"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
"Carries on in the grand Bob Clampett Warner Brothers "Porky in Wackyland" tradition. Surrealism for the six year old and the sixty year old."
‑ Louis Proyect,
"The Lego Movie presents one of the brightest-colored dystopian nightmares ever marketed to children ... highly imaginative, wildly fun, and clever on multiple levels."
‑ Austin Trunick, Under the Radar
"[I]t's an exhilarating, absolute joy to watch it all come together."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews 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
"It's brilliantly animated and incredibly well shot - whether it's the dazzling 'Busytown' cityscapes that children's author-illustrator Richard Scarry might once have created or simply two characters defying the breathtakingly shallow depth of field."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"By going off the proverbial reservation, making what amounts to a Lego movie for adults, even at the risk of displeasing those who wanted nothing more than a nostalgic wink fest, The Lego Movie merits praise as a true work of thematic richness."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
"While "The Lego Movie" may have a pretty basic story, its beautifully animated world and talented vocal cast give it enough depth to provide lots of fun and excitement."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"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
"A 100-minute advertisement you've paid to watch--now that's ingenuity."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Everything is awesome! Well, not quite everything - but more than enough to make THE LEGO MOVIE the biggest and best surprise this year."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"...the movie's relentlessly frenetic vibe grows more and more exhausting as time progresses..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
