THE LEGO MOVIE is an animated children's film about an ordinary construction worker who must join forces with the Lego Master Builders to save his world from the evil plans of President Business. It is rated U for mild fantasy violence and very mild language.

There are lots of fight sequences in which the good characters take on various baddies, including Lego robots and Lego skeletons. The Lego figures kick and punch at each other, while leaping around in fantastical style. Very few of the blows are clearly seen to land and all the action involves toy figures rather than humans. Occasionally the heads of the Lego figures pop off during fights, and one character's head is knocked off by a flying coin but continues to talk to his friends. Other sequences have science fiction space ships and robots shooting laser beams at others, causing explosions and crashes. No one is seen to get hurt and the fact that all the fighting involves animated toy figures means that the fantasy nature of the violence is very clear.

There is some very mild bad language, with uses of 'butt', 'bum', 'darn' and 'heck'.

U stands for Universal, which means that we think the film is suitable for audiences aged four or older.
