About the Movie
The first-ever full-length theatrical LEGO movie follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO mini figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As a rule, movies about toys need to be approached with extreme caution; some of them have been bad enough to count as health hazards. This one is the exception.
Fresh: The movie is a wonderful surprise, cleverly written and executed brick by brick with a visual panache.
Fresh: Lord and Miller's sensibilities are continually clever, and The Lego Movie works hard to gradually deliver surprising payoffs to what seem to be throwaway bits.
Fresh: The Lego Movie has enough wit and wisdom to send a recession-age message to families on the importance of thinking through problems with creativity.
A Smart and Genius Adventure For All Ages
When I frist Heard about a Lego Movie, I knew it would be just another way to sell their products. But also it could be interesting beacuse with Legos, you can do anything with them and make an cool adventure out of them. So my mind was going in 50/50 for what Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Directors of 21 Jump Street and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) can pull into these tiny little guys. What I got was an film that not only one of the best Nostalgia Fell films of all time, but was also smart and funny at the same time that works upon every level.
The Plot follows Emmet (Chris Pratt) whos this typical every day Lego guy who follows his ordinary rules and living his life in a good and awesome way. Then he was misatken for being the most improtant person in the world and has the key to save the world form Lord Bussiness (Will Ferrell) plan to keep things the way they are. Along the way, he comes across some other characters like Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arent) and Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman) who are apart of a legue called the Master Builders and Emmet trys to build some great ideas by just beeing him self.
What works in this film is the fact the story while yes we heard this story before were some one is the special one to save the world, but what made the plot great is the fact they knew that you have heard this story before, but they wanted to throw a tiwst into it to make it work and bring a good amount of comedy into the plot without making it too distracting. The aniamtion in this is just wonderfull to look at. I knew this was a computer animated film, but what I love about it is how they made it look like stop motion animation. It was just so beautiful is that half the time I couldnt even tell if was computer animation ot stop motion. I dont know how they did it but they did it the right way. The Characters in this are all every likeable and even bring some decesnt devlopment into them. Some of them might not beeing rooting for at frist, but by the film drawns into a close, you'll enjoy them more. The voice acting is top noch form all of the actors. From Chris Pratt to Will Ferrell to Elizabeth Banks to Will Arent To Liam Neeson to Morgan Freeman, all of the actors gave terrific performances to all of their roles and make their characters more realistic to the film. The jokes in this go by so fast and alot of them are hilarious. Which give thanks to it great wirtting and I like how they mange to balnce it's humor to give a good amount of jokes that both kids and adults will laugh their buts off. There's even a cool little tiwst near the end. Not give away about what it is, but it's both unique and even a little heartwarming as well.
The Lego is not only one of the best comedies ever made, this is also one of the best aniamted films in a long time. Is it as good as other aniamted films like Toy Story or Frozen? Not Really. But is it still a phenomenal film for all ages to enjoy? Yes. this film has a smart story, beautiful animation, great jokes, terrific performances and a well wirten script, this film is a must watch for all ages. This marks as the frist great film of 2014. Thank you Lego Movie. This is one film I'll so watch again and not get borred of it. It'll only get better and better each time.
Everything was AWESOME!!!!!!
Everything was awesome. Everything was cool since they were part of a team. LOL
Regarding “The End"
First of all, this is just about one of my favorite animations and movies ever. Regarding the end, I think it was absolutely necessary. I honestly could not imagine the movie ending any other way (sounds familiar -----Huck Finn). Seriously, when I saw this movie I really enjoyed it but at the same time was expecting a cliché dream works type ending. The Lego Movie is the complete opposite. The ending hammers the message(s) in while ensuring some extra laughs that would certainly have not been there if their was a fairytale ending as many of you want it.
