Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is essentially a long commercial for Lego's Hero Factory product line. All of the characters and vehicles that appear are for sale. Plus, there's lots oof over-the-top fighting, including myriad weapons (bombs, lasers, guns, acid) and lots of punching and peril. And in the end, the characters, while touting messages of teamwork, don't rise above the violence and commercialism that infiltrate every part of this DVD.
Lots of battle scenes, though all characters are robots. Weapons of all conceivable shapes and sizes -- bombs, lasers, guns, acid -- plus lots of punching and pounding. Perilous situations like girders falling on robots, falls from high buildings, and spaceship crashes.
Threatening language: "idiot," "loser," etc.
The idea of teamwork is touted, but the frequent unprovoked violence works against any positive take-aways.
All of the characters are Lego action figures that are for sale. Accessories like vehicles and space stations also for sale. Kids will know the products by name at the end of the movie.
