Have you seen the first LEGO movie from 2014 yet? Or how about it’s sequel in 2019? If you’ve seen either of those, this will be a slightly less subtle version of those stories about a toy leaving it’s realm to find itself but being betrayed by a loved one while a nefarious Will Ferrell lurks about doing nefarious things that end up not being all that nefarious but are still somewhat concerning. I don’t necessarily have the vocabulary to positively say this is a polemic and performative woke story without sounding like I’m wearing a red cap, but it is what it is and I do believe that this type of material that knows what the current situation is, has a progressive opinion about it, and bangs you over the head with the message is truly needed.
I just wish I could get into the music a little more, but from my understanding I’m in the vast minority there, maybe you’ll have a better musical appreciation than I did. I was pretty happy with the poppy stuff in the first quarter of the film, but from there it just kind fizzled out.
