The Lego Batman Movie Review – After the success of The Lego Movie in 2014, it’s only fair that Batman who stole some of the scenes in the previous flick gets to have his own version of lego movie/story.
|The Dark Kight|
We all know the story of Batman (voiced by Will Arnett), the rich orphan who decides to fight crime in Gotham City. His only ‘friend’ is his loyal butler, Alfred (voiced by Voldemort…I mean Ralph Fiennes). Batman’s nemesis, The Joker (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) takes it personal when Batman says that they don’t have a ‘special hero-villain relationship’. The Joker hatch a plan to combine the strength of all well-known villains, namely, Sauron, Bane, King Kong, Voldermort and even Velociraptors in order to get back at Batman and destroy Gotham City in the process, Meanwhile Batman has to decided once and for all if he could actually form any type of relationship with others by taking in help from the new Police Commissioner, Barbra Gordon (Rosario Dawson) along with his adopted son, Dick aka Robin (Michael Cera). Who will prevail? Can Batman save the day once again or The Joker finally gets his wish to annihilate Gotham City?
Strap on to your seat and enjoy the Batmobile ride from the start. This is spin off is another winner bursting with entertaining animation capturing the essence of Lego matched by smart puns by even taking a dig at Batman’s own history. The voice talents are nothing short of perfection matching their roles splendidly.
