Certainly not the worst film of the year, but very disappointing when stacked up against _The LEGO Movie_ and _LEGO Batman_. I think this one might **actually** just be for kids.
_Final rating:★★ – Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal._
The _Lego_ film franchise had a nice run in its first two outings. The phenomenal response to 2014’s _The Lego Movie_ and, earlier this year, the popular emergence of _The Lego Batman Movie_ proved profitable and entertaining for the gimmicky concept that inexplicably captured the imaginations of youngsters and oldsters alike. The appeal for the yellowish block toy figures was undeniably infectious at the box office’ while leaving one wondering what was next in line for the _Lego_-mania to explore in terms of a creative nod.
Well, the third time around for this animated film franchise does not necessarily invite any charm for the toy-making product that found its welcomed footing in 2011 from its Danish originators. Hence, **The Lego Ninjago Movie** is the current rain on the treasured parade of the first two installments because this flaccid fantasy shows signs of an inspired treat that has gone tepid. Clearly, **Ninjago** is the bottom rung of the laughter ladder despite its occasional invitation of free-spirited gags.
It is a crying shame that **Ninjago** struggles with its irreverent approach because the whole affair feels synthetically forced in throwaway goofiness. One would think that a third sequel to a catchy _Lego_ landscape would not peter out after just a trilogy of films. There is no excuse for **Ninjago** to wallow in breezy mediocrity when it boasts three directors, an army of collaborative writers and a host of who’s who in terms of the top-notch vocal performers that commit to this flimsy fantasy. Indeed, the majority of kiddies will probably eat this latest project up without reservation. However, some of these tykes may still wonder why the spark for these young kung fu plastic protagonists may lack the frivolous flavor as experienced in the aforementioned _Lego_ predecessors. This suggestion might be simply straight-forward and logical: skip the sluggish humor of **Ninjago’s** exhaustive display of tired antics and revisit the original blueprint–the TV series _Lego Ninjago: Masters Of Spinjitsu_.
The premise behind Ninjago involves a band of high schoolers whose secret identities as ninjas are sacred. The fighting force consists of the following young heroes: Lloyd aka The Green Ninja (Dave Franco), Cole (Fred Arisen), Kai (Michael Pena), Zane (Zach Woods), Jay (Kumail Nanjiani) and Nya (Abbi Jacobson). Specifically, Lloyd is at the center of major angst given that his father is the notorious Lord Garmadon (Justin Theroux). Apparently, the villainous Lord Garmadon has a corruptible urge to terrorize the city of Ninjago…something that does not sit well with the skillful young ninjas. Naturally, there is an understandable estrangement between the heroic and conscientious son Lloyd and his devil-dealing Daddy Dearest Garmadon. Yeah…this is ripped from the _Star Wars _playbook with the intentional Luke Skywalker/Darth Vader dynamic in full circle. Of course, this is a heavy torment for Lloyd because he has to carry this overwhelming secret that his deplorable old man is the team’s chief nemesis.
Predictably, Lloyd and his butt-kicking buddies follow their instincts as they are the only real deal in town that can confront the wicked warlord and his minions. Lord Garmadon will stop it at nothing to torture the souls of Ninjago which, incidentally, is a city made up of…you guessed it…Lego blocks. Whether hounding the city limits with happy-munching sharks or causing chaos with the ‘mechs’ as attack weapons the kung fu crew tries its best to contain the manic madness set forth by the detestable Garmadon.
**The Lego Ninjago Movie** has its moments of spryness and there are some surrealistic and sassy bits that pops up to one’s amusement (a giant furry cat overseeing the destruction being done in the plastic-built haven for instance). Still, the fruitless film does nothing to ignite anything distinctive or fresh besides its pandering pulse to push Lego merchandise as a commercialism crossover of sorts. Sure, the previous two editions had the same agenda but at least there was a pretense of a constructed story of impish ideas, off-the-cuff smirking and inventive heartiness that fueled the _Lego_ lunacy as engineered by the Phil Lord/Chris Miller oiled production machine. Sadly,** Ninjago** goes through the disjointed motions with slapdish action, lazy jokes but eye-popping set pieces that hopefully will encourage the tykes to purchase Lego toys in droves for the upcoming holiday sales.
