Having done little research on this film before watching, my expectations were quite low and my enthusiasm in tow with my better judgement were wailing in succession for me to spend my time more wisely.
After the internal struggle within my mind had subsided and the pulsating and throbbing veins connecting my brain to my heart had relaxed somewhat, I eventually pressed play and watched The Lego Movie.
From the exposition I was proved wrong. Not only was the picture and graphics crystal clear and highly amusing, but the dialogue was simply hilarious. A splendid balance had been achieved to where not only kids are entitled to watch The Lego Movie, but adults as well.
As the story prolongs, Emmet unearths his prophecy of adventure and triumph. Along the way our reluctant protagonist meets the pretty but dangerous Wyldstyle. Both characters team up to thwart Lord Business' plans.
The gem with this film lies in the fluidity of the story, co-directors and writers of The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are superb in conjuring up a smart, witty and functional script, one that makes sense on a creative and almost ingenious level.
