Though I did not enjoy this movie as much as the Lego Batman Movie, the action, sometimes rude behavior and general irreverent action on the screen was colorful, loud and often hilarious. The opening of the film actually has live action with Chan being the proprietor of an ancient antique shop.
The overall theme of the movie is not just “try harder till you succeed”, but more of a “work together with each other to succeed”. It strikes a nice chord while also highlighting the importance of a father and son relationship. As with all of the other Lego movies, the wisecracking jokes will keep the adults entertained as well as the kids. If you are a fan, you will want to add this one to your library.
Though the animation is done in 2K, these types of movies upscale to 4K very well. The HDR/WCG make the images really pop with color, especially the primary colors. You can see a lot of details, even in the shadows. Basically, this movie is a lot of eye-candy. The soundtrack is lively and engaging with plenty of surround action and deep, powerful bass.
Included are a Blu-ray and Digital Copy of the movie. Also included are: Mini Movies, Music Videos and the Lego Ninjago Tv series sneak peek & more.
