I was not expecting to enjoy this movie as much as I did. I thought it was even funnier than The Lego Movie! The goofiness of the film such as the “beep-bo-beeps of the button pressing or the “pew-pews” of the blaster firing and the one-liners in this film are what really killed me.
“I’m a loser at home and at work”
“You’re 110% expendable.”
“Let me just go out and say it, I hate you.”
The first 15 minutes or so of the movie with the opening monolog and fight scene were absolutely hilarious! I will admit that the movie certainly drags a bit in parts with it being a children’s film with many of the jokes being catered towards the youngins and with the majority of them being centered around the fact that Batman is a loner and needs the Joker to preserve his sanity and in order to save himself he’d need to make friends to get over his fear of losing another loved one. It was actually a pretty deep movie all things considered, but I would’ve preferred if the entire film was just as chaotic, dumb, and fun as the first 15 minutes.
What I did love however were the big baddies that the Joker assembled from the Void. King Kong! Godzilla! The Wicked Witch of the West! Medusa! Lord Voldemort yelling Windgardium Leviosa made me piss myself from laughing. But it was the true Dark Lord that had me fangirling and in hysterics: Sauron! Hookah hookah! Best cameo ever!
But the film has one MAJOR plot hole, the Talking Block of the Void requested Batman to return ALL of the prisoners. They forgot our Dark Lord in the bottom of the Ocean. RIP Sauron and may you rise again from the ashes.
A fun movie to watch with the family. Or if you’re a Batman fanatic or just want to watch a film that parodies everything you don’t like about him, you’ll find enjoyment in this.
