Here’s the truth – I wanted to see The Lego Batman Movie as much as my 4-year old son. We’ve been slowly building a Lego city in our basement over the past year and I love watching his little imagination work. I also love feeling like a kid myself. So this is the perfect movie for the both of us. Even better, it doesn’t include a song that will get stuck in your head for months.
As with The Angry Birds Movie, I interviewed my son for the bulk of this review, but before we get to that, here’s what you should know about this movie from my perspective. It’s not quite as good as The Lego Movie, but only because so much of it is familiar Batman stuff. It’s still very good though. It has plenty of adult humor and homages to Batman’s history throughout cinema that will have you laughing as your kid laughs at the stuff aimed at kids. Most importantly, it made me feel like a kid again. Now, onto the real review.
