It did have quite a few really good jokes, and it started very strong. However, I feel like the last third of the film just dragged, partly from having too many predictable elements and fewer jokes.
When characters such as
Sauron and Voldemort first popped up, I had a chuckle, it was cool to see them so unexpectedly. On the other hand, they weren't very funny or cleverly used, so they felt more like a cheap cameo instead of a parody. With the rich villains commonly seen in Batman movies, it was a weird choice to use villains from other blockbusters instead of fan-favorites like Scarecrow, Penguin, Catwoman, etc. This being a Batman movie, I would have loved to see more of those guys but they barely had a line.
On the plus side, I never really cared for Robin or Alfred, but they were surprisingly funny in this.
If you liked The Lego Movie this won't disappoint.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
