    The LEGO Ninjago Movie Review

    -

    The LEGO Ninjago Movie is the third installment in the LEGO film franchise, and to be quite honest it shows.

    In a faraway land known as Ninjago, young Master Builder Lloyd Garmadon and his fellow friends struggle to battle the peer pressures of high school while also keeping their ninja warrior identities a secret as they fight to protect the city from the evil warlord Garmadon.

    Under the teachings of his instructor Master Wu, Lloyd struggles to be the protector of Ninjago as the Green Ninja due to his constant reminder of being pitted against his father and being the most hated person in the city.

    After a battle gone horribly wrong, it is up to Lloyd and his friends to team up with his warlord father Garmadon to bring peace back to the city and unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu.

    While not necessarily a bad film, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, unfortunately, lacks that certain “spark” its predecessors The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie had.

    The film’s humor, while funny, at times felt forced and seemed to stray away from the focus of the plot. Although, there is one joke in the movie involving the ninja’s “ultimate secret weapon” that did get a really good laugh from the audience.

    Aside from that, the film itself and the world building (no pun intended) is just as creatively stunning, fun to watch and explore like the previous two films.

    The fight sequences are also enjoyable, even though at times it felt like you were watching a LEGO Transformers Movie rather than a ninja film.

    However, two things that stood out with this film are Jackie Chan’s cameo in his role as Master Wu, and the moral of the story about finding peace, forgiveness, and second chances.

    When the main character Lloyd does not see eye to eye with his warlord father, the film does a good job demonstrating to young kids about mending broken bonds while finding the peace and strength in yourself to see past hurt to forgive of those who have wronged you.

    Jackie Chan, who voiced Master Wu, serves as Lloyd’s mentor during the duration of the film and helps him understand his true power as the Green Ninja while also overcoming his “daddy problems” and finding inner peace.

    It was fun to see a short of Mr. Miyagi type character portrayed on the big screen again.

    Overall, it was enjoyable to watch. But it is obvious this film was aimed towards a more younger audience. Nevertheless, families will enjoy this film just fine and get a good few laughs from it.

    Overall Score: 7/10
