Yesterday I managed to get to see the Lego Batman Movie and although the girl friend came to the realization that she might be growing up, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was absolutely full of pop culture references and also for a geek like me there was so many links to the comics and past movies it was brilliant and an awful lot of fun.
I thought the story line was great, the way they told Batman’s story was both in honour of the comic book character but also the fun version they are creating with this movie. The other main characters were a great addition and the voice actors they used were fantastic. Michael Cera (superbad, Scott pilgrim) was the voice of Robin and I’d have never imagined him playing a DC character… but now when I see the Lego Robin I can only hear his voice which he pulls off hilariously. Will Arnett reprises his role of Batman first played in The Lego Movie. They continued the care free, darknesssss, because I’m Batman vibe in this movie and it’s still a lot of fun.
Overall if you’re a fan of pop culture references, DC comics or just Lego you should definitely check it out.
