MPOV: The Lego Movie

The wizard Vitruvius attempts to protect a superweapon called the "Kragle" from the evil Lord Business. He fails, but prophesies that a person called "the Special" will find the Piece of Resistance capable of stopping the Kragle.

Eight and a half years later, an ordinary construction worker named Emmet Brickowski comes across a woman named Wyldstyle searching for something in the construction site. When he investigates, he falls into a hole and finds the Piece of Resistance (revealed to be a Krazy Glue cap). Compelled to touch it, Emmet experiences vivid visions and passes out. He awakens in the custody of Bad Cop, Lord Business' lieutenant, with the Piece of Resistance attached to his back. There, Emmet learns of Business' plans to freeze the world with the Kragle (revealed to be a tube of Krazy Glue with the label partially rubbed out) at "Taco Tuesday". Wyldstyle rescues Emmet and takes him to the Old West, another "world". She explains that the every "world" used to be connected with people from different "worlds" helping each other in everyday activities. However Lord Business abhors the thought, and constructs walls to separate all the "worlds".

In the "Old West", Wyldstyle introduces Emmet to meet Vitruvius. She explains that she and the wizard are Master Builders, gifted people capable of building anything they need without instruction manuals. She further explains that due to Business' disapproval of such anarchic creativity, Master Builders are actively hunted down by Business, led by Bad Cop. Although disappointed to find that Emmet displays no trait possessed by Master Builders, Wyldstyle and Vitruvius are convinced of his potential when he recalls visions of a humanoid deity called "the Man Upstairs", the person who is said to be the creator of all the "worlds".

It was funny, sad, meaningful, boring... overall okay lah! The moral of the story is teamwork with every single person is uniquely creative in their own way. Yeah... I get that. Watching those Legos come to life was cool but it somehow lacks a certain zest. The whole movie was like a roller-coaster ride... at times it was exciting and at times it was dull. Like I mentioned earlier... overall okay lah!
