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

I rented, and now I will buy it. I've watched it more than 5 times during my rental period and can't seem to get enough of the "Let's Get Nut's" Batman song in the beginning of the movie.
As for whether or not it's for kids, I'll leave these comments as this is coming from a 37 year old:
I didn't think it was any more or less violent than Despicable Me or Monsters University. However, my young ones didn't understand many references made in the movie despite finding it enjoyable. Specifically, there are many references (hilarious ones or hilariously spun) that are either before many 10 year old's time, are from movies that were not for children, or are not part of US pop culture. For example, "You wanna get nuts?! Let's get nuts!" is from the 1989 Batman movie (I was 9 when that movie came out...and yes I watched it and didn't understand it until I watched it again as an adult). The Eye of Sauron is from Lord of the Rings, a PG-13 movie. Or the Daleks from Dr. Who (NIIIIIICE!!), which are awesome but part of British pop culture. ELIMINATE! ELIMINATE! ELIMINATE! ...yes, I am a closet Whovian.
I'm sure the adults appreciate the homage to the 1960's Batman (rest in peace Adam West) as represented by Alfred's batsuit and the underlying theme song. Also the "Pow!" and other visual fight sounds were enjoyable.
The humor was on point! I loved the sarcasm and indirectly making fun of...Batman.
"'Puter! Overcompensate!" "What is the password?" "Ironman sucks!"
I'm not always into these types of movies, but I thought it was honestly brilliant. Brilliantly written and just a bowl of laughs!
The movie is not perfect, but I cannot think of better movies that are both exciting for kids and entertaining for parents as the Lego series.
However, Batman gets it right. Only during a couple fight scenes was there too much going on ask at once.
The story, the action, and the humor were totally on point for a great Batman flick.
A must watch
