Warning: Contains strong, pervasive violence.
Lots of LEGO dudes shoot each other--a lot--in what is basically a demo reel for the Brickarms catalog. It's executed well for the most part (effects compositing is a sore spot in places, though it's still better than 95\% of what's out there), including some of this director's best animation and camera work to date. That said, it's the same story-less killfest that Keshen has made multiple times already, this one with a deceptive title designed purely to lure non-brickfilm viewers (a ploy that has worked brilliantly). You can't blame him for going with what works, but this is not a film that's going to make him any new fans among those already familiar with his work. But if you're a fan of gratuitous, Rambo-level plasticine violence, you'll be happy to join the 3.5+ million viewers who've already checked this one out.
