“The first thing to say about “The Lego Batman Movie” is that it’s kicky, bedazzling, and super-fun. The second thing to say about it is that, like “The Lego Movie” (2014), it’s a kiddie flick that’s been made in a sophisticated spirit of lightning-fast, brain-bursting paradox. These movies use digital animation to create the illusion that they’re set in a universe of plastic Lego bricks, yet they have such a kaleidoscopic, anything-goes flow that they trump the imagination of just about any animated feature you could name. The characters are Lego minifigures with pegs for heads and crudely etched faces that barely move, yet they have more personality than a great many human actors. Most delicious of all: The films come on like tot-friendly parodies of the adult world, yet there’s a dizzying depth to their satirical observations that grows right out of the spectacularly fake settings, which are hypnotic to look at but have the effect of putting quotation marks around…everything.”
