It became a critical and commercial success and received critical acclaim for its animation, story, humor, and acting.

The Lego Movie is the first entry in what would become the franchise of the same name, which includes three more films—The Lego Batman Movie (2017), The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017), and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (2019).

Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★

"Pretty cool family movie, which had brilliant animation and quite funny characters too. My favourite character was Batman because he was a comedic mastermid, though he was a bit creepy because from time to time he'd pop out of nowhere. I also liked Emmett because he was too normal (apparently that's possible). It was a bit weird at times but still pretty good. The last line in the movie is 'Lego is an adult thing.' The best part was when the cat poster started talking. Overall a funny film which I would recommend to anyone!"

Stewart - ★★★★★

"Everything is awesome! Especially in this film! If ever there's a film that sums up the Mix Up Theatre spirit it's this madcap animated comedy that has soooo many characters in it - and all brilliant! Excellet voice cast also."
