Could The LEGO Movie be 2014’s first Big Blockbuster?
Have you seen The LEGO Movie yet? If not, I wonder what is holding you back since I couldn’t find even a single person who has been to the movie and not liked it. Heck, it is already being discussed as one of the biggest movie of the year.
It is full of charming voices to start with. You see names like Lim Neeson, Will Farrell, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Morgan Freeman among the voice actors; and listing the star cast is just touching the tip of the iceberg.
The LEGO Movie is currently rated 8.9 on IMDB and a whopping 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. That is not all; the movie takes irreverent South Park-like humor and teams it up with some of the most famed heroes of the comic world.
As you dig deeper into the story, you see it use the building blocks based picture to hit on the uncanny orthodoxy of the society. It has its own way of depicting the rise of a hero that has the capacity to embed deeply with minds of the young generation.
The bad guy, Lord Business is what reeks in The LEGO Movie world and now Emmet a LEGO Drone must save the world from his evil plan that involves Kragle, a super weapon. Of course, Emmet has some friends that could turn the tables. For instance: Batman, Superman, Abraham Lincoln, Wonder Woman and Vitruvius (voiced by none other than Morgan Freeman.)
Overall, it has all the elements that could make a movie click. The animation is ingenious, and the CG effects make it pretty slick to watch. It is written and directed by the folks who made 21 Jump Street, and it comes with the sound track, ‘Everything is Awesome’ which will make everyone flow with the tune of the movie – parents and children alike.
In the end, you don’t get a movie that pokes fun at its critics as well as its own origination at the same time – at least not very often. I’d say it is a must watch for anyone who has had a childhood that had something to do with LEGO. Oh, wouldn’t that mean nearly everyone?
