The Lego Batman Movie is directed by Chris Mckay, who is best known for the television series Robot Chicken.
This super satirical story spotlights the Dark Knight's solitary lifestyle, the Joker's desire for his arch-foe's respect, and Dick Grayson's necessity for family. This all culminates into a surprisingly sentimental flick.
TLBM features the vocal talents of several celebrity personalities. This includes but is not limited to Will Arnett as the narcissistic vigilante, Michael Cera as Dick, Bruce's accidental acquisition and ally, Zack Galifianakis as the lovelorn lunatic, the Joker, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred, the careful caregiver, and Rosario Dawson as Barbara, the commissioner's tenacious child. The voice acting is solid across the board. Galafianakis performs an impressive Joker. Probably my favorite of the bunch. He's no Hamill, Ledger or Nicholson, but he's definitely up there.
