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.
Is Lego 2 as good as the original? Not really. Few things take the bloom off a creative concept like a sequel. But the movie has a knack for throwing pop-culture references at the screen with a wild abandon that's hard to resist.
It's a bunch of plastic blocks that have an adventure, and it's basically insane; not quite as pleasantly so as the first movie (the element of astonished surprise isn't there), but hey, that's a high bar.
Speaking of songs, steel yourself for another insidious earworm. Like the movie, it's obvious and overeager, a piece of commercial pop art manufactured within an inch of its life. But it's also not wrong, and will very much get stuck inside your head.
A sly, subversive and decidedly pointed argument against xenophobia that asks, can't we all just get along? ... Although it's packaged in a wild, neon-bright, irreverent movie about toy bricks, it's a moral that resonates deeply.
Equals the zaniness of the fantastic first "Lego Movie" by giving most of its overflowing cast something to do, adding extra emotional layers with a live-action familial component, and doubling and tripling down on catchy songs.
Proves every bit as repetitive and uninspired as its glib title, bringing little that's fresh or funny to the interlocking brick table despite boasting a script penned by originators Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
