Moviefone's 'The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part' Review

Five years ago, the notion of a movie about Legos seemed ridiculous, but after $500 million in box office receipts and two successful spin-offs, "The Lego Movie 2" is a highly- and understandably-anticipated event sequel. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, returning as co-screenwriters and producers, hand the reigns of this unlikely but irresistible franchise off to "Trolls" director Mike Mitchell for a story that builds (no pun intended) on the foundation of the first in terms of its thematic complexity, while expanding its eclectic landscape with the energy and abandon of an eight-year-old building a playset out of random bricks recovered from the forgotten corners of her toy box. Though not quite as effective as the first film (due in small part to a less clear idea, but also to the growing abundance of Lego-themed movies) "Lego Movie 2" exudes a certain sort of overpowering, sensory-overload charm to muscle its way into audiences' hearts even if afterward their minds may remain a bit discombobulated by the experience.

Picking up right where the previous movie ended, Bricksburg has been overrun by destructive, childlike Duplo blocks, turning the city into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Despite this, Emmet (Chris Pratt) retains his unrelentingly optimistic outlook on life, to the growing consternation of his jaded "special best friend" Lucy (Elizabeth Banks). But when General Mayhem (Stephanie Beatriz) attacks the newly branded "Apocalypseburg" and captures Lucy, Batman (Will Arnett) and all of Emmet's closest friends, he embarks on a dangerous journey to the Systar System to rescue them from a matrimonial ceremony for Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi (Tiffany Haddish).
