Starring: Will Arnett, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis, Mariah Carey

OUR RATING: ★★★★☆

Story: Animated spinoff action comedy directed by Chris McKay. Batman has few people in his life besides his trusty butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes), and he spends much of his time secluded in his Batcave. But everything changes when he meets Dick Grayson/Robin (Michael Cera) and Barbara Gordon/Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), which is probably for the best, considering Batman’s nemesis, the Joker (Zach Galifianakis), is still out there in the Lego universe.

But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

Verdict: This may not be your typical Batman movie but it sure is an entertaining and funny one. The jokes come thick an fast, the pacing was good and the story flowed nicely. It may bot be as good as it’s predecessor, The Lego Movie, but it’s still pretty fun and enjoyable.

[first lines]
Batman: [voice over] Black. All important movies start with a black screen. And music. Edgy, scary music that would make a parent or studio executive nervous. And logos. Really long and dramatic logos. Warner Bros. Why not “Warner Brothers”? I don’t know. DC. The house that Batman built. Yeah, what, Superman? Come at me, bro. I’m your Kryptonite. Hmm. Not sure what RatPac does, but that logo is macho. I dig it. Okay. Get yourself ready for some reading. “If you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make a change. Hooo.” No. I said that. Batman is very wise. I also have huge pecs and a nine-pack. Yeah, I’ve got an extra ab. Now, let’s start the movie.

Batman: At the what? The old family… Oh, yes! I see what you mean. Look at that! The old gang. Yeah. No, I wasn’t.
Alfred Pennyworth: I see. Sir, if you don’t mind my saying, I’m a little concerned. I’ve seen you go through similar phases in 2016 and 2012 and 2008 and 2005 and 1997 and 1995 and 1992 and 1989 and that weird one in 1966. Do you want to talk about how you’re feeling right now?
Batman: I don’t talks about feelings, Alfred. I don’t have any, I’ve never seen one. I’m a night-stalking, crime-fighting vigilante, and a heavy metal rapping machine. I don’t feel anything emotionally, except for rage. Twenty-four-seven, three hundred and sixty-five, at a million percent. And if you think that there’s something behind that, then you’re crazy. Good night, Alfred.
Alfred Pennyworth: Sir, it’s morning.

Alfred Pennyworth: No.
Batman: It’s clowns.
Alfred Pennyworth: No. it’s being part of a family again.
Batman: Nope. Now it’s snake clown because you put that idea in my head.


 

Batman: Computer, how do I put The Joker in Arkham Asylum, quickest route, no freeways?
[we the computer is in sleep mode]
Batman: Computer, do you hear me?
[suddenly we see Alfred]
Alfred Pennyworth: Hello, Master Bruce. I have just taken away your computer privilege.
Batman: Gasp.
Alfred Pennyworth: Sir, it’s time for you to stop this unhealthy behavior. You can’t spend the rest of your life alone, dressed in black and staying up all night. Sir, you need to take responsibility for your life, and it starts by raising the young orphan you adopted.
Batman: I’m sorry, I literally have no idea what you’re talking about.
Alfred Pennyworth: The young orphan you adopted at the gala.
Batman: I thought I was being sarcastic.


 

[we see Robin peering close into the camera and whispering]
