The LEGO Batman Movie: 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Review








*4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray 3D copies of this title sent by Warner Bros. for review*

The Movie:

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble—LEGO Batman—stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham City, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

This is definitely one of those films that if you really liked The LEGO Movie then there’s not doubt that you’ll enjoy this film as well. The same type of humor is present and it’s easily enjoyable for the masses but the one thing that I will say is that it also pleases the major fans of the character. It really does cover a vast amount of Batman lore and crack certain jokes that only fans will understand but it does it without alienating the kids or casual moviegoers in the audience. The movie was fun, full of action and made fun of itself in the best possible ways all while being able to entertain kids and adults alike. It’s not often that animated movies are able to check off all the boxes like that anymore so it definitely had my attention. My only complaint with it is that it was a bit too long. If they were able to trim down around 15 to 20 minutes or so I think that it would’ve made it a bit tighter and not feel like it was dragging a tad. Other than that one detail I thought the movie was fantastic and all voice actors involved were phenomenal. Each of them brought their own take to classic characters and they all killed it. Just like The LEGO Movie you won’t want to miss it! 8/10

4K Presentation:

Animated films are always amazing looking in 4K so obviously I couldn’t wait to see this movie in this format. The film looks so very crisp and the clarity is pretty impressive even to the point where you can see scuffs and scratches on LEGO bricks like you normally would in real life. The saturation is always a big thing to look for in this new format and I do have to say that it was handled extremely well. The darker scenes (which there are many) look a bit brighter and a lot easier to distinguish certain things within the frame. This is a really great upgrade to an already great movie.

3D Presentation:

There are certain films out there that are made for the 3D format and some that get converted. Sometimes the conversion process doesn’t exactly turn out very well and you get a movie that becomes very disappointing. In this case the conversion process worked out wonderfully and it legitimately looked like LEGO bricks were coming at me. The depth between the foreground and background was nicely done and it felt just as good as seeing it in theaters. Even overviews of the Batcave and Gotham City looked just as epic in 3D as it would in any other Batman movie so I think I can consider the this conversion a win.

Special Features:

Animated Shorts – There are 4 shorts here that was equally as good and funny as the main feature.

The Master: A LEGO Ninjago Short – I’m not a huge Ninjago fan but this short was done really well.

Deleted Scenes – There are a few scenes here and much like any other deleted scenes in animated films they didn’t get past the storyboard phase. It is interesting to check out none the less.

Featurettes – 6 different features here that look at everything from the making of the film, the voice cast and even a Wayne Manor tour by Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The LEGO Batman Movie is available NOW on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment
