The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)
Movie Review #thelegoninjagomovie #moviereview #jimbobtalksmovies
. SPOILERS (You have been warned). The Lego Ninjago Movie stars Dave Franco as Lloyd, the Green Ninja as he and his friends fight against the evil Garmadon (who happens to be Lloyd's father) as he tries to take over the city of Ninjago. This movie features a great cast of voice actors with the likes of Franco and Jackie Chan and amazing special effects that sometimes it's really hard to tell that special effects have been used because it looks so realistic, which is one aspect I loved in The Lego Movie and Lego Batman but it falls flat with its overly cliche storyline and characters and overall just not as good as the other two. This movies predecessors have amazing comedy and are fun movies with lots of references to other movies but Ninjago sticks to its own thing and parts just became boring. This isn't a bad movie there are some fun moments and who doesn't love Jackie Chan? I enjoyed the storyline of what it was but it didn't quite do it for me it terms of when it delivered, it was pretty much Power Rangers but Lego ninja's. Each character has an element such as Fire, water, earth, ice and lightning but Lloyd is yet to discover what his power is and towards the end we find out Lloyd's element is Life, which was awesome because it reminded of Kung Fu Panda 3's power of Chi (life-force energy) but Lloyd didn't use any of this power but the others did, which was hugely disappointing. The movie was one massive build up to eventually showing what power Lloyd had but once we find out, he does nothing with it. Overall The Lego Ninjago Movie is enjoyable in parts but not as good as the other 2. Ninjago gets #6
/10 from @JimbobTalksMovies.
