If you're willing to let the quantum mechanics slide, you'll have a pretty awesome time.

A semi-brilliant family movie, guaranteed to leave both kids and adults buzzing.

By this point... I think I've had enough of The Lego Movies. These things can only go so far and I think they may have exceeded their natural life span.

Viewers reared on "The Lego Movie" will find plenty to nourish them anew.

Suffice to say that it's a hell of a ride, with poignant things to say about the earnestness of adolescence and the frustrations of sibling conflict.

Exhausted, and exhausting.

And while it takes a few beats to rediscover the manic rhythm of the original, about half an hour in, every piece more or less clicks, and I will not apologize for that sentence.

"Lego 2" is like stepping on a Lego.
February 8, 2019
A hugely ambitious sequel, joyous and genuinely complex, that's charged with dramatic and musical energy to the very last frame.

The expression "more of the same" isn't always what artists want to hear, but for "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" it is very good news indeed.

"The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" is at times enormously fun... But like a forced marriage between a Lego minifig and a Duplo character, its parts don't fit together seamlessly.

Lord and Miller have always known what they're doing, but here it feels like they need you to know it, too.

It's like watching an infomercial where children mindlessly smash heaping piles of name-branded toys together for the better part of two hours - although the children are invisible for the most part.

It's almost impossible to resist "The Lego Movie 2" for its continued everything-is-awesomeness, even if it does fall back on the trope of playthings terrified of being relegated to the storage bin.

While the new film is heavy-handed in its messaging about friendship and the power of getting along, it does so with little of the emotional heft of the previous installments-and about half the wit.
February 7, 2019
Far from awesome, it settles for being just OK -- lacking the surprise that elevated the original, while appearing reasonably content to simply follow the instructions.

"Everything's Not Awesome," but just enough is to keep this series in one piece.
February 7, 2019
The Chris Pratt/Elizabeth Banks duo remains a very appealing protagonist pair, the movie doesn't take itself too seriously, the sheer volume of non sequitur cameos is astonishing and the moral is another sweet one.
February 7, 2019
More in-jokes and wisecracks than new ideas here, but the animation still dazzles and the voice-cast still charms.

The film's final section features a clever-but-earned and entirely character-based pivot that serves to deepen and complicate its themes, adding a welcome layer of nuance to the proceedings.
