Go Behind The Voices Of 'The LEGO Batman Movie'

He's selfish, self-centered, and short-tempered. He refutes his shortcomings, blames others for his faults and takes credit where it's not owing.

The only guy that fits the description: No one else but the Batman, on the other hand, the brilliant Will Arnett voiced it in "The LEGO Batman Movie." Parents should volunteer to take their children to this film -it's funnier than the kids do. There are situations to just about all portrayals of the Caped Crusader over the years, and references to the references, because if you can't be knowing about your self-referential nods, what's the point?

Which is a way of saying the film, directed by Chris McKay, is poised and smart? It knows what the spectators want before it even knows it wants it.

"The LEGO Batman Movie" isn't quite up to that big screen standards, but there's no shame in that. You can only be original sometimes, after all. But in terms of jokes per minute that land, it's at least the equal of its ancestor.

Batman is up to his typical tricks at the beginning of the film, uncomfortable flawed scheme by the Joker (Zach Galifianakis). That's bad enough for the Joker: Batman, even in victory, refuses to admit that the Joker as his earnest enemy. In fact, the story claims, that the Joker means nothing to Batman at all.

In the meantime, Commissioner Gordon is retiring, and his daughter, Barbara (Rosario Dawson), will take over. She pays Batman a few indirect compliments in a speech but tensions say that it's time to move on. After all, even though he frequently has saved the city, he's never really seized any of the bad guys. And wouldn't deterrence and smart policing be a better crime prevention than a mysterious vigilante?

A head-to-head confrontation is brewing, as you would imagine, and the action arrangements are nicely done. But the jokes, which come a mile, are hilarious. Look for digs at, among many others, "Suicide Squad," Marvel movies, other Batman movies and, most especially, the campy 1960s television series starring Adam West. Some of the ridiculous villains from that version show up in small roles.What a delicacy "The LEGO Batman Movie" is. As they say in the first film, everything is breathtaking.
