The LEGO Batman Movie Blu-ray Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 12, 2017
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Kidzworld has the Blu-ray for The LEGO Batman Movie. Are the extras fun? Does it look and sound like in the theater? Great for collecting or gifting? Check our Blu-ray review!

By: Lynn Barker

In The LEGO Batman Movie, Bruce Wayne/Batman (voice of Will Arnett) is still the pride of Gotham City but he’s really secretly lonely. Can suave Bruce/Batman ever learn to work with others? Will forming a crime-fighting posse make The Dark Knight a team player and well as provide a family for the loner superhero? Will his war with The Joker escalate?

Three Little Words…I Hate You

The Joker (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) has gathered together known C-level villains like Condiment King (who shoots ketchup and mustard), Gentleman Ghost, etc. and is massively attacking the city. Batman hopes his dorky theme song will frighten Joker off. When face to plastic mini-fig face, Batman tells Joker he doesn’t do relationships thus he can’t call Joker his main nemesis. Sad, Joker just wants to hear three little words; “I hate you”.

Commissioner Barbara Gordon

When Jim Gordon retires as City Commissioner, his daughter Barbara (Rosario Dawson), later to be Bat Girl, is taking over. She kicks butt since she proudly graduated from “Harvard for Police”. Batman, who is attracted to her, refuses to work with her to halt crime. He returns to Wayne Manor to microwave lobster dinners for one and ignore his butler/surrogate father Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) while laughing at the end of the movie Jerry Maguire by himself in his giant home movie theater. Bummer.

Whoops! Who is this Kid?

Bruce discovers that he’s accidentally adopted a wide-eyed kid named Dick Grayson (voice of Michael Cera) from the local orphanage who wants to call him “dad”. In order to thwart Joker’s latest scheme, Batman coldly uses the kid, who puts on a skimpy outfit as Robin, to help him get into Superman’s Fortress of Solitude where a projector capable of launching people into the famous Phantom Zone prison is hidden.

Party On?

At the Fortress, Batman discovers a huge Justice League party going on and he wasn’t invited! Superman (voice of Channing Tatum) even asks him to take a picture of everybody while he is otherwise ignored. Meanwhile poor Robin risks his tiny LEGO life to get the projector all alone. Joker is sent into the Phantom Zone but, yikes, it is what he wanted. He recruits a whole new baddie army and busts them out with him!

Can We Be a Team?

Joker and his new army bust into the Batcave and it’s time for loner Batman to work with Barbara (Bat Girl), Alfred (who dons an early 1960’s Batman TV show outfit) and Robin as his new surrogate friend/family/team to stop Joker and this new mega-herd of villains from totaling Gotham City. Can he actually cooperate long enough to accomplish the task?

Special Extra Features

  • Original Animation Shorts include the suspicion that Batman is Canadian, Harley Quinn interviewing Joker on TV, Butler Alfred’s cooking show and a search for just the right laser gun sound effect.  All are cute and worth a watch.

  • One Brick at a Time: Making the LEGO Batman Movie – this short “making of” feature includes info on building the story and making the film different and better. All film departments are covered with the voice actors playing with their mini-figs and more. Fun!
  • Short featurettes: Inside Wayne Manor offers Batman taking us on a tour of his “sick” house, Brick by Brick: Making of the LEGO Batman mostly features the voice actors talking about character relationships, Behind the Brick has each little character stressing why the film is really about him or her, Me and My Mini-Fig features short clips of the voice actors discovering and playing with their character mini-figs, Comic Con Panel is a LEGO fig recreation of the real thing with Batman moderating…badly.  All of these little features are funny if short.

  • The Top 3 Rebrick Contest Winners presents three short LEGO Batman films made by fans- Will Arnett introduces them. Cute.
  • Trailers and Social Promos are meant to sell the film. Some are worth a watch but they seem like padding to me.
  • Director and Crew Audio Commentary over the film is actually pretty hilarious as well as providing some insider info. This one is entertaining.

Wrapping Up

The LEGO Batman film’s voice actors are great, songs are fun, action using the LEGO bricks is pretty amazing and the story works as does the message that friends can be family.

This Blu-ray looks and sounds really good and Extras are fun but perhaps too much promotion material used to sell the movie is presented. The Commentary by director and crew is quite funny as well as giving us insider info so it’s better than many. Like we did for the film in theaters, we go four stars.

The LEGO Batman Movie Blu-ray Rating: 4
