The 7 year old became cranky (It's too long) the 5 yr old fell asleep.

If you liked the first one (I rate it 7/10) for it's (unexpected) originality and humour, maybe skip this one, it is far far inferior to its predecessor.

That truly is my only gripe with this movie, because The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part builds off the characters from the first film and creates an equally enjoyable ride of a film.

Solid sequel, fun, exciting .

Lego Movie 2 has really stunning animation that pops out like a rainbow .

Save your money.

Honestly, I enjoyed it as much as the original .

With the quality animation, everything looks realistic, the charm and humour is infectious, the dialogue and sight gags are all funny for all ages, the story is fun, the colourful bricks for everything is even more imaginative, and the songs are enjoyable, especially the fittingly titled "Catchy Song" (or "This Song's Gonna Get Stuck Inside Your Head"), an awesome computer-animated action comedy.

The first movie in the plastic construction toys movie franchise was fantastic, and the spin-off Lego Batman Movie was brilliant, but The Ninjago Movie was a disappointment, now comes this fourth entry, a direct sequel to the first, and expectations were high for it to be as enjoyable.

No no no.. storyline and storytelling are messy, Confusing conversations, bad directing, and the songs are bad, too.

It's definitely worth watching time and time again!

The animation has greatly improved, even if some elements look the same, it still contains the great details from the other films, although the first movie's animation is attention to detail, this one has a realistic to it, by that I mean the backgrounds, like Batman and Ninjago, the backgrounds have those very down to earth and realistic look to it, normally it would take me out of the film since it doesn't fit but it does somewhat make sense, the energy, the colours, the movements and designs are all still wonderful and fascinating to watch, the character designs still have that real LEGO mini fig look to it, Queen Watevra Wa' Nabi's animation is visually the best thing about the film, every time you see her shapeshift, it is absolutely amazing!

The story, characters and dialog was just kind of dull - which is surprising given that it had the same writers and screenwriter as the original.

As a standalone movie, it is fun, divergent, and entertaining.

I walked into the theatre SUPER excited, but when I walked out, I was very depressed.

But that's not to downplay the movie or anything because it's an incredibly fun time, it's very clever with it's humor and approach to it's story, the characters are still great and entertaining, the animation is still absolutely wonderful to look at and all of the songs in this film are great.

More like total waste of time .

Dont waste your money.

The movie really suffers from all the confusion.

It doesn't have the same surprise, but it retains the heart and love of the product that makes it go beyond a "toy commercial" in to a true heartwarming, entertaining, and most of all, funny movie with a great theme embedded in it.

It's with great joy that I can say that The LEGO Movie 2 surpasses all expectations, and becomes another unexpected treat for the family.

Lord and Miller perfectly position the story with the characters from the first film in their original setting, down at their owner's (Finn) basement, five years after were they left off, only now the toys' have been immersed in a post-apocalyptic, Mad Max environment beautifully brought to life with stunningly crisp animation.

I enjoyed it more the second time because I caught things I missed the first time.

Was Looking Forward To It -- But It Was Boring .

However, the combination of quick moving CGI with stop motion characteristic is a bit hard to follow during a few action scenes.

There are several musical numbers and some of them will probably get stuck in you head, well after you have left the theater.

The metaphysics is confusing without any in-universe explanation.

The songs seem a little out of place too but it's still an enjoyable sequel if you lower your expectations.

A very important idea told by an unexpected form of entertainment which makes this movie a must see for everyone.

The surprise appearance of an 80s action hero and a host of DC superheroes were the most enjoyable moments.

Back in 2014, "The LEGO Movie" had to overcome the enormous challenge of adapting a storyless toy brand into a compelling blockbuster.

The point is the movie is lame and boring.

Some new twists were added, and it was very enjoyable for me and my 13 year old son.

This is so boring .

However, watching it is enjoyable.

TL;DR: This movie is really fun and enjoyable.

One of the better strengths of the film is that there is more lasting time to enjoy the colourful bricked universe of the Lego world, instead of the fast paced brick smashing action cut with the attitude of Michael Bay film.

