The Lego Batman Movie Review

Ok Bat-fans…..we’re all a little bit upset about what critics are saying about the future of our franchise. Then comes this LEGO version.

But if the LEGO movie is any indication of how The LEGO Batman movie might play out then maybe this isn’t The Batman the DCEU wants right now but it’s the want IT NEEDS!!! Let’s find out!

The Plot

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: The LEGO Batman Movie. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

The Good

Everything! If you head to rotten tomatoes you’ll find that this movie has an aggregate review score of 98% which is more than The Dark Knight which scored 94%.

Not that we always trust rotten tomatoes but it is a good start for the movie.

It’s hilarious! The character voiced by Will Arnett is ridiculous and unrealistic and that’s the point of being Batman. The kids will love all the other colorful characters like Superman and The Flash who turn up, the villains especially The Joker who is voiced by Zack Galifianakis also endears to the crowd.

What’s best and works most with the LEGO film franchise is the “moral of the story” that comes at the end of the film. Let’s just say that this movie might teach the most important lesson to parents and kids about being a family.

The LEGO Batman movie is funnier than you might think it has a right to be. It’s got such a superhero action movie tone especially with the background music but then you’re totally thrown off when Batman starts to give his “dad” lessons.

The Bad

The realisation that perhaps DC should make all their superhero movies with LEGO? No No I still believe in the DCEU

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Everything is still awesome!
