Six young ninjas Lloyd (Dave Franco), Jay (Kumail Nanjiani), Kai (Michael Pena), Cole (Fred Armisen), Zane (Zach Woods) and Nya (Abbi Jacobson) are tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago (IMDB).
This is the third installment in the LEGO movie franchise and another one is already in the works. Apparently, The LEGO Batman Movie is much better than this one because there is a lot of adult humor mixed into it and hardly any in this latest installment. Having never seen a LEGO movie I went into this one hoping for a funny film because of what I heard about the earlier one. This film is entertaining but I really enjoy kids’ films that acknowledge the adult audience in some way like most of the Pixar films as an example. This film is visually well made because of the attention to detail is spectacular which most moviegoers expect.
The plotline is simple enough and the kids will enjoy the numerous combat scenes. I would definitely go to a matinee to save some cash.
