So What’s the Movie About?
In the battle for NINJAGO® City, Lloyd (Dave Franco), high school student by day and Green Ninja by night, gets thrown into the ultimate adventure with his secret ninja warrior friends! Led by the wise and wisecracking Master Wu (Jackie Chan), they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon (Justin Theroux), The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. On their courageous journey, they learn to band together to unleash their inner power in an epic showdown to save the city.
Olivia Munn plays Koko, the single mom to Lloyd. She was once a warrior known as the Lady Iron Dragon. This gets revealed later on and then you find out how she met Garmadon and creates the dynamic between the Green Ninja and Garmadon. Garmadon and Master Wu are brothers, making Koko, Master Wu’s Ex sister in law.
Things we liked about the movie
My son has read the books and followed along the story of Ninjago. It can be daunting at times to keep up with the characters but adults can really get into the story line. There is a lot of dialogue that will go over kid’s heads and lots of comedic satire and sarcasm. My sister enjoyed that part of it. Kids will love the characters and laugh at some of the antics. The lead bad guy, Garmadon is so bad but at the same time flawed that you are constantly hoping he will change his ways to get to know his son.
You can purchase this movie online at Walmart (LEGO Ninjago Movie at Walmart) or other retailers
