My nephew and I, both Lego fans, went to this movie and were amazed with the production! Lots of humor, great visuals, ya gotta love Will Ferrell, and it certainly appeals to everyone.
The message at the end was magnificent!

At first I was wow, this is really awful. But it all came together, and I actually really enjoyed taking my two boys aged 6 & 7. Monumental Americana but somewhat enjoyable by the end, and the "Every thing is Awesome" soundtrack will be the latest brain worm, like it or not.

Way too much going on all at once. The graphics & special effects are amazing but all the colors & movement are a bit too much of a good thing.
The live character part at the end was sweet. Would have been nice to introduce that part earlier & work it into the story line.

I waited a long time to take my autistic song to the movies, he enjoys the Play Station Lego games so I thought he would like this. I showed him the trailer and he gave it the nod of approval. However, it was too intense for him and he asked to leave within a half hour. I teach young children and I was surprised how violent this movie was. Violence is still violence no matter how tiny the toys are. The evil implied and the intensity if the action in terms of the violence is a real concern in regards to the impact it has on young growing minds. No surprise that we wonder where the increase in violence comes from in our society, and that children are shooting each other? This movie was full of destruction and shooting, repeatedly. I was truly disappointed. Why can't a creative, innovative movie be made without this level of destruction and mayhem? This is not imagination, this is a commercial bailout. Thumbs down to Warner brothers and Legos.

I didn't find this to be entertaining at all. The few incidents of humor were overshadowed by a tired storyline with visuals to make anyone with ADHD a happy camper. The production seemed to be a mix of stop motion and CGI throughout with a touch of live action at the end. The film seemed more like a catalog of encapsulated Marvel/WB/Disney franchises aimed at youngsters and their parents for a payoff at the big box toy store.
