I was unapologetic in being excited for The Lego Movie, it being one of my most anticipated movies of 2014. I’ve found every Lego video game to be funny, and I was expecting no less from this movie. Visually, you can do the sort of slapstick humor that you see in, say, Looney Toons – things blowing up and walking away from it.
However, I don’t think that everyone was expecting quite what we got in this movie. Clearly it was not on everyone’s radar, as it took the critic community by storm. The number of positive reviews led to people writing negative reviews just to stand out in the crowd, I imagine – or at least, led to tongue-in-cheek negative reviews like the one on The Mary Sue.
So I don’t feel like there’s much I can add to the conversation, because I don’t feel the need to implore you to go see this movie. Others have already done so, and better. However, with as much as I was looking forward to this movie, I feel I would be remiss in not at least making a few comments about it. I will avoid spoilers, as I have noticed other reviewers doing a good job of so far!
