The Lego Movie is a movie I delayed in seeing because I thought, what they could possibly have smoked to have decided to make this.

Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009), 21 Jump Street (2012) and 22 Jump Street (2014)), both did a wonderful job keeping me glued, this movie was fun to watch and may I say, a masterpiece.
The script was air tight good, the directing was great and the voice casting was interesting from Will Arnett, Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Liam Neeson to Morgan freeman, I was having the time of my day hearing them talk.
I enjoyed every minute of this movie and the lines of the characters killed me. I was laughing my head off and couldn’t help but share with anyone who cared to listen, the jokes from the movie.

The Lego franchise has proven to be profitable as toys and in the gaming industry, but now it has shown it can be profitable in the movie industry. The movie grossed over $468 million from the box office alone based on a $60 million budget.

The animation style of the movie is on point, having in mind the characters are Lego toys, their movement and the various incidents that took place on the screen were as should be if you were playing with the Lego bricks yourself. The movie was not a total animation gig, there were also times were we got to see the people who owned the characters especially the young boy, whose imagination we were watching.

His imagination was about a world (Lego World) where everybody can be seen doing the same thing day in day out, watching the same show, liking the same song and following instructions laid down by Lord Business. Then there are the rebels who believe that the people of this world should be free to think and do as they please. These rebels are the master builders, who can at a snap of your fingers create anything from the Lego bricks around them.

Lord Business, is tired of always having to put things in order, so he has devised an evil plan, to cause all the people of Lego World to be frozen in the position he wants them to be, the only hindrance to his plan is the special, an ordinary law abiding citizen who will turn the tide against him.

In the end of the movie I was sad because I wanted more, but I guess I will have to wait for the next Lego Movie.
