He… is… a Super Hero – Review of “The Lego Batman Movie” (2017)

The film starts out with a typical Batman vs. Joker scenario. Not long after, Batman longs for a family. He meets an enthusiastic orphan named Dick Grayson. He is excited to call Batman his dad, which Batman doesn’t want. So, Grayson calls him, “Padre”. Their collaboration grows into a bond. Alfred the butler and Barbara Gordon also join.

I enjoyed the movie and thought it was sweet with the importance of family and working together. There was a moment, though, where there was no conflict for a few minutes or so. If I hadn’t been with a friend, I would have walked out of the theatre. But I’m glad I stayed because the conflict grew stronger as the movie progressed.

I was also surprised that the enthusiastic kid turned out to be Robin. I have heard that Robin is usually similar to Batman with his personality. He is also usually not Batman’s son—just a sidekick.

Another aspect I didn’t expect were the villains in the sky area that came from other movies, such as the terminators, wicked witch of the west, and Voldemort. Voldemort used the levitating spell rather than an unforgivable curse. Maybe J.K. Rowling or the Harry Potter movie producers wouldn’t let them.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie very much. Although I was never a fan of Batman, I would give this film 5 out of 5 stars.
