Now, most and pretty much all films have a hero or relative to the heroes as the star, basically a reason for him/her to lead the story, but in this movie, a regular construction worker that loves to just fit in with everyone else is the hero, which nicely gives the shoes of this movie an identity of it's own. This gentle and perhaps clueless friend is so good at being normal, that he doesn't see how everyone around him just sees him as a dorky prop. When he finds out about this, you'll probably be a bit upset, but that will surprise you, seeing how this is an entire movie with Legos and yet it has a heart. After he accidentally discovers a legendary key called "The Piece of Resistance,", he is seen as the special one, said to lead the rebellion of Master Builders against the secretly evil President Business, or Lord Business. All these Master Builders can build jets, motorcycles, and pretty much everything in seconds, using whatever they can find around the area, Lord Business being upset that these people have free will and have been capturing them. On Tako, or Taco Tuesday, this evil lord plans to "superglue" the entire world together. The Master Builders have tried and failed to take him down, but can Emmet somehow lead his new friends in and save the day?
Now, this movie sounds very cynical, but it is anything but. Emmet is like someone playing Watch Dogs, who would rather sneak around the killers and to the goal whereas the Master Builders know how to fire their guns. Emmet is like a Pokemon that prefers Defense over Attack, and you know what? Sometimes they prevail. This may be built for kids, and you'll get the hint of it when a spaceship from Star Wars appears on cue when our heroes need a Hyperdrive, and how the prophecy must be true because it rhymes. Still, like How to Train your Dragon and a lot of animated films, there is no age group too old for this movie. The animation is as good as or maybe better than Frozen's, which is surprising, since this movie only had a 60 million dollar budget. The animation looks like stop-motion while it wasn't, with a ton of different face gestures skipping the transition right to it, but I felt that was a smart idea. The voice acting is very inspiring, especially Elizabeth Banks as the fierce Wyldstyle. Last but not least, it has a sweet tounge for humour. The Lego Movie is not PERFECT, but it is certainly awesome.
