The Lego Batman Movie:

[This review contains spoilers]

I really hope that this movie gets a sequel. I mean it’s like Deadpool, but for all ages. It’s witty, fast paced and without one dull moment. I like this version of Batman, I mean he’s a beatboxing machine, full of himself and has character development in surprising ways. It tackles issues that most Batman media just doesn’t touch.

How did Bruce’s parents dying affect him? Why is he alone? Is he intentionally just pushing people away? Is saving Gotham really as important to him as just being loved by its people?

Some of these questions the film only indirectly touches, but already it has more depth than some of it’s live action counterparts. I loved every moment of it.

The film begins and ends with a bang. It has incredibly catchy songs. It’s a must watch for any Batman fan, especially long-time ones. It has so many references you’ll miss half of them.

It’s a great comedy, and an even better action film.

I watched Wonder Woman and was incredibly underwhelmed. I didn’t have any of those issues with this movie. When it slowed down, I cared about the characters. I liked this version of Barbara Gordon. I mean she went to ‘Harvard For Police’ and is just as much of a badass as Bruce; which I loved.

Also Robin is adorable. He can kick butt. Actually this film has a great version of Alfred, I mean they actually acknowledge that he’s Bruce’s dad, and can also beat the enemy to a pulp.

Also Joker and Batman are in true ‘hate’ for each other. It’s silly, with a weird amount of subtext that’s just a hoot.

Also Barbara/Bruce. It’s a thing that the world needs to deal with, even if all it amounts to in the film is a one sided attraction from Batman. It was funny and I want it to be a thing! Get Hetro together!

The music is fun. The animation is wonderful, the art design just as much. The colours pop off the screen. I have no complaints with the animation at all. Also the action was awesome. I’m sure I already said that. It needs to be said again.

Watch the movie. It’s great. I love it.
