one. From a certain angle you could argue the movie was nothing but a giant commercial. But it was a pretty darn good commercial if you ask me.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
