I went and saw the Lego movie on Thursday Morning and I gotta say, I enjoyed every minute of it. let me tell you why.
Story: as the tagline says, this story tells about a pretty normal lego guy who ends up saving the world in which the legos live in. he meets up with some other characters like Batman, a 1980's space guy, a mecha pirate and many others.
Characters: these were some of the highlights of the movie. Emmet (Chris Pratt) is your typical average joe who doesnt seem to get recognized by everyone until he is summoned to fulfil the profecy to stop the Kragle. WildStyle (Elizabeth Banks) is a hard core kickass goth dressed women who is all about action and taking people out. Lord Businessman (Will Ferral) is the owner of Octan (Gas station branch in the Lego series) who is fed up with every one turning all his perfect stuff into other things and wants to keep it secure using the Kragle (Krazy Glue with some letters scratched off) Virtruvius (Morgan Freeman) is a wise yet somewhat kookie sorceror who forsaw the profecy of the "Special". More for you to descover in the movie
Animation: I was a little disapointed to figure out that their is no stop motion in this film (other then the end credits) but its the way they did the computer animation that baffles me. it looks like it all could have been a stop motion film the way it was presented. the effects including the water in the ocean, the smoke and cloud affects really blew my mind. a big kudos goes out to the animation devision of Animal Logic (Happy Feet, Legend of the Guardians, Walking with Dinosaurs)
Music: we are treated to some more tecnological music by the one and only Mark Mothersbaugh (Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 1 and 2, Rugrats) we are also treated to one of the most catchy yet anoying to seome people songs in the entire film called Everything is Awesome, and quite a few other versions of it as well. and if you stay towards the end of the credits, you can hear the full version of Batmans song he plays while they drive to Cloud Cuckooland (which I swear is a Banjo Tooie level) Titled "Untitled self Portrait"
all in all, I give this film an 8.5 out of 10. This film also goes a long way in when it comes to its serious moments not being taken to seriously, which would not work in other films, but would make sence in a movie about legos, I mean, it just makes sence cause their not real.
