This movie was nothing but dope. As dope as The Lego Movie.
A LEGO Brickumentary explores what seems to be by the documentarystandards a history of the invention of Lego, but mostly it goesthrough how Lego has changed lives since it's invention.
It's a geek culture that I am aware of but sadly I'm not fully a partof, despite my admiration to the product. The filmmakers due an amazingjob of impressing me with how far beyond the bricks have come frombeing just a toy.
It's fitting that the documentary spends a lot of time unavailing alife size X-wing fighter from the movie Star Wars, another product thatsparked the same type of geek culture.
But the movie documents how Legos are more awesome than the Star Warsmovies (except Star Wars geeks have better nicknames). The documentaryshowcases how Kids teens and Adults use Legos literally as a tool forthe imagination, similar to a pen and a pad (and this is what I lovemost about the toys). It also shows the growing cult phenomenon thatgoes outside of the Lego company with people who are able to make aliving off of Legos without the company's permission and how Legoencourages this, not something you expect from the #2 biggest toycompany in the world.
I feel like Lego does not get enough credit that it deserves, I'mhoping this doc changes that. It has inspired me to pick up the Legos Ihave.

This movie was nothing but dope. As dope as The Lego Movie.
I grew up in Belgium, and as a young kid in the 1960s, LEGO was one ofmy primary toys. I must've spent hundreds of hours playing and buildingLEGO stuff. Then I passed on the love for LEGO to my young son here inthe US 30 years later. When I found out that, if not parallel with,then certainly as a result of the smashing success of the (CGI, notbrick-made) "Lego Movie", a documentary was being made about the LEGOphenomenon, I couldn't wait to see it.
"A LEGO Brickumentary" (2014 release from Denmark and the US; 93 min.)opens with seeing 3 LEGO minifigs on a space ship, and the narrator(Jason Bateman) telling us he'll explain later what that is about. Soonafter, we get a LEGO 101 on the company's roots and history. But it'snot too long before we finally get what we all came to see this for:bigger, better, ever more imaginative if not out-right exotic LEGOcreations. Along the way, we get the LEGO celebrity fans (Ed Sheeransinging his hit single "Lego House", NBA player Dwight Howard, etc.).Co-directors Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge decide to keep things verylight-hearted. There is only the slightest critical comment about LEGO,and even there, it's turned into a plus for LEGO (how the companyturned things around financially by listening better to its customers).The best part of the movie comes in the second half, when theco-directors look at the possible therapeutic effects of playing withLEGO, and also where a Danish university math professor examineswhether he can come up with a formula for finding how many differentpositions just 6 or 7 LEGO bricks can be used/interlocked.
In the end this film is nothing more than an unabashed love letter toLEGO. It's pleasant (to see the LEGO creations) but it's also devoid ofany critical tone, and hence there is also no strong narrative thatpulls you in, reason that I rate this 6 stars. The movie opened justthis weekend at my local art-house theater here in Cincinnati. Theearly evening screening where I saw this at was not particularly wellattended, which really surprised me. Given the strong brand that LEGOis and the very positive response to The LEGO Movie, I would'veexpected more people for that on its opening weekend. If you are a LEGOfan, you should definitely check this out, but you should also keepyour expectations modest. If you are not into LEGO, I'd suggest youcheck out something else to see.
'A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
A documentary film, on the beloved construction toy 'Lego'. It wasdirected by Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge; the duo also wrote themovie, along with Davis Coombe (all three filmmakers have experiencewith multiple other documentary flicks). Actor Jason Bateman narratesthe film. I found the movie to be just a little too boring, anduninteresting; Lego fanatics will probably love it though.
Lego is a plastic construction toy; that began in Denmark, in 1949.Since then it's became one of the most popular toys around the world.The juggernaut has spawned multiple cartoons, video games, movies andsix amusement parks as well. This documentary examines it's history,over the last 66 years; and why so many people have became so obsessedwith it.
The film has plenty of great, informative, info (on the subject), Iguess. It's just not told in a very entertaining way; and if you're nota huge fan of Lego, it's not that interesting either. I have multiplebrothers, and friends, that really love the toy though (a lot); andthey'd probably really enjoy this film. Not many others will though.Even Jason Bateman narrating, as the voice of a Lego figurine, couldn'tsave it for me; and I love Jason Bateman. I love 'THE LEGO MOVIE'though!