While everyone else is on the edge.

At some points, the film just comes to a halt so they can fit in a pointless song that it doesn't need.

Its message is quite good, and the film is funny and enjoyable, and certainly entertaining along the way.

I was fighting all the movie to stay awake.

The animation is stunning and I love it.

I didn't enjoy Batman as much, but I still really enjoyed it.

While The Lego Movie 2 wasn't as good or as clever as the original Lego Movie, the story was still enjoyable and heartfelt, with the introduction of many new and unique characters to the Lego Movie universe.

A bit disappointing, but still enjoyable .

The story was entertaining and enjoyable the entire runtime.

I'm sorry to everyone who liked it but for me the script felt under done bland and boring.

I enjoyed it loads.

It's not quite as good as its predecessor, but it's still thoroughly entertaining from start to finish.

I very much enjoyed the sub plot between the family who had the LEGO, because that brought the film into much more depth and made it more exciting.

At least they had clever quips for adults dragged to the movie.

The new story delay a little bit to be placed, but when new characters are show, the movie get better, I love the humans in the real life, rememberers me "toy story" and is so emotional when you understand what is happening, the legos have some moments that is funny and musically perfect, it's pretty enjoyable.

She was funny and an enjoyable character.

I fell asleep a few times watching it.

And boring.

The animation is stunning and looking at its finest.

This mundane scheme appeared to be leading this movie off into oblivion.

The story was adequately entertaining, at least my 9 year old son was thoroughly entertained.

The human world scenes, while fascinating in the first movie, seemed awkward here.

An incredibly fast paced film.

By Nelson Nantanapibul Director: Mike Mitchell Voice cast: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Tiffany Haddish, Stephanie Beatriz The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part was a really fun and enjoyable film.

Colorful and musically entertaining .

But anyone who enjoyed the fast paced wholesome quality of the first Lego Movie will not be disappointed by this entertaining follow up.

Just a hot mess of colourful, pointless garbage.

Despite these positive elements, the film has a few notable weak spots: a glaring cliché mobilized into an attempt at a plot twist, and less clever writing than in the first movie or in "The LEGO Batman Movie" (although there are still plenty of witty laughs for both kids and adults.

One of the plot elements (SPOILER SPOILER time travel SPOILER SPOILER) was confusing and when you think about it too hard it ruins the story.

The movie was a hyper active, confusing, agenda driven, POS.

The story was very boring and the characters from the first film were ruined.

I found myself bored watching the first half of the movie.

As a child its so confusing story they cant follow or understand.

The movie is so boring I fell into sleep 3 times in first 20 minutes, then I just switched it off and had a good sleep.

Really slow and boring!

The real reason why I loved the villain was because of the unexpected plot twist with him.

It plays with the ideas of creativity, building just like the first one does but also incorporates more themes of family and sibling relationships in a fun and exciting movie.

Not funny, boring.....

Yes, the human elements to the film are predictably spoon-fed during the final act, but it's the journey in getting there that makes this adventure worth watching.

Way more awesome than it had any right to be, 2014's "The Lego Movie" was an unexpected success and with its knowing witty style and unexpected heart is legitimately one of the best family films of all time.

But it was so randomly weird and disjointed, full of way-too-fast "jokes", and unnecessarily long that my wife and I were counting down the minutes until it was over while our two young boys experienced their first psychedelic trip of their lives.

It could have done with less songs and more humour for the adults (it's fun rather than funny most of the time), but it stays enjoyable throughout.

I enjoyed it thoroughly.

It really is stunning.

I almost walked out of the theater because I was so bored.

If you enjoyed the original Lego Movie, I feel like you're gonna find this movie equally enjoyable.

It has a great story with a good moral and is always a visual treat, full of fast paced action, bright colours, catchy tunes, and loads of little details that surprise and delight.

If you liked the first movie, you might enjoy this, but for me I was bored and unimpressed.

Boring, aimless sequel .

