‘The Lego Batman Movie’ Shoots Above 90 Percent On Rotten Tomatoes

The first reviews for The Lego Batman Movie are in! With 17 reviews in at the time of this writing, the film holds a 94 percent on Rotten Tomatoes with only 1 negative review.

Some of the Monkeys Fighting Robots team got to check out the movie, and their reviews are in the works. Until then, however, let’s take a look at what some other critics have to say about The Lego Batman Movie.

Alonso Duralde, The Wrap:

“Less a sequel to The Lego Movie than a big-screen, family-friendly version of Robot Chicken, The Lego Batman Movie gleefully parodies every mass-media iteration of its hero, from the serials to Super Friends and from Adam West to Ben Affleck.”

Sean O’Connel, Cinemablend:

“The Lego Batman Movie is screamingly hilarious, ladling pop-culture references and comic-book punchlines with blistering speed and pinpoint accuracy. One joke, involving a pivotal scene from Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire, made me cackle until I cried.”

Oliver Lyttelton, The Playlist:

“Lord knows the superhero genre could use some fun poked at it and we were psyched to see the film, but while there’s some fun to be had, it can’t help but feel like a missed opportunity.”

Matt Donato, We Got This Covered:

“LEGO’s Batman comedy is at its best when thumbing through a rolodex of obscure franchise references, which will please both Batfans and mainstream audiences alike.”

Plot synopsis: “In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: “The LEGO Batman Movie.” But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.”

The Lego Batman Movie stars Will Arnett as the Caped Crusader, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Mariah Carey as Mayor Grange, and Michael Cera as Dick Grayson/Robin.

The film lands in theaters on February 10.
