Only one Lego figure can save the day - the prophesied "special one". This Lego hero is destined to find the fabled piece of resistance and save the day and the world.

Is It Any Good?

I love The Lego Movie. I find new reasons to enjoy it every time that I watch it -  it certainly bears repeat viewing.

I must admit that, when I first watched this film in the cinema, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the craziness. 

However, now that I have watched it several times, I appreciate the genius of this brilliant family film.

Of course, The Lego Movie looks amazing - it just blows my mind to think about how complex a task the filmmaking process must have been. 

How this film was overlooked by the Oscars (apart from its nomination and win for best song), I will never know.

My kids just love the movie's inventiveness and the authentic, inherent humour in the use of Lego blocks. 

I love it for its sense of pure nostalgia. Every scene - from the meticulously crafted backgrounds to the realistic movement of the characters - just rings true in a wonderful and often hilarious way.

The story is bonkers - but it feels perfect and there is also a great message that will resonate with anyone who has ever constructed complicated Lego sets. 

The voice talent in The Lego Movie is superb. I love Chris Pratt's Emmet so much. His performance really makes the film for me. I also laugh and laugh at Morgan Freeman's wise man, Vitruvius, and at Will Arnett's Batman.

With a combination of a great, funny and inventive plot, a brilliant voice cast and an awesome theme song - what's not to love about The Lego Movie?
