Picking up a few years after the last Lego movie ending, this one has our heroes facing a bleak existence in a post-apocalyptic world. Nevertheless, dear Emmet is still just his happy-go-lucky self. Lucy would like him to grow up and face reality.
- So corny, it hurts.
- You have to expect that it’s going to have the same oddball brand of humor that the first did. There’s an entire song about credits as the credit roll.
- There are a few intriguing twists.
- Most of the humor is aimed at adults.
- Character development is decent.
- I loved the building scenes and enjoyed the little references to which set numbers applied to each unique piece.
- I enjoyed how they wove the people and the Lego stories together again.
- Kid-friendly movie.
- Songs as a whole here kind of stink.
- I pretty much knew from the trailer what to expect.
- Totally jealous of the Lego collection these people have. Literally thousands of dollars in the little building toys.
Not going down as my favorite movie this year, but I’m glad I saw it once.
