Film of the day: The Lego Ninjago Movie

Lego Ninjago Movie

This is the third animated romp based on those little Danish bricks and again it’s a winner, with the focus this time on the faraway city of Ninjago and the colourful team of teenage ninja warriors – led by Dave Franco’s Lloyd/Green Ninja – sworn to protect it.

Usually that means battling volcano-dwelling ne’er-do-well and Lloyd’s estranged dad Lord Garmadon (the excellent Justin Theroux), but when an even greater threat emerges an uneasy alliance must be formed.

Keeping up the gag rate are Jackie Chan’s Master Wu, more wise-cracking than wise, plus the likes of Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) and The Office/Silicon Valley scene-stealer Zach Woods.
