The LEGO Batman Movie

Will Arnett voices the blocky Dark Knight once again for this follow-up to 2014's The LEGO Movie, now putting Batman in the spotlight. From the director of Robot Chicken and Moral Orel, co-voiced by Michael Cera as LEGO Robin, Rosario Dawson as LEGO Batgirl, Zach Galifianakis as LEGO Joker, and Ralph Fiennes as LEGO Alfred.

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

We tend to think most big animated family flicks are children’s films with enough stuff for grownups to enjoy. I’m convinced The LEGO Batman Movie works the other way around. By mocking damn well nearly everything in Batman’s extremely long history, the film is out on a mission to tickle adult nerd ribcages. Your kids won’t get most of the references, I’m sure, but more than half the jokes work on a pie-to-the-face silliness that it won’t matter whose face gets pied.

Your average Pixar comedy thumbs its nose at a great many things, but "The Lego Batman Movie" is a helter-skelter lampoon in the daftly exhilarating spirit of Mad magazine and the "Naked Gun" films.

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

The inept egomaniac is a time-honoured comedy archetype - think Jack Sparrow, Daffy Duck or Donald Trump - but thanks to razor-sharp writing this Batman is fresh and fun.

It doesn't have the heart, the depth or the novelty of the first Lego movie, but it is relentlessly, consistently funny - which excuses everything.

Seem intent on rewarding the general public for brand loyalty, while jumping on as many bandwagons as they can.

In its best moments, this gag-a-minute Bat-roast serves as a reminder that, in the right hands, a sharp comic scalpel can be an instrument of revelation as well as ridicule.

Although there is still much to enjoy here, this DC Comics-fueled Lego adventure fails to clear the creative bar so energetically raised by co-directors and writers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller back in 2014.

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.
