Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) in "The LEGO Batman Movie"

The Lego Batman Movie

7 based on 3 ratings

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

The Lego Batman Movie

I spent the screening of The Lego Batman Movie battling sleep. That surprised and disappointed me. It's Batman. I love Batman. Anything Batman should be able to grasp me for 90-plus minutes. But therein lies the question. Was this a Batman movie or Batman roast? This latest entry to the Lego movie franchise felt like the latter and that also upset me a little, in addition to being a bore fest. "Batman should be revered and not mocked", I seemed to be screaming internally the few times I engaged with the film.

Warning, spoilers below for the ending to The Lego Batman Movie. — While The Lego Batman Movie is, well, a Batman movie, it's also part of a larger universe. And in that larger universe, there are many, many properties that exist, as evidenced in The Lego Movie from 2014. So when the likes of Voldemort and Sauron appear in the final act of the film, it shouldn't be a surprise (but it is).
