The Lego Batman Movie! (Review)

I'm not a fan of Lego or Batman so this defintely wasn't my choice of movie. I volunteer with a charity called Spectrum which I absolutely love but there are times when I end up doing things, I would rather not. This time was different!

Batman continues fighting crime in Gotham City. During a mission to prevent the Joker from destroying the city, Batman hurts his arch-rival's feelings by telling him he is not as important in his life as he thinks he is, leading Joker to seek the ultimate revenge on him.
The film explores the difficult relationships in Batman's personal life and how few meaningful ones he has. Despite the loneliness, he doesn't see it until someone else introduces him once again to the power of friendship and family.
This is a very heartwarming movie and I love the humorous elements in it. It defintely lends itself to adult humour in parts but as someone who's not introduced in Lego or Batman, I thoroughly appreciate the efforts to bring some enjoyment to the experience.
I think the scenes of Batman as a man at the party were the best! Especially when he's trying to chat up a lady, the new Chief of the police force, who clearly doesn't not have the slightest intention to go anywhere with him. Or the Fifty Shades of Grey reference.
I loved how many different villains they brought into the battle. I thought it was a really clever way to make the film relevant by including a big range of characters, even Harley Quinn. Not only those normally linked Batman either, Doctor Who's Daleks were brought in which as British I really appreciated.
Having not watched the Batman movies or the prequel to this Lego Batman film, I didn't feel as lost as I expected, if at all. I think it's an easy watch and a nice end to a long day. I really liked the parts that delved into the past history of Batman, with his family. It's actually quite eye opening of his life choices and weirdly, in a way, remind me of the Beast in Beauty and the Beast.
I actually ended up really enjoying the film and would thoroughly recommend seeing it if you have kids but hate the boring and very repetitive normal children's film.
