#11 LEGO Movie

#11 The LEGO Movie
Starring: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson and Will Arnett.

Directed by Chris Miler and Phil Lord, 100 minutes long.

This is a direct sequel to the Matrix and means, at long last that you never need watch the appalling Matrix Revolutions ever again. Doing in 100 lean minutes what The Wachowski Brothers couldn't in 129 minutes.

The story is, in a word, batshit crazy, an everyday LEGO being, Emmet is accidentally chosen to be the chosen one and must stop Lord Business from destroying the realms of LEGO land before TACO Tuesday, along the way he teams up with an assortment of heroes, including Batman, Wonderwoman, a cat/unicorn and a cyborg pirate and much relentless insanity ensues, including a third act twist that is truly inspired.

I'm getting old, I actually found this almost too relentless in its frenzied creativity. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed it, not got a great deal to say about this other than there's no need to see it in 3D.

Funny, silly, packed with more ideas than a library's worth LEGO instruction manuals and above all, stupidly entertaining. You and your kids should love it.

8/10
