Movie Review: "The Lego Batman Movie"

I can't imagine any child of any age not having a blast watching "The Lego Batman Movie." It's as close to perfect as a family movie could be. When it's not filling the screen with great gags and moments of self-aware hilarity, the action keeps you visually mesmerized. It might run a little long in the tooth, but in the end you'll feel entertained and somewhat fulfilled.

There are big changes brewing in Gotham. However, if Batman (Will Arnett) wants to save the city from the Joker's (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Maybe his superhero sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) can show him a thing or two in "The Lego Batman Movie."

"The Lego Batman Movie" is rated PG for rude humor and some action. There's really only one incident that I felt was inappropriate for younger ears. Older kids and their parents will get the joke, but toddlers won't understand. Aside from that, all there is to worry about is some comic book violence.

"The Lego Batman Movie" was released in 2017. It was directed by Chris Mckay. The voice cast includes Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, and Ralph Fiennes. The running time is 104 minutes.
