Fighting crime is a full-time job and Batman NEVER takes a vacation. That is until he finally agrees to let Batgirl and Nightwing take him on a long overdue trip - leaving Gotham City under the watchful eye of the Justice League in LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Gotham City Breakout. When Batgirl and Nightwing take Batman on a trip down memory lane - literally - to visit one of the key mentors from his formative years, it's up to the Justice League to keep Gotham City crime-free. But neither situation proves to be a "vacation" as the Bat trio encounters old nemeses on their adventure, and the Justice League discovers just how busy Batman is on a regular basis. It's a brick-tastic battle on two fronts as Batman, Batgirl and Nightwing take on Bane and Deathstroke, while the Justice League - with some help from a few Teen Titans - fends off an assault by many of Batman's infamous adversaries to ensure Gotham City's safety.
It's insane that the sublime and the substandard can coexist like this. For anyone who has seen the wonderful Lego Batman Movie currently out in theatres you will literally be jaw-dropped at how bad Gotham City Breakout is. The Lego DC series started off so well but gradually got worse and worse. I have no interest left in this series. It was a mistake to shift the focus away from Batman and bring in the rest of the Justice League, especially Superman, who just doesn't work as a character, in any capacity, in 2017.
There is no plot here, just a mess of scenes, but I will try to put it in something resembling a sense-making order. Batman goes away on vacation for his crime-fighting anniversary while Superman does a pretty poor job of watching over Gotham City. Sounds simple enough but they both go off on so many tangents that nothing at all seems to be the focus. The characters are aggravating, the writing so juvenile and cringe-worthy it would make CBeebies blush, and the musical score, as expect, is too loud and intrusive.
No child is going to be entertained by this. Despite what the producers might think, children actually want challenging and stimulating entertainment. This is neither. Even at 78 minutes this long outstays its welcome. Skip it.
