Six young ninjas Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Nya are tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they’re ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.
Led by Master Wu, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting father against son, the epic showdown tests these fierce but undisciplined modern-day ninjas as they learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash the inner power of Spinjitzu.
Awesome and hilarious. That’s how I describe this movie. It totally different from any movie that require ‘good vs evil’ and ‘how I found out my parent is bad guy’ plot. In the first hour, Lloyd seems acknowledge that his father is bad guy and everyday he has to dealing with the disgusting stare from other citizen and schoolmates. Fortunately he has five best friends who always believe in him. However, their trust kinda cracked after Llyod accidentally release the greatest monster into NinjaGo.
The funniest factor in the movie is the dialogue. No cheesy dialogue, thank Goodness. Everything is funny, entertaining and natural. I love how quirky Garmadon is, especially when he talk about why he wants conquer NinjaGo.
The bonding time between Llyod and Garmadon is enjoyable. These scenes teachs us how to forgives the past and find the peace within ourselves. This is why I say LEGO NinjaGo Movie is awesome, hilarious, but at same time, is heartwarming. It educate all-ages audience with smart humor. They manage to be funny and educated in 101 minutes. Something we’ve been missed in these past years.
You may notice how many parents (especially in my country) has been speak up about ‘This movie is not children-friendly!’. Well, not all movies is for kids. But thankfully The LEGO NinjaGo Movie can be watch for all-ages audience, so if you want to bring your kids to the cinema, pick this movie. You’ll be thankful after this.
It’s really fun.
