The obvious parallels you might make won't overshadow what the barrage of glitter, color, and catchy tunes will do to make you smile, forget the mess the world is in, and enjoy your popcorn. The real world can wait.
The assertion that boys ought to grow up acknowledging their feelings and with kindness, imagination and compassion is neither a controversial argument nor one that is reinforced nearly enough. What a surprise to find it made here.
What largely made The LEGO Movie so popular was the unexpected twist at the end -- and the unexpected poignancy it provided. With that cat (Unikitty?) out of the bag, the film has to work overtime to manufacture a similar scenario and similar sentiments.
A sequel that pulls time-and-a-half to carry all the corporate water the first one left at the bottom of a hill. To watch it feels like freebasing fifteen 5-Hour Energy drinks, and its message -play nice with siblings to get more LEGOs - is rancid.
The animation is still as smooth, colorful, and stunning throughout, but unfortunately, this time around the story isn't quite where it needs to be to make this an adventure worth another 90-minute investment.
