The creativity put into bringing the world to life was amazing to see and made the film more enjoyable. Huge shoutout to Batman since he's probably the best character, again, because he is given some of the funniest moments.
There were a couple of things that did make it hard for me to fully enjoy the movie though. I did not realize I was going to be watching a musical and probably would have liked to know that before I saw it. The Lego Movie 2 also used much more live action footage than I was expecting, which I did not enjoy. It used so much of it in fact, I thought I was watching a live action Toy Story movie at times. I can fully respect how the first movie handled the difference between the Lego world and the real one, but this film has a plot point that defies logic which made it hard for me to accept.
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part comes down to how much work you want to put into finding more enjoyable aspects of the movie; it’s here where its true value comes out. There are enough jokes throughout for kids to enjoy it and for a middle-aged lady to laugh louder than everyone else. It’s exactly the same as the first in that respect; if you like the first, you’ll enjoy the second. Do you need to rush out on release day to see it?— not really, but the decision ultimately comes down to you. All I can say is: I laughed and was annoyed— which created a completely balanced experience for me.
I want to thank the advertising team for not spoiling the movie in the trailers
