    I think his last decent movie as a protagonist was Rob Roy.

    Edit: stupid 'funny' photo got taken out by its host :(

    I hope they're doing this in stop-motion instead of CGI.

    Well apart from Neeson killing some Albanian thugs, the movie was not that good in my view :/

    I'm hearing mixed messages. Some say it's total CGI, some say it's stop-motion blended with digital, and originally the project had a live-action component (which probably pertains to the main villain since the plot appears to contain a layer of meta).

    Meh, too intellectual for my tastes. I'll wait for the Duplo movie.

    I might see this in theaters. It's as close to a DYOS movie as we're gonna get.

    I think it's CGI animated to look stop-motion.

    If there's an official site, we could check.

    If it was CGI I think it would look like those Lego video games, but it looks like a stop-motion video off of YouTube. I would guess both, but I'm not sure.

    That wasn't an endorsement of that particular movie, it was a warning. :evil:

    They have an official website, but it's shockingly minimalist, and their Facebook page is basically an art gallery (which is nonetheless still cool). They describe it as "3D computer animated", but as the trailer demonstrates if it isn't stop-motion then they're doing their damndest to make us think it is.

    In which case, mad respect. :cool:

    Even if it was stop-motion, lego stop-motion is crap. Stop-motion itself is surely a very cool way of animating, particularly with clay or centered on clay and including other materials too :)

    I juts can't see how Lego is interesting unless you're actually playing with it?

    Must.....avoid.....obvious double entendre.

    *disappointed grunt*

    I have to disagree with you on that, I've seen a lot of lego stop-motion that wasn't crap.
