Six young teenage Ninjas call upon themselves to protect their home island of “Ninjago”. Our heroes go to school by day and fight crime at night. Using all sorts of awesome skills and robots they save the world daily. Our heroes must soon fight a new ultimate enemy and to make matters worse, the leader of the six ninjas, “Lloyd”, (voiced Dave Franco) discovers this new villain is, in fact, his father who has been distant from him for quite some time.
Will Lloyd be able to reconnect with his father? Will Lloyd reveal to his identity to own father even though they are enemies???
If you’ve ever watched The LEGO Movie or The Batman LEGO Movie then you should have a strong understanding of what to expect from this film. The LEGO Ninjago Movie manages to be different. Sure most of the jokes are still fun for young and old but the plot and characters are different to the previous instalments. I also enjoyed the new world our Ninjas protect and some of the action that surrounds them also had me smiling at multiple times. Because hey, it’s brainless fun! The jokes here are also solid. For example, watching Lloyd’s evil father call him on birthday not to wish him well, but simply because he accidentally “butt dialled” him was just one example where I just couldn’t keep a straight face when watching.
I’m surprised how much I actually enjoyed this film considering I personally know nothing about LEGO Ninjago other than that they exist in the LEGO section at my local Toy World (Yes, I like to shop a Toy World now and then!)
Overall, LEGO and Warner Bros have delivered another fun film full of creative (and yet random) moments. The film has plenty to offer including awesome Audio and Visual for those who also enjoy a new exciting 4K/UHD presentation. I also feel Dave Franco’s voice work was also great and hope to see him do more in this area again. This is a film that can be enjoyed by a family and will be praised by many LEGO fans out there (both young and old).
