Batman (Will Arnett) is loving his life, but there's something missing. Yep, the Joker (Zach Galifianakis) is up to his usual tricks, but will his new 'son' Dick/Robin (Michael Cera) and a blossoming romance with Barbara/Batgirl (Rosario Dawson) fill the big batwing-shaped hole in his life?
Following Batman stealing the show in 2014's The Lego Movie, The Lego Batman Movie seemed the next obvious step, and it worked... sort of. It's fun and light with enough subtext and double entendres to appeal to the accompanying adults, and the story (not that there's a whole lot to it) will keep the kids from wriggling too much for an hour and half. Listen out for appearances by Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Seth Green, Billy Dee Williams, Channing Tatum and many more in a film that's big on laughs and charm. The animation is crisp though the sound was a little stiff and needed some more ambient noise do give it some soul. Good school holiday outings for the little ones.
