The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity


They are Lego pieces and no sexual innuendos, situations, or simulations are present in the movie. Still, a Lego character walks out in his balcony naked for a brief moment. The scene is comic and nothing is seen.

Violence & Gore


NOTE: Remember that the film is made of Lego.

Bad Cop ends up gluing his parents.

Several fights between Lego characters including punching and flipping; this is also nonviolent and meant to have a cartoonish feel.

A character's head is cut off with a sharp disk and dies (the whole scene mostly comical and non-gory).

In a car chase, sheriff's deputy figures fire automatic weapons with plastic lasers at a male figure (he is not struck); a nearby wall falls on another figure (we do not see the outcome). A police figure drives his cruiser across the tops of moving train cars, shoots out a trestle, and causes three other figures to fall off the bridge and onto the ground (they are unharmed).

In two scenes, a female figure saves a male figure from robot attacks by using karate kicks and punches to knock down the attackers.

Bad Cop chases a construction worker and a freedom fighter on foot; other cops join Bad Cop and they all shoot plastic pieces (lasers) at the two, simulating handguns and automatic rifles, hitting no one; the construction worker falls off a motorcycle (no injury is visible).

Bad Cop arrests several figures as other cops handcuff them and lead them away to a skyscraper; cops chain the captives, stand them in small compartments and shock them with electricity. We see sparks as they shout in pain.

A CEO orders his computer mainframe to "destroy everyone" with a time bomb.

A horde of robots attack and glue many civilians, while others are fighting them with makeshift machines.

A construction worker builds a giant mech and attacks a horde of robots alongside others



5 mild anatomical terms, 14 mild obscenities, 7 altered religious exclamations (e.g., "Oh my Gosh"), and quite a few minced oaths (e.g., dang, darn, darny darn, oh man!, heck, wow, gosh, et al.)

Name-calling (hippy dippy baloney, stupid, crazy, insane, dumb, loser, lame, ding dong, dorky, old man, useless, liar, cowardly, special snowflake, unspecial, and weird.)

Stereotypical (though unoffensive) references to wizards, heroes, Big Business CEOs, Big Oil, women, men, followers, the police, cats, Mexicans, the Scottish, TV personalities, micro-managers, and controlling fathers.


Cowboy figures drink from glasses of what may be beer in a saloon scene.


A character's parents are frozen in place with Krazy Glue. Soon after, part of his face is erased using nail polish remover.

A man is interrogated by a cop and is taken to the "melting chamber". However, this entire scene is comical and not meant to be scary.

Nothing too intense for young viewers.
