By day, they're ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.Written by

[from trailer; Lloyd is in the kitchen with his mom watching Lord Garmadon on the TV]
Hey, Mom, um... could we talk about... Dad? So, when you guys got together, was Dad always an evil warlord?
Okay, well, here it is. I got sucked up. He had so many plans; he was so ambitious. He said he wanted to conquer the world. I thought it was a figure of speech. But, if I had never met Garmadon, I would had never had you!

As with The LEGO Movie (2014), the third of the closing credits is presented in the background of changing LEGO colors. The cast is divided into groups. See more »
It's strength lies within the earthiness and a sense of amusement towards the outer reality; that a regular LEGO movie consists, along with the runtime which helps the movie flow but it still doesn't make it a smart movie with anything new to offer except for some relationship drama; which frankly the audience is familiar with.
Justin Theroux shines all over the movie as Garmadon; the evil lord whose son i.e. Dave Franco as Lloyd, apparently battles against him. But the Jackie Chan here plays as a masterful trump card as Dave Franco's mentor Master Wu who is also the creator of the LEGO world and has a perfect comic timing with some good one-liners. The LEGO Ninjago Movie is barely standing on the script and more on the mockery which leads to the disappointment if taken the previous LEGO movies in account but still it's amusing screenplay and fast pacing won't let you regret any of it. It had a smart idea and a great cast but a disappointing climax.
