THE LEGO MOVIE (2014) : REVIEW
February 10, 2014
Everyone plays LEGO. Or at least, ever played with one. I was around 5 when I found myself building houses using this 80-year-old Danish interlocking plastic blocks. So when I heard about this movie, I couldn't help but wondering "How do you make a movie about colorful, hard, and rigid plastic toys? Will it be just another toys-to-movie adaptations which simply are meaningless? Will it be just another moves to rocketing LEGO's sales?" So yeah, I basically left all the expectations aside and happily stomped my feet to the nearest theater. In 3D. So, how was it?
Finally said, this could have been a rated 4 movie if only I didn't grow tired of zero to hero formula. Sure it had some quips which really helped to the older audiences, but that was it, predictable as it was. But still, it was compelling, heartwarming and intriguingly touching. A completely original, new and out of the box project, and I genuinely liked it. Recommended.
