When I first heard of The Lego Movie, I thought – meh. Another toy cashing in on the big screen.
But the story idea rumoured in 2012 had legs. It sounded kinda good.
I’m not a cynic but I was surprised.
It’s about average guy Emmet – a law abiding, harmless blockhead. A case of mistaken identity and mistaken ability sees him drafted into a heroic quest for which he has pretty much zero chance of success – saving the world.
Or – is he the one blockhead to rule them all?
Voices you might recognise include Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks [at first I thought it was Scarlett Johansson] and the unmistakable voice of Morgan Freeman.
The preview below gives you a feel for the humour and the humanity of this blocky 3D comedy in cinemas early 2014.
