Jack Stone: We Salute You!, also known as LEGO Jack Stone or simply Jack Stone, is a 2001 CG brickfilm produced by Artworld UK for The LEGO Group. It is a promotional film that advertises the LEGO theme Jack Stone.[1] It was produced by the studio that had previously produced the CG cutscenes for multiple LEGO video games, as well as some LEGO commercials and other promotional materials.[2]

The film was distributed on a VHS tape that was sent for free to subscribers of the LEGO Club Magazine. It could also be received via in-store giveaways.[3] Reports state that individual portions of the film were available to view on the LEGO website, and that the film later became available on Comcast On Demand.[4]

Plot synopsis Edit

The film takes the form of a special news report paying tribute to the heroics of Jack Stone. The reporter is joined by the chiefs of three public services, who each tell a story of an event in which Jack Stone greatly assisted them.[1]

Res Q
While a parade is taking place in the city, a truck collides with a water tower, and the city is flooded. Helicopters cannot get low enough to rescue the civilians due to the parade banners. The rescue boat is called in, but is blocked by an overturned truck. Jack Stone arrives to save the day by attaching helicopter rotors to the boat, and flying low over the vehicles and under the banners to reach the stranded civilians.

Police
A criminal breaks an associate out of prison, and the pair head to rob a bank. A police helicopter lands on the roof of the bank, and the criminals manage to steal it. The police are at a loss for what to do, but Jack Stone arrives and, taking inspiration from a fishing rod, rigs up a contraption to catch the helicopter out of the sky.

Fire
While the fire department is busy keeping a massive fire under control, another building across town is going up in flames. Jack Stone arrives on the scene, and he creates a device to lift the building on a flatbed truck. He drives to the ocean and reverses the building into it, extinguishing the flames.

Ice rescue
The news report is interrupted by a breaking story of a man stuck out on the frozen harbor, after attempting to ice skate. A rescue helicopter crashes into a bridge, a rescue boat cannot make it past the ice, and the ladder on a fire engine is too short to reach the man from the road. Jack Stone arrives and takes parts from all of the nearby vehicles to construct a walker with a ladder on the front, to reach and rescue the trapped man.
