The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part limits itself by being predictable and not growing up as it should have.

This time around, everything is just okay.

Lord Business was Right, and the more we accept that fact, the easier it is to understand why "The Lego Movie 2" just doesn't hit the mark.
February 7, 2019
For shockingly long stretches, this new Lego Movie is more of an ungainly, plodding jumble than a functional film.

"Doesn't always go the distance...but it's solid, effective, and never violates the MPAA ratings criteria for a PG rating. And after all, isn't that what's most important?"
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

It never fully comes together without breaking up the forward momentum, and sadly that means it doesn't work.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 7, 2019
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is undone by its pedigree and diminishing returns, resulting in a perfectly average movie that should have been so much more.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 7, 2019
Frantic and repetitive... and kind of tired.
February 8, 2019
Not only are things no longer "awesome," they're all the way down to just "meh."
Full Review | Original Score: C+
February 9, 2019
In the end, it becomes obvious that The Lego Movie 2 just never really knew what it wanted to be.
Full Review | Original Score: D
February 7, 2019
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
February 7, 2019
Sequel may be a little too meta for its own good.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 8, 2019
It unfortunately slips into most of the common sequel pitfalls.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
February 25, 2019
What passes for narrative requires manufacturing an antagonist whose motivations never make sense and whose very existence disregards the absurd yet otherwise continuous rules defining Emmet's universe.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Exhausted, and exhausting.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Here I am watching a movie about LEGOs, and the whole thing felt a little preachy.

All in all, The LEGO Movie 2 feels like more movie than the first one, which somehow winds up making it feel like less.
February 7, 2019
The movie is such a non-stop assault on the eyes and ears that it's not merely a challenge to keep up with everything that's going on, but a headache.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
