Crazy Credits

When the movie is shown on YouTube throughout Brick Friday 2018 (November 23rd, 2018) as an promotional advertisement for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (2019), the words "Based on" in the "Based on LEGO Construction Toys" credit is absent. See more »

Alternate Versions

This film was rendered in both "Scope" (2.39:1) and "Academy ratio/Flat" (1.37:1, non-wide-screen), the latter of which was intended for 1.85:1 (1.78:1 for Amazon Prime version with bonus features) exhibition for use in theaters that did not use anamorphic lens projection. Each time a shot was completed for the scope version, the animators had to render another take for the "flat" version. Warner Bros. has released on Amazon Prime Video both the "anamorphic" and "spherical" versions, the latter of which also has bonus features after the film. Other CGI films also rendered in both aspect ratios included Cars, The Incredibles and A Bug's Life. See more »

Strong story in a very creative way
4 March 2014 | by mutiaraherawatiSee all my reviews

If you watch the trailer and you think its just gonna be a fun stop-motion animated Lego movie, you were wrong. The Lego Movie is beyond fun. its creative and it brings back a lot childhood memories. The story was amazing, the jokes were hilarious, and they have great intention in details.

But, the most important thing, the movie remind us to be creative. Because sometimes, As we grow up, in someway, we stop being creative and just follow the rules and instruction. For adults, this movie will bring back your childhood memories and how you used to play randomly with those Lego. And for a kids, you'll just love this movie, and definitely makes you want to play with your own Lego.

totally worth watching movie! even your grandparents will enjoy this movie! 9/10
