In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The Lego Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble- LEGO Batman- stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham City, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
The LEGO Batman Movie is presented in a HEVC/H.2.65 1080p/2160 (4K) transfer with excellent picture quality and sharp vivid colors, complements of high dynamic range. Right from the start you are presented with very lush bright colors with very sharp details, which is consistent throughout its 104 minute runtime. This film looks absolutely beautiful, the depth of color and brightness with very consistent crushed blacks gives this film an authentic feeling of what a film should look like and what you expect from an LEGO film. There are so many scenes with explosion, fire, dim lighting and bright colors that make the HDR truly impressionable to the naked eye. The mixture of different colors are meshed in well with the attention of detail to every object and facial expression presented, leaves you drooling for more. I’ve had no issues with over saturation with minimal if not all inconsistency in contrast levels. Overall a well presented film that had my jaw dropped and my eyes glued to the screen the entire screening of this film. Awesome, awesome job.
Presented in a DTS-HD/Dolby Atmos-TrueHD 5.1 Master, this film sounds phenomenal and will blow your socks off with the correct audio home theater set up. Clear and crisp with consistent audio dialogue levels, I was never phased or distracted with manual adjusting the audio with my remote. The audio and score of this film was a dazzling experience, which complemented the PQ of this film in fashion. The Dolby Atmos-TrueHD 5.1 sounds beautiful, clean and boisterous with the amount of explosions and sound effects this film presents. There are so many things going on in this film and with the audio levels consistent and center positioning of sound, made this climatic experience well worth the viewing.

My overall experience of this film was filled with fun and laughter. I always have a fun experience with LEGO films and given the awesome presentation of this film, just gave me a theater-like experience that will entice me to revisit this film many more times in the future. This film is more than just a typical action film, its also a more deeper film that taps into the lineage of being a hero and celebrity, but also having a heart and compassion for those that are close to you and never take anyone for granted. This film was presented well in all facets and any fan of Batman or LEGO will be pleasantly surprised after viewing this film. One for the ages for sure.
