Introduction to Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie Review by Ms. H

Lego Movie 2: The Second Part movie sort of sneaked up on me. One minute the movie was not out, and the next, it was showing in movie theaters. I did not see any trailers or promotions for this movie.  On second thought, this may be a good thing. Find out why from my movie review here.

Pros of Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

Short Movie Length of Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

This movie is not lengthy.  In fact, it lasts only 1 hour 47 minutes.  Once you sit down to watch the movie, just wait a few minutes and the movie will be over before you know it.

Superheros and Some Actors' Cameos in Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

There are a few scenes showing superheros as well as movie actors as Lego characters.  Of the group I saw, I was impressed with the Wizard of Oz Lego characters as they danced together arm in arm. Unfortunately this scene appeared only a few seconds in the movie.

Cons of Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

Redundant Movie Title - "Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" 

There is something to say about a movie that calls the sequel -- “The Second Part” after already adding a “2” after the title.  This is redundant and shows a lack of thought and attention that was used to name this movie.

Tiffany Haddish's Singing in Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

I instantly recognized Tiffany Haddish’s voice as she played one of the major roles in this movie as a Lego character.  Sady, this character sings lead in a song which was not music to my ears. Tiffany Haddish said her goal was to do fifty movies by the time she is fifty years old. When she said this during one of her interviews, Tiffany Haddish added that the movies would not all be good movies.  Well, she can add this to her filmography as one of the bad ones.

Lack of Humor in Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

Just so you know, the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part movie scenes change from animation to having real-life actors. If you see this movie, do not expect to laugh or even to crack a smile during either part.

It would be an understatement to say that I expected more humor in the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part movie. I watched the entire movie and can say there was only one part that made me laugh.The laugh I got was during the real-life segment when the the mother scolds the children for arguing with each other and calls down to the father for reinforcement. His response and how he said it was funny to me. That was the extinct of the humor from my viewpoint.   

No Cohesiveness in the Storyline for Lego Movie 2: the Second Part Movie

To me, there was no cohesiveness in the movie storyline.  Initially, you may think that Emmet's goal is to save Lucy. But as the story progresses, you find that it’s really Lucy who is trying to save Emmet. Still as the movie goes on, you may think the plot involved Emmet trying to save himself from his future self. 

Repetitive Scenarios  in Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

I lost count of the number of times an animated Lego character in the movie would find itself isolated under the real dryer in the home.  The first time was sort of interesting, but after the third or fourth time, this action became old to me.

Poor Script for Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

It looks like the writers may have been under some sort of time-crunch to get this movie out. Not only did the script play like a rush job, but it looks like the writers wanted to put an end to this movie fast. Spoiler Alert: In fact, if you watch this movie, there will be a false ending -- but then (unfortunately)  the movie starts again.

Lackluster Songs in Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

None of the movie songs were catchy or seemed to be one that would find life outside of this movie.  There was even a song titled something to the effect of “This song will get stuck in your head” -- which of course it did not.  I forgot the song as soon as it thankfully ended.

Recommendations for Lego Movie 2: the Second Part Movie

Learn from Other Successful Cartoon - Animated Movies

A passable successful animated movie, among many, that I recall was Incredibles 2.  This movie had comedy, adventure, and suspense, all mixed in together.  I think the writers can take lessons or learn from these type animated movies if there are plans to make another Lego movie.

When a Movie is Not Ready for Release -- Don’t Release It

Lego Movie 2: The Second Part movie seemed like a conglomerate of scenes thrown haphazardly together. If there are any other subsequent Lego movies, the writers should take the time to develop a high quality script instead of the low standard animated cartoon that I saw.

Assessment of the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

Unfortunately, in my opinion, this movie was not humorous, funny, entertaining, or worth my time to watch. Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie’s savings grace was it’s a relatively short film and during the movie a few notable cameo actors and superheroes appeared as Lego characters. 

A word of advice: If you are thinking about seeing the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part at the theaters, or anywhere for that matter, you may want to reconsider.

Rating of the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie

Based on a rating of 1 star to 5 stars, I rate Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Movie 1 ¼ stars.
