The LEGO Batman Movie

The LEGO Batman Movie

Animation, Action, Adventure

Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.

The critical consensus

An entertaining, if frenetic, vehicle for Arnett’s Bale-inspired Bats that packs plenty of laughs.

****(*)Neil Smith, Total Film, 04/02/2017

Will Arnett voices a brilliantly gruff, macho, humourless Dark Knight in this expressive, cinematic and subversive Gotham City satire.

****(*)Steve Rose, The Guardian, 04/02/2017

The LEGO Batman Movie delivers a deliriously fun ride that likely to stand up surprisingly well amongst the rest of this year's superhero films.

****(*)Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent, 04/02/2017

It doesn't quite match the exuberant spirit of The LEGO Movie, nor does it have a song to rival 'Everything Is Awesome', but it is still tremendous fun.

****(*)James Mottram, The List, 06/02/2017

A highly quotable, visual treat that’s packed with in-jokes but is entertaining enough on its own terms to work for fans and non-fans alike. The best Batman film in years.

****(*)Jonathan Pile, Empire Online, 07/02/2017

A very silly movie that quietly does its bit in setting moral standards for young audiences.

Manuela Lazic, Little White Lies, 07/02/2017

We all know that the film exists at least partly for merchandising reasons and that it has been very carefully assembled to appeal both to wide-eyed children and their jaded parents. Even so, when it has all been joined together with such gleeful expertise, nobody is likely to complain.

A funny, post-modern riff on the entire canon of big and small screen adaptations of the Caped Crusader.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 09/02/2017

Why can’t non-Lego movies be as funny, exciting and weirdly moving as this?

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 09/02/2017

A hyperactive, helter-skelter comedy, it is often very silly and extremely funny. But it loses steam once the convoluted plot takes over and the relentless pace grows exhausting.

The bromance between Batman and the Joker is explored in this knowing kids’ film littered with daft gags.
