Movie Review

“Although we’re both known for more ‘serious’ films,” says Daniel Junge and Kief Davidson in a statement for the documentary, A Lego Brickumentary, [this movie] might be the most difficult film we’ve ever made.” And for those who think that this is just a big infomercial for the toy brand, you would be wrong. “Once [Lego] were sold on the approach, they were pretty hands off,” says Davidson. “We got to make the film we wanted to make while being granted all of the access we needed.” Which is as it should be when making a documentary – having the freedom to spread out all of the good, the bad and the ugly on the table. Then again, trying to dig up any dirt on Lego is a lost cause.  
At first, the film appears to have been made for young children as a yellow-toned Lego mini-figure, (voiced by Jason Bateman), pops on the scene and explains the wonders of the building block toy. However, the film quickly shifts focus from children to adults. Dave and Stacy Sterling are just two of those adults who build for fun and their “play room” would make most kids jealous.
