A bit of fun
on 28 April 2014
I thought this was a bit of a giggle. If you're familiar with the Star Wars lego short films this is more of the same. It's played mainly for laughs, some of the gags work well, some not so well but it rolls along at such a pace there's no time to dwell on it.
The film is good clean fun for youngsters and there's enough in jokes for the slightly more mature viewer. These include nice nods to the 60's and 90's versions of Batman and Robin, in fact Danny Elfmans theme music from Tim Burtons Batman flick kicks it all off to brilliant effect. John Williams Superman score gets an airing as well later on and most of the fun comes from seeing Bats, Supes and the rest of the Justice League united onscreen. The Flash, Martian Manhunter etc etc, they're all here. If you prefer the dark side then you get the Joker, Riddler, Lex Luthor, Poison Ivy, Bane and more.
Overall worth a watch (especially as it's on Prime at the moment). Perhaps breaking out the blocks yourself might be even more fun though.
