The Lego Batman Movie (2017)
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure
A movie that has spun from the success of The Lego Movie (2014) and of course, Batman 😀 ! This is a good solid movie that is highly entertaining with the colours, action and Lego characters for the children. This movie is also great for those who love Batman and for the adults in general, with its humour that we older generations will appreciate 😛 . The narrative itself is easy to follow and is quite captivating when the “bad guys” arrive. The action is plentiful but done in that Lego way 😛 . The opening credits are great and I loved Batman’s narration. His quotes in this movie are fantastic 😀 ! I loved the Joker in this and the references to the “shipping” between Batman and The Joker 😛 . I liked that I felt for Batman but I also felt for the bad guys as the narration allowed you to see each side and was surprisingly touching. However, as much as it looked good, was entertaining and hit everything for families and children…it just not as good. I wasn’t laughing out loud the entire way through and it felt a bit like a funny nostalgic trip down the Batman Franchises. Maybe you have to be a major Batman fan to appreciate all the in-jokes? Also, there was a moment for me where I was not as captivated as I probably should have been. Though there are more good points to this movie then bad and after all, it is aimed for children so in a sense, it did great 🙂 . It is also a definite watch for fans of Batman but I don’t think this has surpassed the success of the Lego Movie. Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
