It shouldn't have work. It really shouldn't. You can imagine how everyone must have reacted when it was announced there was going to be a Lego movie. They must have moaned in despair, wondering what has become of films. So it's something of a surprise that THE LEGO MOVIE has ended up being one of the best movies of the year. I just wanted to see what the fuss is all about. Yes, THE LEGO MOVIE is for children, but it's also for adults to enjoy as well.

The film centers on an ordinary Lego figure, Emmet, who soon finds himself to believe to be the prophecy that will save the Lego universe from the tyrannical Lord Business. He then embarks on a journey accompanied by the likes of Wyldstyle, Virtuvius, Benny, Princess Unikitty, and last, but definitely not least, Batman (Batman? AWESOME!!!).

As well as having a great story, THE LEGO MOVIE has so many memorable characters. You forget that they're just toy figures and are characters who the audiences can easily identify with. The voice acting is terrific, the best ones being Will Ferrell as Lord Business, Liam Nesson as Good Cop/Bad Cop (his best role in a while) and Will Arnett as Batman. I was really impress of how they build these worlds and sets that appear in this film. It was must have been such hard work getting all done to bring it to life on camera, but it certainly was worth it! If the film's song, 'Everything's Awesome', doesn't win the Best Original Song award at the next year's Oscars, I will be a monkey's uncle. Also, I thought the plot twist towards the end of the film was really clever and it does can of work in the story.

Children will enjoy THE LEGO MOVIE for it's story, characters and animation, and the adults will enjoy it for it's humor, attention to detail, culture references and heart-warming message. Believe the hype, it's AWESOME!

I, like most, was skeptical when news came that a Lego Movie was being produced. Then I discovered that the writer/directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, has also created Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, two films that I thoroughly enjoy watching. Then the trailer hit, and my interest started to peak. I still had my reservations, but I went into the movie with high hopes. I can't tell you how glad I am that I did.

Reviews have been nothing short of glowing, and while we often like to challenge their views, I completely agree with what they say. First of all, the animation. You may find it difficult to believe that you can watch a whole movie created with animated lego figures and not find it at least a little jarring. I thought that, even after five minutes of the movie had gone, but you soon get used to it and come to appreciate its unique style. I adored the sets, ranging from your stereotypical Western village to your stereotypical party resort. There was such attention to detail that you could practically look anywhere on the screen and be entertained by something (I saw Dumbledore showing off his dance skills in one scene). With regards to the 3D, it was very well done and perfectly enhanced every set and every action sequence, particularly one that involves a lego ocean.

The voice cast was utterly charming, starting with Chris Pratt, who has really come into his own as an actor. 2014 is sure to be a huge year for him. Supporting players such as Elizabeth Banks, a hilarious Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Alison Brie and Will Arnett are each very strong additions to the movie. However, it is Liam Neeson who arguably steels the show.

When I first saw the initial trailer for The Lego Movie back in November, the first thing that went through my mind was, ‘HAVE to see this!’ Let’s be honest, Lego is the most imaginative, versatile and everlasting toy EVER created. It’s been that way for generations and its global appeal will doubtless continue to stand the test of time.

Now, previous Lego animations have either been stop-motion-based shorts (i.e. ‘Monty Python & the Holy Grail…in Lego!’) or CGI feature-lengths based on various Lego Franchises (i.e. Batman, Star Wars, Bionicle etc). The Lego Movie is the first true production to be released in cinemas…and it’s a REAL work of art.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are the masterminds behind it all, and they’ve produced a story that’s not only full of humour and excitement, but also heart. The protagonist is one generic Lego Minifigure; construction worker Emmet Brickowski, who just goes about his life until accidentally stumbling upon the legendary ‘Piece of Resistance’, the one thing that can thwart the evil Lord Business’ plan to end the world. Now a target from the forces of evil, and mistaken by the elite Masterbuilders (rebelling against the evil tyrant) for being the prophesized ‘Special’, Emmet finds himself unwillingly forced into the greatest adventure of all time.

The sheer imagination of The Lego Movie is worthy of the toy it’s based on. The multitude of endless creations, worlds and possibilities spawned by Lego is somehow captured brilliantly in these 96 minutes. And there’s all manner of cameos from Lego Minifigures galore, such as William Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln, Milhouse (from The Simpsons), Michelangelo (from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Superman…the list is endless.
