Synopsis 4 stars out of 5 -- [T]he chief target is the Dark Knight himself, hilariously voiced by Will Arnett as a grumpy churl and preening egotist that helmer Chris McKay delights in undercutting at every opportunity.4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his gag-packed, knockabout action-adventure has a lot of fun with the character....It is relentlessly, consistently funny...[I]t’s kicky, bedazzling, and super-fun. The second thing to say about it is that, like THE LEGO MOVIE, it’s a kiddie flick that’s been made in a sophisticated spirit of lightning-fast, brain-bursting paradox.[The filmmakers] find no shortage of satirical targets, taking sly aim at everything from SUICIDE SQUAD to Donald Trump’s taxes....Performance-wise, Arnett certainly gives it his disaffected all...Director Chris McKay and his six-man writing team also throw in a lot of references to Batman lore. -- Grade: B[I]t draws upon decades of Bat lore for its inside jokes and cultural references that zip by faster than any souped-up Bat vehicle.[A]n impish, big-hearted parody that also happens to be the best Batman movie since THE DARK KNIGHT...[T]he star of the show in every sense is Will Arnett, reprising his entertainingly growly Dark Knight from the previous movie....Arnett’s voice work is pure Christian Bale parody, of course...[P]retty irresistible. It’s silly without being truly strange or crossing over into absurdity...[I]t’s a wry piece of meta-commentary that deconstructs everyone’s favorite moody hero using the anarchic animated style of the Lego world.4 stars out of 5 -- It’s a film dense with jokes, the writers riffing successfully on both this sullen and arrogant iteration of Batman and the character’s rich and varied history.3 stars out of 4 -- Will Arnett may have found the role of his career voicing the growly Dark Knight as a delusional, ego-centric freak willing and eager to mine laughs out of his own psychosis....THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE rises on its own goofball spirits.THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE looks and feels like it could only have been put together by a roomful of mad geniuses, moving in a ballet of well-choreographed creativity: It’s simultaneously epic and humble.Batman (voice of Will Arnett) defends Gotham City from criminals and supervillains while bonding with a young orphan (Michael Cera) he accidentally adopted -- who, of course, eventually becomes his sidekick Robin. This spin-off of THE LEGO MOVIE also features the voices of Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Zach Galifianakis as the Joker, and Ralph Fiennes as Batman's loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth. Directed by Chris McKay (ROBOT CHICKEN).[T]he family-friendly animated superhero comedy maniacally blisters the screen with loving homages to past Bat-flicks, wacky baddies, wickedly clever references and one very unsubtle message: Don’t be a jerk, be a pal.
