A crazy moebius strip of postmodern recursive metatextuality. With songs.
April 15, 2019
Smart sequel full of jubilant energy and cynicism-free writing.

The Second Part attempts to recapture the 2014 adventure's joyful silliness and witty magic but struggles to match the inventiveness that made the original so enjoyable.

The basic formula used to make the first film is just tweaked a bit, but remains firmly in place. Emmett and Lucy exist to bring youthful joy and exuberance to the world..."Everything's Not Awesome"...but it's still pretty good.

If you're willing to let the quantum mechanics slide, you'll have a pretty awesome time.
April 2, 2019
Surprises in its own way, on its own terms, bringing some surprisingly sophisticated storytelling to the table.

The Second Part pierces through its problems by wrapping you up in a snuggly message about family and love.

If all this sounds a little cluttered and convoluted then that's because it is, and yet there's plenty here to enjoy.

These are the only pictures I love that also give me a stress headache.

The Lego Movie 2 covers a lot of the same ground as the first movie, but since it's still as entertaining as it is, audiences probably won't mind.
March 23, 2019
While the reference-filled dialogue delivery is as slick as ever in the latest flick, the tarnish is really starting to show, with fewer big laughs and some surprisingly average visuals.
March 21, 2019
Serious undertones aside, The Second Part is also a heck a lot of fun.

The Lego Movie 2 rarely finds a way to break free of the series' now-entrenched formula. It is definitely fun, but just as definitely less memorable than that first unforgettable installment.
March 20, 2019
The Lego Movie 2 achieves the impossible. It's a rare film; a perfectly crafted sequel that expands on the world and mythology of its predecessor, but stands firmly on its own little Lego-legs.

Lego Movie 2: The Second Part doesn't have the freshness and spontaneity of its predecessor. Nevertheless, it is a charming, amusing and clever sequel. [Full review in Spanish]
March 19, 2019
LEGO MOVIE 2 is not as a surprising breath of fresh air as its predecessor. Yet, it is still great and you should definitely see it.
March 18, 2019
Being open-hearted means that sometimes things may not go well... What's truly impressive is that the movie gives that message to young audiences first through its rollicking Lego-based adventure, but also through a relatable, real-world example.
March 14, 2019
Just as clever, inventive and funny as the original, even if a bit of the novelty has worn off.
March 9, 2019
The absurd, existential, creative edge that really defined the first film has been replaced by something a little more ordinary, and far more predictable.
March 5, 2019
Any kids movie that references 2001: A Space Odyssey and Die Hard gets my vote...
