"The LEGO (R) Movie" is the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO (R) adventure. The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet (Chris Pratt) an ordinary, rules- following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure 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. (c) Warner Bros

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"The visuals are spectacular, the 3D technology is artfully used and the story is jam-packed with so many funny lines, it's hard to catch all the jokes that are delivered in rapid-fire succession -- constantly tweaking many popular culture icons."
‑ Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
"In what is sure to turn out to be this generation's Toy Story, this crazy-funny animated lark takes us into a hyper-happy world where everything is so awesome there's even a pop anthem called Everything is Awesome... fresh and fast and funny."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Just as the conceptual agility of The LEGO Movie never ceases to astonish - it will take at least three viewings to fully take in every last detail applied here - the visuals both innovate and resonate to heights only previously scaled by Pixar."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia)
"The Lego Movie is woeful, forgettable and one of the great film disappointments of this decade."
‑ Rhett Bartlett, Dial M For Movies
"This is truly a movie that children and their parents can both enjoy for different reasons."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The brightly-imagined Lego Movie is a wickedly smart and funny free-for-all, and sassy enough to shoot well-aimed darts at corporate branding."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"... let's not pave all the roads with yellow bricks just yet."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"it's worth your time to discover instead of me preempting by synopsis and/or recitation. I hate it when an internet post ends this way, but it's all you're going to get from this review: "Enjoy!""
‑ Ray Pride, Newcity
"The Lego Movie is a brilliant technical achievement."
‑ Evan Williams, The Australian
"The Lego Movie: Merely a great film, or the greatest film ever in the history of cinema?"
‑ Christy Lemire,
"A total gas--even if its message is that we should do as Lego says, not as Lego does."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Delightful, inspired, affecting, utterly hilarious stuff, and certainly the first feature starring Batman to earn a couple of those compliments."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"A wry, playful and intelligent piece of filmmaking that, like Toy Story before it, rises far above its station."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"It's fast, smart, really funny, full of great action and contains a song, 'Everything is Awesome', with the single catchiest hook in the history of songwriting. Seriously, in this movie at least, everything really is awesome."
‑ Anthony Morris, The Vine
