Lego Ninjago Movie

Lego Ninjago MovieThe Lego Ninjago Movie, The Masters Of Spinjitzu originally aired on the Cartoon Network in early 2011.

It served as an introduction to the new Lego theme, Ninjago and the first sets for this theme came out around the same time.

Apart from providing a great backstory and context to the Lego sets the movie was funny, exciting and very entertaining.

Rated PG for some Fantasy Violence, Crude Humor and some scary and disturbing images the film is a little scary for younger viewers. Overall the “bad” guys, despite being skeletons, are humorous – much like the battle droids of Star Wars The Clone Wars but parents might want to watch the show with their children to decide if it is appropriate.

Lego Ninjago Movie Plot (Spoilers!)

LEGO Ninjago Movie CharactersThe movie begins with a teenage blacksmith named Kai who lives with his sister Nya. Kai works as a blacksmith to sell them as armor. The Skeleton Army comes and prepares to attack the Japanese village. The leader is Samukai and the two generals are Kruncha and General Nuckal (who fight every time in the movie). They attack the city. Kai then gets his armor and fights Samukai, but Samukai gets his bone daggers and throws them at a water tower, causing it to nearly fall on Kai. A ninja master named Sensei Wu saves him using Spinjitzu, which Kai mistakenly calls “twistitsu” when he is mad at Sensei.

Samukai and his army leave with Nya captured by them. Sensei then tells Kai if he wants to save his sister he needs to learn Spinjitzu to defeat the army. Sensei also tells him the story of Lord Garmadon, his brother, who is responsible for the army formation. Kai then trains in the dojo and Sensei brings his other ninja students(Jay, Cole, and Zane) to work with Kai (they accidentally attack Kai when they first meet). They all head towards the earth land, get Cole’s scythe, and leave, narrowly escaping the Earth Dragon.

Lego Ninjago Movie CNThey all go towards the ice mountain and get Zane’s shurikens. Later they head towards the lightning hill and get Jay’s nunchucks. Then they rest in a camping spot and sleep. Kai goes to the Fire Temple and sees that Lord Garmadon has disguised himself as his sister. Nya is tied up over a lava river and not only does Kai save her, he also obtains the Sword of Fire. Sensei comes and saves the two from Garmadon. Then back at the camp Jay, Cole, and Zane get tied up by Samukai, and the skeleton army head towards the underworld. Jay manages to steal a sword from one of the skeletons, and he cuts him, Cole, and Zane out of the rope.

In the temple, Sensei makes a sacrifice to go down into the underworld. Kai and Nya befriend the Fire Dragon and save the other ninjas. They get other dragons for each and Nya goes back home with her dragon. Cole, who is terrified of dragons, is tied to the Earth Dragon to prevent him from not coming. The rest head towards the underworld and meet with the army. All together they use Spinjitzu to create the Tornado of Creation and defeat the Skeleton Army.

Sensei then fights the leader, Samukai, who has the other weapons, with the Sword of Fire. Samukai defeats Sensei and gets the sword, yet explodes and dies since he can’t handle all the power of the golden weapons at once (even Lord Garmadon can’t contain the weapons power). A portal is made and Lord Garmadon gets in, but tells the others that he will return one day. Two days later Kai and the others return to the village, and everyone is waiting. Sensei goes to his temple and Kai reunites with Nya. Then the ninjas get ready for a new adventure.
