Consensus: The Lego Batman Movie continues its block-buster franchise's winning streak with another round of dizzyingly funny -- and beautifully animated -- family-friendly mayhem.

The Lego Batman Movie works precisely because it knows audiences are sick of its hero. It's a reassessment, an intervention, an effort to try and remember what's fun about him.

Overall, The Lego Batman Movie offers enough action and silliness to enthrall children while providing sufficient pop culture and Batman-through-the-years references to keep adults entertained.

It's audacious, brilliant and definitely a super powered comedy.

The sequel of sorts... is not quite as good, but at its best, it has the same whiplash wit and inspired freneticism.

Basically, it's a standard-issue Batman narrative - arguably better than 50 per cent of history's other Batman films - that just happens to take place in a Lego-fied world.

Our plastic protagonist may not have Clooney's chest or the chiselled jaw of Affleck, but he's definitely the hero we need right now.

The thing about a sequel or a spinoff, even a mostly fun one like The LEGO Batman Movie, is that it's hard to recreate enthusiasm and inventiveness. What was once new is now, already, routine.

It's the Bat-spoof we didn't know we needed and it gives Batman a chance to loosen up.

The Mail on Sunday (UK)

Plundering joyously from other franchises -- Voldemort, King Kong and the Eye of Sauron are all prominent -- the detail is exquisite, the humour nicely balanced between child-friendly and adult, and the all-star voice cast top-notch.

Not as clever and neatly written as the original Lego Movie, but retains the same style of charm, humor and animation that made it great. The drama and emotion… More
