Worked as intended

The Lego Movie Videogame ended on a whimper with a boss fight that both looked and sounded incomplete. It was either missing sound effects completely or someone decided that a giant robot arm being torn off should make a slight 'piff' sound. Ignorance or incompetence, take your pick.

I don't think I can let this go. This is excellent:


This is just underwhelming:


In the end the game served at least part of its purpose: I do want to see the movie now. It looks like it will be fun for the same reason the Wreck It Ralph was fun. There were in jokes and easter eggs around every corner of the game, I can only assume that the movie will be similar. There was also an odd detour into the real world, ala Toy Story (confession: I have not seen any of the Toy Story movies in their entirety) and I can't decide if it was a good twist or if it destroyed the world they were trying to create. I am certainly not going to play the game again so the movie is my only choice.

I am sure it will be on Netflix eventually.
