QUICK TAKE:
Animated Action: An egotistical warlord repeatedly attacks Ninjago City, aiming to take it over and impose his rule, but is opposed at all turns by his good-hearted ninja son who he abandoned years earlier.
PLOT:
The evil warlord Garmadon (voice of JUSTIN THEROUX) has spent the better part of his adult life periodically attacking Ninjago City and trying to take it over. But he has been thwarted at each and every turn by the good-hearted Green Ninja (voice of DAVE FRANCO) and his team of fellow ninjas. On the team are high-school classmates Kai (voice of MICHAEL PENA), a.k.a. the Fire Ninja; Nya (voice of ABBI JACOBSON), a.k.a. the Water Ninja; Zane (voice of ZACH WOODS), the Ice Ninja; Jay (voice of KUMAIL NANJIANI), the Lightning Ninja; and Cole (voice of FRED ARMISEN), a.k.a. the Earth Ninja.

Little does Garmadon know that the Green Ninja is actually Lloyd, the son he abandoned as a baby because he couldn't handle the responsibilities of fatherhood and only wanted to conquer and dominate the masses. Lloyd has always known the truth, though. In fact, practically all of Ninjago City has known that Garmadon is Lloyd's father and has blamed him for his near-constant marauding over the years. But Lloyd has kept his ninja exploits from everyone except his fellow ninjas ... even his kind-hearted mother (voice of OLIVIA MUNN).

When Garmadon attacks again and finally takes over Ninjago City, Lloyd's mentor, Master Wu (voice of JACKIE CHAN), sends the ninjas on a quest for an ultimate weapon that can defeat Garmadon and the enormous cat monster that Lloyd inadvertently unleashed on the city. But Master Wu's real objective is to teach Lloyd to step up and finally be the leader of the team ... even as he and Garmadon grow closer as father and son.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those who love LEGO toys or who grew up with them or have enjoyed the other LEGO movies will be attracted to this one.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some mild action and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
