Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This series picks up the Jurassic World tale shortly after the events of The Secret Exhibit and presumes viewers know both the backstory and the characters ahead of time. There's no introductory phase to help newcomers get up to speed, which makes it difficult for them to follow as characters come and go and events unfold quickly. Because Legend of Isla Nublar also bridges the kid-geared Lego Jurassic World stories and the more intense 2015 feature film Jurassic World, it has trouble nailing down a definitive target audience as well.

That said, there's always something visually and comically appealing about Lego productions like this one. Small details -- the disproportionate size of a coffee cup relative to the character using it, or the image of a disc of blocky leaves broken from a tree by a hungry herbivore -- make its animation unique and relatable to viewers familiar with Lego building sets. Even without a compelling storyline, Lego's brand name will draw an audience for this action-packed series.
