Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Lego Batman Movie starts well with a very witty title sequence parody and an over the top action sequence featuring almost every Bat villain ever (even some you’ve never heard of). The issue is that whilst it does continue to amuse, the film is too long and whilst it packs itself with jokes its more miss than hit. This said Will Arnett’s Batman is a joy and Fiennes, Dawson and Cera offer excellent support. It’s mad, it’s silly, kids love it and there’s enough batman jokes (from early Adam West era to Keaton and beyond) to keep adults entertained.
Best Bit: Bane.
