Staff Review

Randy Yard:
The story isn't, and the "lolwut" ending isn't as "lol" as the director was undoubtedly trying for, but visually this one isn't bad at all. The sword fight is nothing spectacular but animated nicely, and while the camera angles aren't especially inventive, they're framed well and there's some excellent camera movement mixed in. You won't be bookmarking this one for future views, but if you're looking for a pointless LEGO sword fight, this minute-long short certainly fits the bill.
