Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this direct-to-DVD release is another entry in the LEGO series of action-packed, animated tales designed to showcase robotic toys and superhero figures for young consumers. There are many battles scenes (some of which feel a lot like video game sequences) with villains exhibiting various built-in weapons: sharp teeth, fangs, claws, and sabers. The Heroes fight their enemies in lengthy hand-to-hand combat scenes which serve the usual "evil mastermind wants to take over the world" plot. Professor Aldous Witch has glowing red eyes and a dastardly cackle. There's an attempt to provide some positive lessons about teamwork and responsibility along with the action.
- Sexual Content
- Not applicable.
- Cartoon action from start to finish. Robotic characters display various powers and built-in weaponry, including fangs, claws, and spikes. The villains, other than the evil professor who's the mastermind of the plot, are in the form of animals: dogs, birds, and a particularly stubborn and nasty scorpion. All engage the Heroes in hand-to-hand combat. Sparks fly; robots are zapped, chased, fall, and come back for more.

- Amidst the battles and jeopardy are clearly stated messages: A hero's duty is to help those in need. While a little competition is healthy, true leadership calls for teamwork.
