“Everything is Awesome”

I was excited to see this film from the first trailer I watched. I had enjoyed some of the Lego video games and a movie done in that style intrigued me. Add to that an all star cast featuring Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett and Will Ferrell to name a few and I was on board. Lets build a story.

Emmet is just your average construction worker living his average construction worker life and loving it. Out of no where comes WyldStyle to shake things up for him and the adventure begins. Bring on the laughs, explosions, amazing animation, Batman and a twist of an ending and we’re all left with smiles in the end.

I was worried that this film would end up feeling like a hundred and forty minutes of Lego commercials. With the help of a great story the film makers were able to entertain without leaving you brainwashed to buy. There were more adults than children in the theater where we watched The Lego Movie, so if you’ve dismissed it as “kids stuff” then you don’t know shit about fuck and should give it a chance. Till next time friends, stay entertained.
