Review: Lego Adventures of Clutch Powers (DVD)

So how did you kick off March Break at your house? Us? With a Saturday afternoon movie of course. Earlier in the week we were watching a movie we rented from the library when we spotted the trailer for Lego: The Adventures of Clutch Powers; a full-length feature film based on Lego characters. My son starred wide-eyed in awe at the movie trailer. So imagine his surprise when a few days later someone sent us a copy of that very movie! [insert image of a 5-year-old doing a bit of a happy dance].

With my son’s Lego fixation (we even established a Lego building area in his room), it’s no surprise he wanted to watch this movie. So we watched it. And we watched it again. And again. In one day Lego: The Adventure of Clutch Powers has been watched four times! And if I allowed it, my son would keep watching it.

And actually I don’t really blame him. The picture quality is actually quite good, better than I was expecting, but I guess when you have the Lego name attached to it you have to make it good. The story is fun:

Meet Clutch Powers, the best builder and explorer in the LEGO® universe as he heads off on his most dangerous mission yet. Join Clutch and his team of LEGO® experts as their adventure leads them from LEGO® City to the Space Police prison planet to the medieval world of Ashlar where they must help the rightful heir to the King’s throne find the courage to regain the kingdom from the evil wizard Mallock the Malign.

Their brick-building skills will be put to the ultimate test as they face off against Mallock’s skeleton army. Get ready for an action-packed adventure like nothing you have ever seen before, The Adventures of Clutch Powers! (pulled from the official Lego Clutch Powers website)

We’re big fans of the Wii Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman games and Lego: Adventures of Clutch Powers has the same sort of feel. My son loved seeing some of his favourite Lego sets come to life and screen and his favourite part was when the character’s built things on the spot. The adventure contained the same fun humour in the Lego Wii game vignettes. Because the movie is based on the Lego characters, we didn’t need to worry about scary scenes but it was still a great adventure story.

If you have a Lego fan in your house, Lego: Adventures of Clutch Powers might be a great addition to your home video library. Wonder what we’ll be watching on our road trip later this week?
