To save his world, Emmet must team up with some of the most skilled Master Builders and travel throughout dangerous instruction-filled lands in order to complete his dangerous mission. Can Emmet and the other LEGO master builders stop Lord Business’s plan before it’s too late?
My Thoughts: When I first saw the previews for this film a few months ago, I was sure it was going to be another really silly and bad movie, but after reading some extremely positive reviews, I was interested. After a bit more investigation, I was getting more excited and was hoping to see it over my school’s February vacation. I went to see it on Saturday, and I ended up being very entertained and loved it!
The story is about an ordinary Lego figure named Emmet, who is mistaken for an amazing special hero that was going to rise against the evil Lego President with a plan to end the world in only a matter of days (cue dramatic music!) He ends up traveling through different Lego worlds with some very, um, interesting characters, hoping to succeed on his dangerous mission. Throw in some cool graphics, cheesy moments, weird, but funny jokes, and a cast of hilarious characters, and you have a movie worth seeing! Oh, and of course, I can’t forget the very annoying, but catchy and addictive song that is played throughout the movie. (Everything is Awesome!)
Emmet was a very entertaining protagonist, and he even had all sorts of funny ideas, (the double-decker couch!) He made all sorts of fun jokes, and I also liked how he was awkward, but still a little sweet. Wyldstyle was another great character, (she had such cool style!) and I loved the moment at the end with her and Emmet, (I don’t want to ruin it for you though!) All of the supporting and main characters were hilarious, but the best one out of all of them was Unkitty!!!! I mean, how can you not love this adorable face…
Anyways, I was very interested to see how the movie would be designed; would it be exactly like LEGOs, but more computerized? It turns out that the graphics were designed to look like LEGO toys, (they even made the water and fire look like the little plastic pieces), but it was amazing to see all the detail. The action scenes were especially cool, but I also liked to see the differences between each themed LEGO world that Emmet and the others traveled too.
Overall, this was an entertaining and funny movie that I would see again and give 4 and a half stars out of five.
Have an awesome week,
