Review of LEGO: The Adventures of Clutch Powers on DVD4:23 PM
3 boys in the house = a lot of LEGOS... everywhere. I step on them in the shower, lay on them in my bed, and pretty much spend a good portion of my day picking them up from every floor in the house. I don't complain, however, because I love LEGOS. They help my boys be creative with their play, and there's not much they would rather do on cold days in the house.
Universal Home Entertainment recently released the first LEGO full-length feature film for kids, The Adventures of Clutch Powers, and my skeptical Mom mind wondered if it would have any entertainment value. I couldn't have been more (pleasantly) surprised. I knew right away that this film had a lot of excitement -- (my boys kept saying "Mom! Listen to the music! It's like a grown-up movie, but it's OK for kids!") They loved the action sequences, the dialogue, and the Indiana-Jones type screenplay. It was the type of animated fun that can keep little boys engaged, but at the same time didn't drive me bonkers.
The best part of the film was that it continued off screen. The boys kept building things that they saw in the movie with their LEGOS, and even with some of their off-brand building sets. They liked to draw pictures about the movie, and I could tell that it really sparked their imaginations. If this is the first of many movies to come, I'm really happy to see what's next!
