This week I took my sons (5, 7, & 10) to see The Lego Movie. It was a fun movie. The characters were surprisingly engaging. The dialog was really funny, and Morgan Freeman’s work was very entertaining. All of my kids enjoyed it, though the youngest started to get bored toward the end, which may tell you the length of time required to sit in a theater is a little much for younger kids.
I won’t spoil the movie, but stick to your vow of not promising to cry from a Will Ferrell movie and you’ll be fine. You should also watch The Matrix again. This implies there is a lack of originality in the story, but what do you expect from a company that makes its money from spoofing other forms of popular entertainment.
All in all, it’s a very fun movie. I laughed, I didn’t cry (barely), and it became a part of me.
Would I buy The Lego Movie on Blu-Ray? Probably.
