The Lego Batman Movie released with an aim to build from the amazing predecessor: The Lego Movie. With a yet another star-studded cast led by Will Arnett as Batman, The Lego Batman Movie released as a classic super hero movie with a satirical tone.
The grand failure of Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad is no hidden knowledge. Producing arguably the two worst films of 2016, Warner Brothers took the route most celebrities take after a downfall and participated in a roast festival. Batman’s arc about finding family, although slightly cheesy, provided a fresh angle on viewing the hidden demons inside the heroes. However, the unoriginal superhero plot line of putting the world at stake deteriorated the quality of the stop-motion feature. What I found fresh, however, was Batman’s relationship with the Joker. Instead of a head to head battle, the Joker’s schemes had the kid-friendly motivation in the form of Batman’s ambivalence towards his villains (who he always defeats).
You might ask: what was so different about The Lego Movie? The Lego Movie introduced a dystopian world focused more on the victory of creativity and added a phenomenally deep layer with its later twist that rang the hearts of many. It’s hard to blame Warner Brothers for its decision to cater towards the younger audiences. After all, people do associate Lego with children. But that didn’t take away from the ending, if anything, the emotional exit from the Lego world made The Lego Movie one of the best “animated” feature that year.
‘Black Panther’: More Than Just a Film, a Social Commentary
What Lego Batman lacked in emotional depth, they made up for with the ensemble. Batman doesn’t only fight Joker, Bane, and Catwoman, he fights enemies from the Warner Brothers library – be it Sauron, King Kong, Godzilla, or even Voldemort. Lego Batman gives the audience a look at Warner Brothers’ intellectual property vault and questions those who expected an emotional gut punch, “why so serious?”