Still, it's a highly entertaining animation that's more fun than it has any right to be and a definite recommendation to any fans of the 'Lego' franchise.

But whilst this is definitely a really enjoyable second outing, the film does lack the same spark of originality that the original Lego Movie had.

My 12 year old son loved the first movie, but fell asleep during this one.

The main thing that drags this down from being 2019's animated blowout is that the plot is somewhat predictable.

I did enjoy the snappy humor and story of this one.

Don't waste your time .

The movie had a bit more than i expected and was just as enjoyable as it prior entry in the franchise.

The music is also enjoyable; Queen Watevra gets a catchy solo number that could very well result in another Oscar robbery, and another one where she sings with Batman, about Batman (it is the least irritating Tiffany Haddish has ever been).

Kids watched and liked the movie, but did get bored in parts.

And amazingly, it still manages to work just as well and be even more unpredictable despite us knowing who the narrator is and what this is all an extended metaphor for.

Though it's not quite as good as the its predecessor, Lego Movie 2: the Second Part is a very enjoyable film.

If you saw the original Lego Movie a few years back, then you already know that it was one of the smartest, most original, and wildly entertaining children's movies of recent years, with a twist worthy of Hitchcock or Shyamalan.

However, as the movie started it was very slow and dragged.

The Lego Movie 2 I saw was lousy, lazy and dull.

This was just boring.

There's a lot of things that I love of this one: The story, the animation, the unexpected plot twists, the relationship between Emmet and Lucy, the fact that this movie is about both (While the first one was about Emmet), the jokes, the heartwarming moments, the dramatic tension of the film, how Emmet learns to grow up and Lucy how to be more soft, how it conects with Finn (The boy of the first one) and her sister and some other surprises that it left me laughing and droping my jaw down with some shocking moments.

If you want a cliche movie this one is not for you!

I was quite disappointed (and bored) for most of the time spent in the theater.

Corny and poorly done, but so effective because it was yet another layer of folding, and unexpected.

What a waste of 2 hours of my life.

In fact, there was a lot of funny jokes thrown around and obviously very entertaining to watch.

This is definitely not a kid's movie - it's a soulless, boring hackjob that never even tried to be entertaining - it just wants your money.

I fell asleep - twice .

I found this one so much more enjoyable than the first one.

The movie was entertaining all throughout with great animation, fun action scenes and spot on comedy with a quite a few pop culture references, references that actually work in funny ways.

Verdict; Whilst failing to truly live up the the original, The LEGO Movie: The Second Part is still thoroughly enjoyable and proves that a childish concept can actually work to a very emotional degree.

This is funnier and more enjoyable than the first Lego movie!!!!!

The story was engaging, the plot twist was unexpected, the animation was excellent, and the characters were likable.

It sort of rehashes old ideas from the previous Lego films and can make a few intense scenes not as thrilling as they would be.

Funny at the start but did go on a bit and lost its way mid section and the time travel element could be confusing to the younger audience.

it's jokes are bland and to be completely honest my friend nearly fell asleep halfway throughout the movie.

But those issues aside, this is still an incredibly entertaining film that I would gladly watch multiple times.

The rest of the movie was just plain boring.

My partner fell asleep (loudly!

All of that being said, it is still an enjoyable movie with fun visual humour, talented voice work from Pratt, Haddish, and Arnett in particular.

I expected this movie to be an okay kids movie and I was really surprised to see how well put together this film was and how it manages to be entertaining for all ages.

the image is as breathtaking as allway's and the creation freedom are better and compensated for a weaker story

It WAS an improvement from the last movie, which was hard to follow.

After 20 minutes of the movie there were quire a lot of kids asking parents to go out and after one hour it wwas almoust riot happening of bored kids both gender.

The sequel, however, has four or five musical numbers, and while a couple are fun and catchy, there are two that are just awful, proving a boring stumbling block in a film that's otherwise full of energy.

The big twists were either predictable or not as impactful because of the surprise factor the first film had.

