Storyline Heading
The battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd's dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas, who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their inner power.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Action Adventure - Like the other two feature films based on the popular toy building blocks, this is an animated comedy adventure, this time with a martial arts theme. Fans of Jackie Chan should especially enjoy, for in addition to providing the voice for one of the main characters, he also appears in some live action scenes that begin and end the film. The film gets its PG rating due to the action violence, which is on par with what's found on kids' adventure series on television, so most parents will find this film to be safe viewing for their children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average ...feels crass, bloated, and unnecessary. At its best, it recycles elements from The LEGO Movie in ways that feel cheap and redundant. At its worst, it's a tedious bore. The comedy is sporadically amusing but never laugh-aloud funny and the drama, which one might charitably argue is trying for a Toy Story-level emotional response, fails utterly.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average The pieces are all there, but they never really snap into place... ...only superficially resembles its source material, and it pales in comparison to its cinematic predecessors. Maybe such diminishing returns were inevitable. It would be impossible to recreate the groundbreaking, lightning-in-a-bottle innovation of 2014's "The Lego Movie.”

NY Post Full Review
Good Everything is still mostly awesome. ..."Lego Movie” series — clever, heartwarming and hilarious — rises above. The latest, "The Lego Ninjago Movie,” is a chip off the old blocks. ...this entry is actually the most family-friendly of the lot.
