|Mandela: The Lego Movie|
DIRECTED BY: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller
STARRING: Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie
THE PLOT: The LEGO Movie is the first-ever, full-length theatrical Lego adventure. The 3D animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-abiding average Lego minifigure, who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving ‘the world’.
He is taken into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant — a journey for which he is hopelessly (and hilariously) underprepared.
WORTH WATCHING? To be honest, we had our doubts when we walked into the cinema. With substandard films like Saving Santa continuing to give us nightmares, it was hard to give another ‘children’s movie’ a go. Clearly, we were not prepared for the 100 minutes of pure entertainment that followed. You need to have watched some of the most popular movies in the last decade to get most of the jokes. Nevertheless, you’ll be laughing the whole time.
VERDICT: You’ll be laughing from the first minute until the credits roll.
