The Lego Movie Review

When it was first announced, I thought that The Lego Movie would just be another cynical, brainless attempt to capitalise on a recognisable property in order to wring more nostalgia money out of people. Then Warner Bros. made the smartest decision they could; they hired Phil Lord and Chris Miller to write and direct the film. Their absolutely insane approach to films, as seen in the insanity of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, felt like the best way to make this film work by just going all out with the possibilities that Lego provided. That is exactly what they did and they have created one of the best comedies that will be released this year.
