Years after the universe has fallen under the sway of the maniacal Lord Business, the worlds are places of order and quiet obedience. Ruled by subtle, but insistent suggestion, instructions, and propaganda, its people have been lulled into a state of conscious acceptance. Despite the overwhelming success of his rule, only one thing threatens Lord Business' reign, 'The Special.' As foretold in prophecy, one day, the most amazing, fantastic, and most special person would rise to end the tyranny of Lord Business, defeating him and his ultimate weapon. To his and everyone's surprise, Emmet Brickowoski, a generic construction worker, could be 'The Special.'

Adding yet another dimension to the classic and evolving world of Lego, "The Lego Movie" is a stop-motion styled, animated film, featuring a host Hollywood stars including Morgan Freeman (Vitruvius), Chris Pratt (Emmet Brickowski), Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle), Will Ferrell (Lord Business), Will Arnett (Batman), and many more. Visually, the feature is both impressive and unusual, as explosions, water, smoke, and just about every effect is made of lego bricks. While odd and somewhat difficult to get used to, the results are something to see. Beyond visuals, the massive world of lego includes so many familiar and iconic brands, the film had not shortage of popular and original characters. Regardless of an overwhelming amount of visual stimulation, "The Lego Movie" is a fun and entertaining film, with plenty of jokes and interesting visuals for kids and adults. While it lacks the polished and refined storytelling inherent in live-action and most 3d animated features, "The Lego Movie" is worth the price of admission for any fan of Lego and animation.
