Audience Reviews for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

I actually enjoyed Lego 2, probably because of all the kids in the cinema and how fun it was watching this with them - the squeals and laughter, and reminding myself that sometimes films need to be watched from childlike lenses. It was enjoyable and entertaining, visually mesmerising with a lot of heart. Can't complain.

Certainly not as good as the first one, but to be fair, that came completely out of left field, with The Second Part there was actually some degree of expectation. Very much a kids' film, but there's still a little bit of that broader appeal and deeper meaning that was found in the first one. Amazing from what amounts to a 107 minute ad for branded plastic blocks.

Everything might not be awesome but it's still pretty great for this creative, heartfelt, and hyperactive family franchise that is better than it has any right to be thanks in part to returning writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. It's not quite as fresh and clever as the first go-round but it manages to better its predecessor in some key ways. Now that we know the colorful and zany antics of the animated Lego characters are also simultaneously the imaginative play of a real-world family, it provides a deeper thematic subtext with the unseen nature of siblings in conflict. I remember my own younger sister wanting to play with me and my toys, and me rebuffing her, and the film struck home some key emotional points about the inclusion of cooperative play. The different styles of play are on display as our characters are abducted by a shape-shifting space queen (voiced by Tiffany Haddish) who is determined to marry Batman and possibly rule the universe. A fantastic running joke is how transparently malevolent the queen is, which leads to an even better payoff. There are more songs and each is pretty well constructed, relevant to the story, and assuredly catchy, like "Catchy Song" used to brainwash people through pop, and a mournful version of "Everything's Not Awesome" that becomes genuinely inspirational and uplifting by its climax. The life lessons are easily digestible and the sense of breezy fun is still alive and well. I was laughing throughout, sometimes quite hard, and the brother/sister subtext had me wondering if I owed my younger sister a decades-late apology for my behavior (sorry, Natalie). Lego Movie 2 is a worthy sequel that finds new and interesting ways to build off the irreverent original's model. Bring on the Toy Story 3-style ending where our grown-up owner says goodbye to his childhood toys and friends. At this point, Lord and Miller can do anything and imbue it with wild wit, whimsy, and unparalleled mass entertainment (except Star Wars, I suppose). Nate's Grade: B+

When it comes to films made for children, you have to let certain things slide that may have you rolling your eyes or making you annoyed, simply because the jokes arenâ(TM)t for you. Personally, I feel thatâ(TM)s only true for some films and The Lego Movie definitely didnâ(TM)t fit that description, because it was made for everyone. For that reason alone I was very excited for the sequel, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. This sequel is surely made for a younger audience, more so than its predecessor, but the heart and comedy is just as present. This is one of the best direct sequels Iâ(TM)ve seen to a film in quite some time. These two films go hand in hand and I donâ(TM)t want to see a third addition, simply because these two work so well together. Picking up immediately following the events of the first, Finn has to allow his sister to play with Legos in the real world. Jumping five years into the future to show what has become of that, the heart of this film may even be larger than the first film as a whole. The sense of adventure and originality is only slightly lost here, seeing as the charm of the first will never be fully captured again. There was something very special about that one and I believe that was lightning in a bottle. That truly is my only gripe with this movie, because The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part builds off the characters from the first film and creates an equally enjoyable ride of a film. With Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, and Tiffany Haddish (just to name a few) as the leading voices of your film, itâ(TM)s hard to go wrong in terms of how your comedy will be delivered. I found myself laughing hysterically on multiple occasions. From the clever puns to the emotional core this film brings by the third act, this is a movie that had a lot of care put into it and the vocal performances only helped that. The characters in the real world were further explored, making me appreciate the first film even more and the addition of Rex Dangervest to the cast of characters was easily one of the highlights of the movie. Not that I had an issue with these aspects, but where I fear this film may lose some viewers is in its musical numbers. This movie has a lot more catchy songs than the first film and characters even break out into full musical numbers. If youâ(TM)re not into musicals, certain scenes may annoy you here. That being said, the lyrics were hilarious and extremely clever, which made for enjoyable sequences. This is a film that knows the audience it needs to pander to and I felt this film was striving for that a little more than the first. In the end, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part felt like an earned sequel that carefully took the best aspects of the first and built on them. While the spark and magic the first film left many viewers may not be completely present here, itâ(TM)s very hard to complain about this sequel. Seamlessly blending emotion, comedy, and the sense of adventure, I had an absolute blast with this movie. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part was worth the wait and is more than a worthy sequel.
