Six young ninjas Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Nya are tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago. By night, they're gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they're ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.Written by
As Lloyd and Garmadon are being carted toward the volcano, one of their captors claims that the 15 million Kelvin temperature lava will melt them before they even feel the heat. While technically true, volcanic lava is not anywhere near that hot. Volcanic lava can be anywhere from 970 to 1500 Kelvin (700 to 1200 Celsius.) By comparison, 15 million Kelvin is roughly 15 million Celsius and is the approximate temperature of the nuclear core of the sun. If the volcano was really 15 million kelvin, everything around it would be vaporized. See more »
Nowhere near as bad as other reviews had me expecting. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised.
The Lego Movie was fantastic. Lego Batman wasn't as good but was still pretty solid. The Lego Ninjago Movie is the worst of the three, but it's really not that bad.
The film looks fantastic, I watched it in 4k and the colours and animation look magnificent. The animation in the action scenes can contain a little too much judder but other than that I have no complaints on the look of this movie.
The characters are fun enough. The villain has some good moments with humour that was to my taste.
One of its main problems is that it now feels a little repetitive and stale after the previous 2 movies. The studio really should be aiming to make them bigger and better with easy passing movie otherwise the franchise will run out of steam. Following Lego Batman with Lego Ninjago was always going to have an anti-climax feel to it.
I think Younger fans will enjoy this more than the adults. The dialogue is a little cheesy and slapstick which I found tiring after a while but that's not to say it isn't funny. Some of the jokes land, some of them don't. The morales of the story are a little cliched a familiar also, with its classic son and father broken relationship plot.
Overall, I found the movie flawed in parts and it was more geared towards children, but ultimately it was still entertaining. It gets far too much stick from reviewers/critics and because of this I went into the movie expecting to be disappointed, which I wasn't. Worst of the three movies so far but still worth a look.
