This kids movie gets a solid 4 Icees (out of 5).  Is it as funny/original as the original (Lego Movie)?  No, but it does a darn fine job of being a sequel. It has humor, both for kids and adults. Of course, since it is a kids’ movie, it also has to have a “message”.  This has that too.

I personally enjoyed the first half of the movie more than the second. To me the jokes were funnier and as the movie goes on the “message” gets a bit overwhelming. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still pretty funny, but just a bit overdone on the sappy.  The focus is on Batman (of course), but more so on his lonely side, missing family and also his desire to be a one-bat show. This is of course shattered with the adoption of Richard “Dick” Grayson, aka Robin and the retirement of Commissioner Gordon, who is replaced by Commissioner Gordon. You’ll see what I mean when you see it.

The thing I liked about this is that not only was it funny for the kids, but they did a good job of throwing in jokes that were directly aimed at the adults, including references to the original Batman series, Adam West style. That helps to make this a movie that everyone can enjoy.

There is something during the credits but nothing thereafter.  Enjoy… I know I did.
