Must see smart fun for all ages!

Based on the Lego line of construction toys, the film tells the story of Emmet (Chris Pratt), an ordinary Lego minifigure prophesied to save the universe from the tyrannical Lord Business (Will Ferrell).

I love animated films but this one is something quite different. It may take some time to get used to its visuals but don't worry, you do! Great attention to detail, dynamic, refreshing, smart humor, encouraging, entertaining and heartwarming message are the main reasons why I liked this movie so much! Still I have my doubts. It's a feature-length toy commercial to be honest. But a good one. There are some unnecessary cliches and is at times a bit messy. However, definitely 2014 must see! 4/5
