Staff Review

Aaron Bulger:
Studless Freedom is a cartoony short detailing a minifigure's various attempts to exit the plain, grey baseplate on which he is trapped, utilizing various weapons, vehicles and other assorted methods. The cinematography is bland by design, with the simple baseplate and desk, and the amalgamation of stock cartoon sound effects and classical music may prove off-putting. Nonetheless, Studless Freedom may entertain, especially those who enjoy straight-shooting cartoon gags.
