Review
For many of you who have once had a childhood obsession with making LEGO. Although some of the people may not take the movie too kindly, after seeing it as very undistinguished and bad due to the over hype that this film is perhaps unworthy of in the eyes of some viewers. They do not deliver the message about THE LEGO MOVIE properly, it is meant to be an uphill comedy of non-stop laughing proportions. It actually has being extraordinary in using CGI to disguise as it was made in stop-motion out of LEGO bricks. While not caring of THE LEGO MOVIE for its meaningful and simple story, I actively care about it spoofs any plot cliché in the book like the good vs evil and so forth.

The selective range of the voice cast takes the top prime without becoming theatric or into the pallid expressions. The best that stole the show Liam Neeson who makes the hammy routine out of the "good or bad cop", do not get me wrong with the old saying. Will Arnett makes the fun in the LEGO version of Batman by having him as egotistical out of his dark nature. Christian Bale is out there in the audience and would be pleased with this interpreted dark knight compared with his own in the Nolan movie adaptations.

I frankly perceive THE LEGO MOVIE as humorous and refreshing to tell a child's dream of a world made entirely out of LEGO that the wish had finally came true. As long as every viewer should know that everything is awesome just like the song of the film says. This film isn't made to be in a forced financial gain in the movie theatres. Many of you will watch this feature and reminisce about the good old days as a child playing with the toy brand, I think people will find this movie wittier and different to TOY STORY (click here).

Forget playtime, you'll be seeing an all-aged accessible film which should appeal to all you LEGO collectors in your adulthood.

Star rating: (9/10) Excellent Movie
