When I purchased tickets for this movie, I figured that mainly the kids would enjoy it & it'll just be 90 minutes of blah. This was not the case! The Lego Movie is hands down, the best movie of 2014 so far & that's saying something! Absolutely a sleeper hit for me. I loved it!

Review of The LEGO Movie
By L.N. (age 7)
The LEGO Movie *****
I went to the Lego movie once before and it was very good! It is a very good movie for kids. Kids will love it. I went with my family. By the way, have you seen the Lego movie before? Yes or no?
Why You Can Go See it?
You should go see it because after you know what it’s like, you can tell your friends if they have never seen it. So your friends can tell the other people.
What You Should Buy There
Before the movie you should buy candy, popcorn and a drink like apple juice or a Shirley Temple ? yum, yum, yummy!
Where It Is
The movie theatre is in New York City but I can’t remember what street it is on. So… I am sorry that I forgot what street it is on.
Who I Went With
I went with my family. I have an older sister and a younger sister. And of course my mom and dad.

The movie moves along pretty well with laughs, big and small conceived throughout. Interestingly though, there is a lot of violence for an animation flick about toys intended primarily for small children. I guess thats because the plot line includes the imagination of a young boy, bent on destruction and hero worship.

The general premise of the film was good. The animation was done beautifully and the imagination throughout the entire piece was well-done. Strewn in were subtle jokes that had me laughing out loud. The real test were my 5 and 6 year old. My 5 year old who operates with an active imagination and is a die-hard Lego warrior, was entertained but definitely confused. My 6 year old was entertained but didn't make any mention of it after the film. We even tried singing "Everyone is Awesome!" - to no avail. My biggest complaint is that the wrap up with Will Farrell should have started off the film. We wouldn't have lost anything. Instead of being confused by how random things were throughout the film, we could have had some tiny insight into this being inside the mind of a creative child. Also, really guys on casting all these Vanilla people? Arnett - fabulous, Liam Neeson - superb...but the rest of your A-team cast, would have been better served with some talented unknown voice artists.

Overall a great movie. Probably not so for kids younger then 8 yrs old.
Adults and older kids will definitely get all the nuances since it parodies all the best action movies.
Would see it again.
