Goofs

After Bad Cop captures Emmet, he shows him footage of his friends talking about him. Emmet was captured in the evening, and when he escapes it's night, but the footage Bad Cop shows is in daylight. Since Bad Cop is only interested in Emmet because he has the Piece of Resistance (which he discovered only just before capture), there's no reason for Emmet's friends to have been interviewed previously.

A reminder of how fun Lego can be.
6 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The stand out feature of the Lego Movie for me would be the way the Lego Universe was created. The movie paid great attention to detail making everything appear as it would made from Lego, including the water and clouds, and the surfaces people walked on all had the circles sticking upwards a Lego piece would have. Combined with all the yellow faces, and Lego part during building, I was convinced action took place in the Lego Universe.

A combination of adult and child friendly humour should entertain all, the movie has done well to ensure audiences of all ages are catered to.

The voice cast were excellent, especially Liam Neeson's split personality police officer, making the 2 personalities sound distinctive, and giving his Bad Cop the usual Liam Neeson tough guy.

The plot is about resisting an over-controlling ruler, highlighted by the name of the hero's "resistance piece". It is well thought through, well written, and revealing at the right times. Full of surprises, The Lego Movie won't let You see what's coming. Best animated film since Wreck it Ralph! Please let there be sequels.
