There’s a bad guy, Lord Business (Will Ferrell) who is trying to destroy the ordered Lego world where ordinary guy Emmett (Chris Pratt) lives, and he must step up to save it. Oh, and they are all made of Lego.
It’s full of cameo voice roles, great gags, pop culture references and yet I just didn’t like it that much. Perhaps it was too much of a build up. I don’t know. All I know is thank goodness for Will Arnett, because his Batman totally saved it for me. Perhaps finally I have outgrown kids films? I doubt it.
I agree, I was super pumped to see this because it seemed like another one of those animated for all-ages type films, but I was really disappointed. I don’t think it’s an outgrown thing, just not a great film – unfortunately.
I think I was expecting more because a read several positive reviews from people I generally agree with. Glad to hear I’m not alone!
