The battle to defeat the LEGO DUPLO invaders and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmel, Lucy, Batman and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy where everything is a musical. it will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
Animated Action Adventure - Like the first film, this is an animated action/adventure/comedy
based on the popular construction block toys, with some brief live
action scenes, this time with more of a science fiction twist and a
musical angle. The main voice cast of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks,
and Will Arnett return, with newcomers including Tiffany Haddish.
Will Ferrell only has a small vocal cameo this time around. There is
some mildly crude humor and adult references that will fly over kids'
heads, and most parents will find this safe viewing.
Roger EbertFull Review Good ...while it's a lot of fun, it isn't as consistently clever or thrilling as its predecessor. There are more wildly entertaining and insanely catchy songs than ever... But something's just missing here—a crucial piece, if you will, that keeps the whole set from snapping together. Maybe it's a lack of novelty, pure and simple.
Rolling StoneFull Review Good It's a drag when the movie pauses to deliver moral lessons about the need to grow up and deal with the world when it's not awesome. Luckily, the pauses get fewer and fewer. And the good times roll as we watch this Lego menagerie dig itself out of an existential mess.
Rex ReedFull Review Poor ...a plot that is both unwieldy and unsatisfying. And 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.
