I saw "The Lego Ninjago Movie", starring the voices of Jackie Chan-The Karate Kid_2010, the Rush Hour movies; Dave Franco-The Now You See Me movies, the Neighbors movies; Olivia Munn-Office Christmas Party, Magic Mike and Justin Theroux-The Girl On the Train, Miami Vice_2006. This is another Lego movie but it's just not quite as good as either The Lego Movie or The Lego Batman Movie-my favorite of the three. This one has it's moments but overall, it's just not as funny. Jackie bookends the movie with real-life scenes. He plays a shop keeper that is telling the story of Ninjago to a little boy. FYI: Ninjago is the name of the island everyone lives on. Jackie also voices a character in the story, Master Wu, who is the teacher to the Power Rangers......Oopps, sorry. They are ninjas that dress in different color outfits and use robotic looking creatures to fight the evil warlord invading their island, so, as you can see, it's easy to get them mixed up with the Power Rangers. Dave is the green ninja and leader of the group, who also just happens to be the son of the aforementioned evil warlord, Justin. Olivia voices Dave's mother. As you can probably guess, Dave has daddy issues. It's not a bad movie- I'm sure the little ones will enjoy it-but it could have been better. It seemed like the writers didn't give their best efforts. As the end credits start, there are some bloopers with the live-action scenes of Jackie Chan but there is nothing at the very end. It's rated "PG" for some mild action and rude humor and has a running time of 1 hour & 41 minutes. I don't know if I would buy it on DVD but it would be a good rental.
