A movie packed with Spinjitzu arrived in Alva this past weekend. Moviegoers young and old were treated to ninety minutes of Lego packed action in The Lego Ninjago Movie. The defense of Ninjago City was led by the young Master Builder Lloyd, also known as the Green Ninja, along with his unlikely friends. While this movie did not garnish as much acclaim, the thrills that this movie offers are in the voices of Fred Armisen, Dave Franco, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, and many more. Hearing the voice of Jackie Chan as Master Wu made this experience truly worth while. It conjured up memories of my own Ninjago Lego days. When compared to the first two Lego movies, The Lego Ninjago Movie lacks surprise.
The Lego Ninjago Movie had a disappointingly small amount of humor and few unbelievable emotional scenes. The Lego Ninjago Movie definitely appears to be geared more for the younger audience. Within the movie, a group of kid ninjas fight a bad guy who is actually Green Ninja’s father and if you have ever seen any family movie, you know how the movie ends. While The Lego Ninjago Movie struggles to compete with the other two Lego movies in most categories, there is definitely one area where Ninjago rose above.
The animation of Ninjago is by far the best of the three films. The fight scenes almost made up for the scenes that contained little excitement. Mixing Lego and real elements was extremely visually appealing and also has not been seen in the first two Lego movies. The action is truly unbelievable .I’ll give The Lego Ninjago Movie three green ninjas out of five. While I was not as im-pressed by this film compared to the first two Lego movies, it still was entertaining and provided great enjoyment for the younger audiences.