Honorable mention goes to Theroux’ dastardly take on the devious demon Garmadon, one of the few saving graces for the grown-ups to embrace in this wacky wasteland of yellow-faced toy pegs that failed to hit any tangy targets in its questionable brand of joyous absurdity. Plus, it is a momentary thrill to see martial arts icon Jackie Chan, both in real flesh and animation, doing double duty as both a wise old guide Master Wu using his wisdom to guide the courageous youthful ninjas on their quest for righteousness as well as garrulous shopkeeper spinning ancient tales.
One is not quite sure where the true forum for **The Lego Ninjago Movie** should be promoted…on the straight-to-video shelves or merely being trapped in a cluttered toy box with other forgettable action figures.

Disappointing But Not a Bad Movie
I myself am a huge ninjago fan, I’ve been a ninjago fan almost since the series started, so you can imagine this movie is a dream come true, except I can’t help but be sorely disappointed with this film. It doesn’t live up to the ninjago brand I’ve known for 9 years at this point (2020). ( the film released towards the end of 2017). The Ninja characters except for Lloyd barely do anything in the movie, their characters aren’t fleshed out and I really didn’t feel for them as characters. The movie spent way too much time on the father son arc instead of spending time on other things based off the show that are more interesting. The Ninja also feel more like power rangers in this movie, they have vehicles that are way too big (however nicely modeled), and they attend high school. The arc of having a kid being hated in high school and secretly he’s a hero has been done so many times, and even that is not touched upon a whole lot, only in the beginning of the movie. I understand this movie is trying to differentiate itself from the show, but these things just don’t work for me. I will say, as an animated film, it’s not bad. The voice acting is very good, there are a ton of funny jokes, the animation is top notch, and it has a couple of scenes I really liked. If you’re looking for a nice family movie to watch at night, you probably won’t hate the experience watching this movie, you might even like it. But unfortunately for me it doesn’t work a whole not in a “Ninjago” aspect, however it’s far from the worst animated movie out there. 6/10
Everything is Not-So-Awesome
When the ill-advised-yet-shockingly-awesome Lego Movie came out in 2014, it was expected to be an insipid toy-commercial with little actual filmic value. Thankfully, we were wrong, and even got a Batman follow-up that was nearly as fun and smart. Now, with Ninjago, we’ve finally gotten the needlessly obnoxious Lego outing we always expected. Neither as clever nor as fun as its predecessors, the childlike innovation of the franchise, and its commitment to authentic Lego brick usage, has largely taken a backseat to mediocre parody and generic morality. In it, a Power-Rangers-esque group of secret-teenage-ninjas-in-giant-mech-suits regularly has to fight off Batman / President Awesome rip-off Garmodon from conquering their city. As a disaster-heavy, giant robot film with cool effects, it’s slightly better than Transformers because it doesn’t take itself so seriously. Otherwise, it’s fairly similar: indecipherable kaiju action, needlessly elaborate lore, and top-to-bottom weak characters. With 13 different credited writers and 3 directors, as a whole, Ninjago contains no interesting point-of-view, made with the uniqueness and clarity of a money-focused committee. However, it certainly has individual moments that work: the cat attack, the amputated arm, the list of fake ninja movies, the teen-robot, Kumail Najiani. Ninjago is essentially a spoof film, and its positives are largely humor-based. However, where the best spoofs are satirical, somewhat purposeful and reverent to their sources, the worst ones just come off as cynical and lazy. Unfortunately, Ninjago leans much more towards the latter, removing a Lego-brick from the quality instead of adding to it. It’s not the worst kids movie of 2017, but in this absurd reality in which we live, I can firmly say it’s the worst Lego movie of 2017.
