The Lego Movie (Phil Lord and Chris Miller, 2014)

What's it about? Emmet (voiced by Chirs Pratt) is a non-descript construction worker in Lego City, happy to conform and follow instructions each and every day. However, his ordered world is broken apart when he is identified as 'The Special One', the only one who can stop the megalomaniac President Business (Will Ferrell) from ruling the world.


Is it any go....?  Actually, you know what? I'm going to throw aside the usual instruction template for my reviews and just stick a few thoughts together here. This is a solid and colourful 4 x 2 piece, playfully deconstructing its Matrix storyline with several belly laughs and a few nostalgic references for older viewers (Space Lego!). The same directors made the Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs films, and this features a similarly pleasing and often very funny madcap plot, which sparks off in several directions at once, but still manages to keep sight of its core message. It doesn't quite click together at the end, but it's not for the want of trying to do something a bit different, when it would have been easier to play safe. So kudos for throwing away the standard instructions on this sort of thing. Not everything is Toy Story levels of awesome, but most of it is pretty damn good. That's me finished. Oh! No, wait....I'm just going to stick on an extra bit here about how Lego Batman is pretty cool. ooh! ooh! and another bit here about how Liam Neeson (Bad Cop) singing Danny Boy is pretty funny, as is Morgan Freeman's piss-take turn as the blind Vitruvius. And it won't hurt to tack on a bit about how there's a pirate robot with a shark for a hand. And what about a final bit about the infectiously awful, but utterly brilliant 'Everything is Awesome' song, just stuck on at the side. There! It mightn't be the most perfectly formed review, but I created it.

Anything else I should know? Yes, be aware of the dangers of Lego-foot, a fate that befells all of us from time to time. I just hope you survive the pain.
