The Lego Batman Movie — Review
If I could summarize The Lego Batman Movie in one word, it would be “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” It’s kinda self-explanatory if you ask me. I mean, come on, it’s a LEGO flipping BATMAN flaming MOVIE! Three of the best things in the world crammed all into one movie. Well, I should probably stop dilly-dallying and get on with the actual review.
I went to go see The Lego Batman Movie on Saturday, February the 11th, 2017 with my best friend Garret (shout-out, he goes to Raa). The Lego Batman Movie was amazing! phenomenal! Or really, any of those sophisticated adjectives professional movie critics use. The Lego Batman Movie was not just action crammed into more action and epicness, but it was also heartwarming and sweet deep down. Take Batman as an example. Under all those abs and awesomeness, Batman is a kind creature. One of my favorite scenes was in the very beginning where Batman was taking out all of the villains while rapping:
Another one of my favorite scenes is where Dick Grayson (aka Robin) picks out his costume. This scene is funny, cute, and just plain awesome:
My next favorite scene is the scene where the audience meets the evil villains of Batman’s rogue gallery:
I had several other favorite scenes, like the one where different antagonists from pop culture appeared on screen such as Voldemort (Harry Potter), the Wicked Witch of the West (The Wizard of Oz), The Eye of Sauron (Hobbit), and King Kong (King Kong). And then there was the scene where Batman finally accepted his new family.
Batman — who was played by Will Arnett — was just so awesome. He makes sure the audience knows this a million times throughout the film.
Anyways, Batman’s objective of the movie was to take down The Joker, which was also the main focus of the movie. Robin — played by Micheal Cera — was so cute and hilarious. His objective of the movie was to find a new family, since his parents died when he was really young. So when Bruce Wayne adopted young Dick Grayson, he tried to get Bruce to accept him as his son. Barbara Gordon, who was played by Rosario Dawson, wasn’t Batgirl until the very end of the movie, but was independent and brave. Her objective was to partner up with Batman. One problem I had with this movie is that they scriptwriter wrote in Batman to have a crush on Batgirl. It was really awkward because there’s a huuuge age difference between the two of them. Joker — who was played by Zach Galifianakis —was really funny a cute at times, which was a little odd, but I went with it. Joker’s objective was to make Batman admit that he was his greatest enemy. It was weird because Joker described it as a “relationship” but it ended up being cool.
Overall, the movie was great! It had so many characters, even some that weren’t even from the DC Comics Universe. The entire Justice League was in it! I definitely recommend this movie for all ages; 10/10. Even if you don’t like Batman, or superheroes, you should really go see it, I promise you will like it no matter what.
Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman.
