My review of The LEGO BATMAN Movie, at Crosswalk.com. This hilarious, eye-popping spin-off to 2014’s The LEGO Movie gives us a Batman with attachment issues, along with a whole world of DC Characters.
An excerpt from my review:
“A relentless send-up of popular movie tropes, filled with self-referential digs and meta-level parody” that is “a great Batman movie in its own right, one in which the ego-centric hero revels in the very awesomeness of his own excess.”
