Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though there is some semblance of a story to engage kids who are already Hero Factory fans, the movie is little more than a lengthy commercial for Lego products. The villains have escaped the Hero Factory, and each has a corresponding hero to do battle with. Each also has its own color, style, and weaponry, but that doesn't make the characters easy to keep track of. The story is little more than a vehicle to show what each character/toy can do.

The battle scenes aren't bad, and the heroes don't immediately emerge victorious. Nonetheless, neither the story nor the action scenes overcome the viewer's feeling that the audience is being sold a bill of goods.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
