This is the story of an absolutely ordinary construction worker Lego figure who is proud to follow the directions and fade into the background. But when he finds a special piece, he becomes “The Chosen One’ to defeat the evil President Business (aka Lord Business) and set order to the world. But he feels anything but special. With the help of some new found friends and a group of master builders, perhaps the world has a chance.

This really popular little animated Lego film grabbed the hearts of all the kids and touched all those of us who remember the days of Legos. Well now the Lego Movie is finally out on DVD, even for us poor suckers at NetFlix and Redbox, and I do suspect Disney/Pixar may have some real competition this year. The Lego Movie is a nearly perfect film for Kids and Grown-ups much to the level of Wreck-It Ralph, and some of the other recent kiddie blockbusters. This is a story with a lot of heart, and we’re guided through the story by the voice of Morgan Freeman. There are a great many terrific actors in this film, and as a result, we get great performances from the animated characters. There are so many “punny” moments in this film that it’s bound to make the grown-ups laugh along with the kids. They may be laughing at different things, but the jokes and puns are so close together that it will keep you in stitches. There is also a lot of heart and great story of what it takes to be truly “special” and how to work as a team. There are so many references to the real world Legos and a short trip to the human world that kind of tips us off to the whole background story. All in all, this was an excellent story, well told with great animation and terrific voices, and as I said, one of the very best animated films I’ve seen in a long time. In fact, it was AWESOME. Of course, when everything is awesome, that doesn’t mean a whole lot. Trust me, you love this one, so if you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to catch it now that it’s out on DVD. I have no doubt the sequel will be out soon. What a terrific movie.
