Well I haven't seen it yet, I'm just saying the reviews seem extremely high. For something with a 98% makes it seem like it's a flawless masterpiece of a film, which I'm sure it's not.

In terms of kid-centered movies that would mean it's on par with the best Disney films, and I doubt that.

I saw one playing on Cartoon Network last night, it was pretty awful, and I'm not used to any other Lego Batman voice besides Will Arnett.

Saw it today with my wife and son. It had me laughing in the first few minutes. Loved it's constant swipes at the entire Batman franchise.

Saw it last night, I'm not even a huge a Batman fan but it was both a great Lego/comedy movie and a great Batman movie. So many references to just about every single incarnation of Batman, it was awesome. Can't wait to see it again.

I saw the film and I enjoyed every second of it. It was such a great feel-good family-friendly animated movie. I honestly can't imagine anyone other than Will Arnett voicing Batman in this franchise. Michael Cera was a solid Robin and I'm really glad that Barbara Bordon/Batgirl got to shine in this film. It was also refreshing to see Ralph Finnes voice such a good guy after playing numerous villains. I know that he's now M in the Bond series, but this was great too. The references to the past films and the classic TV show were also some of the big highlights for me. I hope to see it again in the next couple weeks.

I saw it with my boyfriend a few weeks ago and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was a bit like the Lego movie in how it followed a basically cliche story ("Aloof Everyman is the Chosen One™" "Closed-off Tough Guy™ learns he needs friends to be happy"), but it was still pretty good. No sign on if it's in continuity with the Lego Movie, anyway. Since there didn't seem to be anything about his breakup with WyldSide.

But anything that has the Joker getting Sauron, Voldemort, and Daleks ("British Robots") to work for him is pretty clever. Safe to say that outside the Lego Universe, that would probably go pretty badly for him . Still a little disappointed that they didn't have Krang and/or Shredder on his side. That would have been incredibly fun.

It is. Towards the beginning where the news reporter is talking about the end of the world and how Joker's bomb will make everyone fall into the abyss or whatever it was called, they show footage from The Lego Movie of Emmet falling down the portal thing (when he has the battery strapped to his back) into the real world.

Also, in that same scene I believe, they're showing how Gotham City is only held up by what looks like a big table. This is, what I'm assuming, a reference to how the entire Lego display in The Lego Movie is built on a big table as well.

I went back to see it on Monday, but this time in 3D. It looked really cool. I think probably laughed even more this time around. The voice-cast really did give top-notch performances. My only complaint was that at the beginning of the film some idiot forgot to turn off his phone and it was loud. This really could've been the same person who had their phone on during the first time I saw Furious 7 because it was at the same theater.
