The Lego Movie 2 builds a dizzying, gloriously silly sequel
TV and Movies
Hang on to your fronds, Planty.
We're going to save Lucy.
Everything is awesome for LEGO fans.
The LEGO Movie 2 has arrived.
The fantastic plastic sequel explodes onto the big screen like a fireworks display of demented humor and incandescent animation.
Is it as fresh as the first LEGO Movie?
The Lego Movie 2, The Second Part arrives five years and two spinoffs after the first film.
So the novelty has worn off a bit but it's still funny, noisy, silly, and sincere.
The gags come quick and fast, almost too fast sometimes.
But this dizzying assault on the senses is just so gloriously unrestrained that most of the jokes hit home.
Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks return as Emmet and Lucy the yellow heros of the Lego world.
This time their existence is threatened by rampaging dewclaw monsters from the [INAUDIBLE] system.
Prompting them to adopt a grim and gritty tone as they battle against glitter spatted childish ways.
The film follows a dual narrative, showing both the Lego world and the real world where older brother and younger sister clash over their toys.
At the same time, the Lego characters drop pop culture references left and right, making this the most multilayered metatextual kid's cartoon since Spider-Man went into the Spider-Verse.
Plus, the songs.
The second part is all about the catchy pop.
There's even a new tune called, This Song's Gonna Get Stuck Inside Your Head.
It doesn't quite measure up to the first movie's anthem, Everything is Awesome, but it's still a blast.
Which pretty much sums up the whole sequel.
This is a film in which a vampire DJ hangs out with a prudish ice cream and a spaceship crewed by velociraptors races to stop a wedding between a shape-changer and Batman.
It's fast funny and bursting with imagination, what more could you ask?
And cut, great take Rich.
Thanks, now how do i get down from here?
