This sequel to the 2014 celebrated blockbuster has lost much of the irresistible gap of the original.
Even if you can not afford the tedious challenge of replicating this dizzying ingenuity of the 2014 original and, to a lesser extent, the Lego Batman spin-off of 2017 – The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part feel a threadbare, unlicensed knockoff.
Many of the visual gags that were previously so amusing are repeated. The latest issue turns out to be as repetitive and uninspired as her feeble title fresh or witty for the interlocking brick table, though he authored a script by the writers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
The feature is headed by Mike Mitchell, with the same breathless overburdening he employed at Trolls . and the end effect is unlikely to have a problem if the target audience becomes willing submission when it comes to the theater. Still, it is daunting to see how ubiquitous this once-promising Tentpole has become.
Five years after construction worker Emmet Brickowski (Chris Pratt) and a company triumphant over the evil Lord Business (Will Ferrell), the story captures the clearly more infantile DUPLO invaders who overcome their earlier threat, their beloved To reduce Bricksburg to a heap of rubble called him Apocalypseburg.
But while Emmet has remained his Gosh-Gee-Whiz-self, his BFF Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) has evolved into a "Mad Max-style", butt-kicking tough chick who is slowly losing his patience with his ever-naive Behavior loses, especially after they were kidnapped, Batman (Will Arnett), Unikitty (Alison Brie) and Bricksburgians.
You will be directed to a galaxy led by the shapeshifting Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi (an instantly recognizable Tiffany Haddish) who, especially in reference to him, would appear doubtful for romantic feelings for Batman.
This Lego adventure is an issue that seems to be about growing up and accepting change. It's terribly happy just to show more of it. Much of the satirical fun ends here (apart from the minifigures Bruce Willis and Ruth Bader Ginsburg), with the rest of the production running on reusable parts ̵
As for the necessary stupid dummies, you know that everything is not great when the best comes out of it is a tune called "Catchy Song" with the impending refrain: "This song will get stuck in your head."
