“The LEGO Batman”, Batman confronts the villain with green hair and clown face, The Joker, who attempts to destroy the city of Gotham, built on an infinite abyss. The joker has set a bomb and if the Dark Knight does not arrive, the citizens will be lost. It is The Lego Batman that brings together the characters from the DC Comics universe and is a spin-off of the magnificent 2014 Lego movie.
"Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman." And of course, this is a parody of the character. Batman likes lobster and rock music, and he's a first-rate braggart. He thinks that there is no big enemy but the challenges are better overcome with the help of others, even in the case of a hero like Batman; Is the team - and the family - which makes it stronger, tells us the film that bears his name.
A vertiginous rhythm and a sparkling variegation that almost leaves us dizzy characterize this adventure in the city of the building.
Chris McKay (who was the editor of The Lego Movie) directs and demonstrates how well he knows the world that recreates, giving life to the great team of villains and characters in Batman mythology, after which there is a formidable number of well-known voices: Will Arnett , Ralph Fiennes, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, among others.
"The LEGO Batman Movie" If you want to make a better world, look in the mirror and make a change, is one of the many sentences in Seth Grahame-Smith's script. The lego Batman movie has the infantile, imaginative and fun spirit of its predecessor, but it is also a little more crazed.

In appearance LEGO Batman is a light and colorful film of one of the darkest characters in the world of comics. Kids will see an entertaining story and frantic animation with LEGO pieces and dolls. But the film takes on a different value if it is seen with adult eyes. And more of an adult who has grown up with Batman.
The release of the new LEGO movie, After Christopher Nolan's The Knight of the Night, this is the film that most reflects on Batman's identity, his status as a hero and his fragility. Here we have an egocentric Batman, a multimillionaire with disguise and technology of first, an idol of Gothic City that can solve everything without help of nobody. But also a lonely guy who fears having a family, because he could not bear to lose it again.
The filial relationship with his butler Alfred, the possibility of recognizing and feeling proud of a son like Robin, and even accepting that without the Joker, his greatest antagonist, Batman would not be the same.
A highlight of the film is how he digs into Batman mythology to satirize his appearance (his cavernous voice, his trademark sit-ups, all his physical versions in the movies and in the TV series of the sixties) and also to expose Especially the sentimental affairs that a tough guy can not afford.
The film is full of references to popular culture and is problematized with questions that can occur to a child. Why does Batman continue to fight the same villains? Does not he do his job well? Does not Alfred alone have a family? Why are the other superheroes not friends of Batman? Is Batman the main villain of his own story? LEGO Batman is a complex object wrapped in a toy box. But unlike LEGO Movie (2014) that showed its real meaning only towards the end, with a strong message to the adults who have stopped playing and to construct imaginary worlds, here LEGO Batman shows both his. Letters that in its last part when it tries to solve the raised subjects and appear several goings and turns on the importance of working in equipment or of that Batman is not alone in the world, the film becomes predictable and even visually repetitive. Although he loses some points, LEGO Batman presents a less dark and more creative way, a path in which the dimensions of the character are mainly understood and that should be followed in each new version to revitalize this superhero of almost 80 years.
