Emmet, an ordinary, perfectly average LEGO minifigure, lives a mundane existence as a lonely construction worker. When an evil LEGO tyrant threatens to destroy the LEGO universe as a whole, by gluing it together, a prophecy is foretold of a extraordinary MasterBuilder, who Emmet is mistaken for. Together with a group of other selected heroes, the hopelessly under-prepared Emmet must begin an epic quest to save the LEGO Universe. Phil Lord & Christopher Miller's The Lego Movie is a fun experience that is constantly entertaining due to its assortment of sharp and witty dialogue. The actual story that the movie is based around is pretty standard stuff but the script of The Lego Movie keeps it constantly fresh, slightly off-beat, and fun. The Lego Movie is the perfect example of a movie that could be enjoyed by all audiences because it's simple and silly enough to keep children entertained while also being smart, sassy, and satirical enough to keep adult audiences engaged. The voice talent in The Lego Movie is diverse and well-selected, with Will Arnett really stealing much of the film with his hysterical version of Batman. The Lego Movie's greatest strength is the imagination it exudes, with lots of creative ideas centered around the vast LEGO universe. This creativity combined with its sharp script make The Leg making it one of the better four quadrant movies to come out in recent years.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
