SYNOPSIS
The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average lego minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Starring as Emmets fellow travelers are oscar winner Morgan Freeman (`Million Dollar Baby`), as vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (`The Hunger Games,` Emmy nominee for `30 rock`), as tough-as-nails wyldstyle, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest;Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, `30 rock`), as the mysterious batman, a lego minifigure with whom Wyldstyle shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBCs `Parks and Recreation`) as a Craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on president business; and Alison Brie (NBCs `Community`) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

Lord Business and Vitruvius face off for control over a force that can bestow control of the Lego universe to whoever possesses it. And the only entity more powerful than Lord Business is known simply as The Man Upstairs. Back in their animated world, the Lego characters can either go about life following instructions laid down by Lord Business, or do whatever they want; a sort of creative anarchy.

I`ve never loved a marketing gimmick so much! Perhaps that`s because none of the earlier product-peddling exercises have actually respected the buyers` mental faculties and put in an effort to make a film instead of a two-hour advertisement. ...Read full review
Anyone whos ever owned a Lego set will be curious to see how those colored plastic bricks lend themselves to a full-length feature film The good news is that directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, know exactly how to take those beloved, iconic toys and create a wildly imaginative and visually stunning universe, that forms the heart of The Lego Movie. Emmet (Chris Pratt) is one of those generic little Lego figures, a lonely construction worker who cheerily follows instructions, and doesnt seem to mind that he lives an unremarkable, regimented life. When he accidentally stumbles onto the Piece of Resistance, a new friend, Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), reveals to him that according to an old prophecy, hes the only person in the universe who can stop control freak President Business (Will Ferrell) from destroying the world. ...Read full review
