I admit, I thought this movie would be horrible, based on the commercials. But I walked out of the theatre pleasantly surprised. It was quite good! The humor was interesting; they’d make a joke that was obviously aimed at six year olds, then come back thirty seconds later and surprise you with something quite clever. There were some great pop-culture references and funny things hidden in the background; a fine eye would pick out amusing details. Not to mention some nice satire (the song “Everything is Awesome” obviously poking fun at how generic and shallow a lot of pop music is). The storyline overall seemed rather “loose” and yes, sometimes cheesy, but it still somehow worked because that is how one plays with legos: in a loose, imaginative fashion. One thing I thought was really good was the animation. It all looked like real legos!
Overall I thought it was a really good movie, a lot better than you’d expect.
If anyone else has seen this movie, what did you think?
