A narcissistic Batman made out of Lego; need I say more.
Since the original Lego Movie was released in 2014, we’ve all found ourselves pining for more. Well look no further, because Warner Bros. and Lego have once again joined forces to create the most hilariously enticing version of Batman since the 1960s tights fiasco.
But this is no ordinary Batman film, this is a Lego production, and we all know what that means; nothing, and I meaning nothing, is to be taken even remotely seriously. This is Batman as we’ve never seen him before and he’s as unpleasantly self-centred as one could have hoped for; begrudgingly fighting the joker to save Gotham by night and accidentally adopting children by day.
Whether it’s the perfectly timed comedic chemistry between characters or the visually impairing puns that fill the screen, this film never fails to entertain from start to finish.
Prehistoric references to past Batman films are a feature of the film that the creators revel in, with flashbacks that cross the animation boundary becoming a recurring event throughout.
Though the imagery and hilarity both excel expectations, this is not what makes the film a cinematic marvel; it is instead the film’s remarkable accessibility in its ability to please audiences of all ages that proves its excellence.
