Review: Everything About ‘The Lego Movie”
It would have been so much easier, and so much safer, for directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to just make the kind of Lego Movie that you probably expected from the marketing. They could have crafted a simple hero’s journey, crammed with celebrity cameos and postmodern humor, and called it a day while watching the money roll in and the toy sales shoot through the roof.
And there are all of these elements in this particular Lego Movie, but there is also something more. The film goes in some wonderfully unexpected directions and takes real storytelling risks. I cannot say how everyone will respond to its narrative left turns and unexpected poignancy, but they elevate to the film far above a glorified toy commercial. The Lego Movie may in fact be brilliant. Expected release date for The Lego Movie DVD and Blu-ray discs is May-June, 2014.
