THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE (PG) Doesn’t quite snap into shape ... or build to anything, US, 101 min
No prizes for rightly assuming a third Lego movie (and the second this year) has tough acts to follow. Nevertheless, this martial arts-driven affair marks a steady drop in quality for the franchise that is hard to overlook. The story takes place in Ninjago City, where young Master Builder Lloyd (voiced by Dave Franco) and friends are living secret lives as heroic ninja warriors. Storytelling quite bland here compared to the sharp comic writing of the first two instalments. Average.
