Bricks of awesomeness
Whether you’re a kid or an adult, if you love Lego, you’ll love this movie.
EVERYTHING is awesome! And like its annoyingly addictive theme song suggests, The Lego Movie is also pretty awesome, setting an early standard for the funniest and most entertaining film of 2014 so far.
The plot is pretty simple – the evil Lord Business (Will Ferrell) is obsessed with making sure everyone in the Lego world knows and stays in his or her place, and to make sure of that, he plans to use a relic called the Kragle to superglue everyone in place.
But wait! There is a prophecy (there’s always a prophecy) by the blind wizard Vitruvius (voiced by Morgan Freeman, who could read a phone book and make it sound good), who says that one day, a Master Builder called The Special will find the “Piece of Resistance” and free the Lego world from the evil grasp of Lord Business.
