Angsty teenager Lloyd Garmadon is not a popular figure in the city of Ninjago due to his absent father Lord Garmadon, who regularly attemps to destroy the place. If only the citizens knew that Lloyd is a key member of the special ninja team who protect the city. Lego's big screen franchise stumbles onwards with diminishing results. The Lego Movie was a breath of fresh air, The Lego Batman Movie was beginning to feel stale, and the third one, based on the Lego Ninjago toy line, has run out of ideas. The story offers no surprises, the fast-paced comedy style has worn out its welcome, and Lord Garmadon feels like Batman v2.0.
