Lego movies just never get old, there’s so much they can do with their licensed franchises. The first Lego movie where everything was truly awesome really set the benchmark and it’s a tough act to follow but the Batman Lego movie does a good job in giving fans what they expect. Shame on you if you are a Lego/Batman fan and have not watched this as yet, well now that the DVD is out here is your chance.

There are big changes brewing in Gotham, but if Batman (Will Arnett) wants to save the city from the Joker’s (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Maybe his superhero sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) can show him a thing or two.

Even better if you are a fan of Batman, the jokes just have so much more depth. I don’t know much about the legal red tape for example mentioning Marvel and other characters in a DC movie, but who cares it was great that they were able to combine different franchises like Lord of the rings, gremlins, the Matrix and so, so much more. This is the future of parody movies and not live action. It’s more than just funny and leans into the limits of Lego blocks in complex action sequences and character expressions. Never taking itself seriously and capitalizing on every opportunity to make fun even of itself and industry taboos.
