LEGOs are a whole thing nowadays. Well, if I'm being honest, and I liketo be honest, it's been a thing for quite a while now. There are annualconventions. There are subcultures devoted to building from a kit orbuilding freeform fun or to particular collectible sets. It's a toythat's as attractive to adults as it is to kids, and it doesn't showsigns of slowing down.

Now, when I was growing up, there weren't very many LEGO sets. Thespace one was considered a Big Deal around my house. The LEGO guy hadan astronaut helmet! And there were all kinds of pieces you could useto build a wacky spaceship, directions be darned. In fact, I don'tremember ever following directions for a LEGO set. We'd just pick uppieces and see what happened. Nowadays, though, there are thousands ofthemed sets, from Harry Potter and Star Wars to the old classics likepirate ships or the aforementioned astronauts. And with the hugesuccess of The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Batman Movie, and the LEGO NinjagoMovie, it's hard to see the product's popularly dwindling anytime soon.

This documentary touches on everything LEGO, from its old-timeybeginnings as an amusing pastime for the kiddies to the marketingbehemoth it's become. We learn how LEGOs are used in a New Jerseyschool to help autistic children communicate. We learn that people haveused LEGOs to make actual, usable, real life things like houses andcars. We learn that LEGO can even be used as an art medium. We learn,too, that the LEGO company itself evolved from being a typicalcreate-from-within corporation to one that gladly welcomes the ideasand visions of its customers, even holding contests to get new ideasfor LEGO products.

This Brickumentary is a fine film. There are plenty of human-intereststories, as one might expect, and more than one will jerk at the ol'heart strings. And, as noted above, there are also several real-worldapplications on display. When's the last time you saw a toy being usedby adults to produce practical results? Probably half past never! Sure,it's a huge commercial. There aren't many warts on display, nodisfigured minifigs. But that's okay – the universal appeal of the toymade me happy to learn more about it. If you're looking for a tell-all,keep walking. But if not… this film fits like, uh, two interlockingbricks, or something.

*** (out of 4)

Jason Bateman narrates this somewhat long-winded by highly informativedocumentary about the history of LEGOs and why everyone loves them somuch. The documentary covers how the company got started, the earlytroubles with fire and then goes into detail about how the companyevolved over the decades to become a global phenomenon. We getinterviews with fans, master builders as well as people who have adream job of creating new models.

If you're a fan of LEGOs then you'll certainly love this film as itreally does tell you everything you need to know about the company andits fans. The documentary does a very good job with the history but italso gives you a good idea of what they plan on doing in the futureincluding how they got fans involved with what they come up with . Weget to see some of the amazing large creations that superfans have comeup with as well as some of the fan-made movies.

Confession: I am documentary junkie. That said, this film was notexactly a work of art. It has the feeling of an IMAX or theme parkfilm, but don't let that stop you.

The story of Lego is reminiscent of many titans of business; big ideasgrowing out of a small shop, and so forth. What this movie is reallyabout though is summed up in this statement: "99% of the smartestpeople in the world do not work for us." Kjeld Kirk Kristiansenexplains as he recounts the near death experience of Lego in the early2000's.

Clearly Lego is *capitalizing on their success. As such, this movieshows how great of a company Lego is; and to be honest, Lego seems todeserving of all the attention it has been getting.

But this "Brickumentary" is more than that. It is also a window intothe immensely diverse world of Lego fanboys and girls, (thinkBronys,Trekkies, et.al.), and lets us in to the way Lego utilizes"crowd-sourcing", something Lego appears to have been on the cuttingedge of. It shows us how Lego has become a medium for the arts, a toolof scientific inquiry, and how little kids who started with a box ofplastic bricks were later inspired to engineering things that havehelped us in the real world.

My family loved it. Looking forward to watching it again soon.

(PS: my only complaint is that there is a split second or two ofnon-kid friendly content. Surely the filmmakers knew that theiraudience would predominantly be children. Some things are better leftunsaid or in this case, un-shown...)
