After humongous success of The LEGO Movie, Warner Brothers took a swing at the DC universe. Released in Theaters on February 10, 2017, the LEGO Batman punched its way to a box office smash.
The LEGO Batman provides the silliness of LEGO while instilling the somewhat serious-tone of The Dark Knight. Batman is played by Will Arnett, who provides a stellar vocal performance of the cape crusader and Bruce Wayne. Robin, is played by awkward poster boy Michael Cera. While the rest of the main cast is rounded out by Zach Galifianakis (Joker), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl/Barbara Gordon), and Ralph Fiennes (Alfred).
The movie features comedic genius that will satisfy the whole family. It keeps your attention throughout and provides minimal stale scenes unlike its video game counterpart. One of the main criticism of LEGO video games is eventually they become stale with the same jokes. LEGO Batman eliminates the lame parody film-stereotypes and provides a great cinematic experience.
If you haven’t seen this movie, go see it. Simple as that.
