The "LEGO" movie series was on the roll, but many critics are calling the newest entry "The LEGO Ninjago Movie" lackluster. While "The LEGO Movie" and "The LEGO Batman Movie" wowed moviegoers, critics are recommending you not waste your time on the third installment. Others are calling "Ninjago" a humorous adventure with a star-stubbed voice cast. Will the third film live up to previous "LEGO" movies? 🎥

Below is the synopsis of "The LEGO Ninjago Movie," per IMDB and Warner Bros. Pictures

The battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd's dad.

Watch the trailer below, and decide for yourself if the film lives up to the previous "LEGO" films. 

Arizona Republic's Bill Goodykoontz likes the film. It's fun and adventurous, and that's all it needs to be. He gave the film three out of five stars. He writes:

“The LEGO Ninjago Movie” is a worthwhile entry into this growing universe, expanding it but not really evolving it. It’s fun, but not especially memorable.
Las Vegas Weekly's Josh Bell gave the movie two and a half stars out of five stars. Many other critics agree with him the film is inferior to the previous two "LEGO" entries. He writes:
In 2014, The Lego Movie was commercially and critically successful because it did something unexpected, building a dense, quick-witted and self-referential story out of what could have been a 100-minute toy commercial. Now three movies into the animated Lego franchise, the once-unexpected has become formulaic, and the pop-culture quips and meta-humor have started to run a bit thin.
