Lego DC, campy fun. Ok for those that do not know, Brainiac is an evil living computer. It was built to catalog the universe, but a glitch, caused to collect the planets not just the data of the planets. Brainiac is defeated by the Justice League and comes up with a new plan. It sends Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Superman to different times. Batman and Flash go to rescue them. Superman is sent to the future, were Batman meets 3 members of the Legion of Superheros. At present time, Cyborg get help fighting Brainiac, from Supergirl. She is cheerleader and keeps up the cheers during the battle. Lot of campy action and lines.
Another fantastic adventure for the Justice League. These movies have built up quite a history over the last 3 movies, each time offering a safe, kid-friendly adventure that my kids can enjoy. This movie is no different, with a fun plot that takes Batman and Flash through time. Great voice acting as usual, great humor, and just a fun adventure. (This movie also omitted the "hey look at this set you can buy" scenes that occasionally found their way into the past movies)
"The LEGO Movie" got me hooked on LEGO stuff, which is a pity because it seems LEGO and DC have been coming up with some pretty cute specials along with some exclusive minifigurines before "Everything is Awesome" became a jingle. Make no mistake, these stories are meant for children of all ages, just like LEGO bricks. They're corny. They're cheesy. They play up on certain stereotypes, like making Supergirl a super-cheerleader. But they still manage to keep the story going, so if you're a fan of all things LEGO, this is the kind of movie you should get. And that's especially the case with the exclusive minifigurine of Cosmic Boy that comes with the video. You can't get that if you stream the video on demand.
This LEGO take on the DC Universe continues to amuse. I am constantly surprised how these characters are reimagined in the LEGO world. They never miss a chance to make Batman come off as a humorless stuffed shirt which is part of the humorous nature of the entire series. For those of us who know the DC Universe well these LEGO renditions are like the cherry on the sundae.
I bought this for my son and was not disappointed. The movie teaches kids that even people as different as Superman and Batman can work together and become super friends! Great use of the other Lego Justice characters as well though they could give a better role to Cyborg in these. The main bad guy this time is Braniac and he is hilarious. Loved seeing Lego introduce future heroes the League as well! Recommended for fans of Lego Super Heroes!
