Lego lovers of all ages will fall for movie

Emmet Brickowski is a Lego blockhead who is about to discover that being normal is not all that bad. The main character of “The Lego Movie” lives a normal life working construction and following all the rules. As Brickowski learns from his favorite song, everything is awesome.

That is until Brickowski, voiced by Chris Pratt, stumbles across a pretty girl named Wyldstyle voiced by Elizabeth Banks while working on the construction site.

While chasing after Wyldstyle, Brickowski falls deep into the Earth and finds an object called the Piece of Resistance.

The person who discovers the location of the relic is prophesied to be “The Special,” the one who will save everyone from President Business (Will Ferrell) and his evil plan to glue the universe together with the Kragle (Krazy Glue).

Brickowski — who has always followed the Lego directions — struggles with becoming a master builder to save the world with help from Wyldstyle, Batman (Will Arnett) and blind wizard Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman) as well as many others.

Lego fans will love this movie. Everything is created entirely from Lego pieces and figures including the water on the ocean.

All the different Lego playsets are represented too, including Superman, Green Lantern, Lord of the Rings and more. Some of the best effects are when WyldStyle made a motorcycle out of Legos in order to escape from Bad Cop, voiced by Liam Neeson.

The Lego Movie is full of hilarious jokes, gags and more.

The movie is perfect for people of all ages and backgrounds. It will leave viewers hanging on the edge of their seats and singing the theme music, “Everything is Awesome,” for days. “The Lego Movie” is rated PG and is suitable for children.

Rating: A-