The frenetic pace of the movie makes that style even more impressive, things change so quickly and with such variety, there's always something eye catching or stunning to keep your eyes busy.

A vibrant, exciting and beautiful film, it had stunning depth and intelligence, all the while featuring a unique and refreshing brand of self-referential humour that has since proved hugely influential in blockbuster cinema over the last few years, with the advent of the likes of Deadpool, Ralph Breaks The Internet, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and many more.

Without spoiling the movie, there's a certain thing that happens that leaves he movie to go in an interesting direction, but instead it goes into the most predictable direction it could.

My son felt super bored and was wishing for the movie to end.

It was really boring,lame jokes,definitely created for kids not for family like first part.

Everyone in my family enjoyed it.

You're gonna think it's pretty cool if a little repetitive.

After a second viewing, it's proven to be a contrived work made to take advantage of the success of the first installment.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is brimmed with sudden plot twists which younger viewers could easily find confusing.

)Well, it's hard to follow a major hit like the Lego Movie, so I'm sure this wasn't an easy task.

So, if there is to be a third film in a few years (which I hope there is), I'd expect to see a backtracking on turning The Lego Movie into a more generic animated musical, because it's by far this film's most awkward and dull element, and a little out of tune with the often rebellious character of this series.

Was enjoyable although not quite as good as the original.

Be warned its a confusing mess .

Clever, funny and hugely entertaining, albeit not quite as mind-blowing as its groundbreaking predecessor .

The plot was boring and plodding, and you could not connect with any of the characters except Emmet.

Don't waste your money.

If anyone laughed at the showing we were at then they did it very, very quietly - probably through embarrassment - but from what I remember of this waste of time there were few opportunities to even smile.

The second LEGO film has some amusing aspects for adults, but is more entertaining for a younger audience .

The movie was slow, and disjointed and felt like a forced second part to the original.

It turns out to be a bit cliché, which I felt a bit disappointed about.

The animation and action is exciting and beautiful.

Dry, fast paced humor with an original take on the identity battle every person experiences: let out your inner child or be the tough cool adult.

The sequel may not quite have the insanely frantic energy of the first film, something that left me effectively wetting myself with laughter last time round, but that doesn't mean it's not a vibrant and energetic adventure movie, and it's that brilliantly entertaining humour that proves the icing on the cake to a truly wonderful and once again intelligent film.

A problem I have with this movie is the third act because the switch between the Legos and the human got very muddled at times so it was actually quite confusing.

An unexpected suprise, a very enjoyable one.

Boring and lame movie about nothing .

But after a promising beginning, it dragged, and dragged, and dragged.

Sure the original movie had a generic "Chosen One" plot, but the rampant self-awareness made it smart and enjoyable still.

However, this choice somewhat ruins the big twist toward the end of the film; to the point, that became somewhat predictable.

Great for kids, boring for us parents .

After the very enjoyable first movie and fun looking trailers, I had hope this movie would be good, it wasn't.

Animation film also can be boring!

I feel as if the "Catchy Song" scene went on for way too long.

Very clever with all its little inside jokes for adults, all the intriguing action and music for the kids and the funny moments with Maya Rudolph.

Though it may not have made as big of a splash at the box office as some had hoped, the Lego Movie 2 is certainly worth watching, and a delightful continuation of a franchise to love.

That being said, the lyrics were hilarious and extremely clever, which made for enjoyable sequences.

The over 45(ish) males in the audience were very bored.

While it's not as good as either of those two films, it's still a really enjoyable sequel for those who like this franchise.

Also the boys were a distraction after the first hour being bored.

Incredibly meta, entertaining sequel.

Overall it's worth watching once it drops onto a streaming service.

) While I don't think anyone who disliked the first film would care for it, this is an entertaining film that exceeded my expectations for it.

Don't waste your time with this one folks.

The second half has more excitement but still suffered through two terrible musical numbers and predictable plot twists you could see coming from a mile away.

My only other issue with the film is that It can be slow at times.

The plot was also really engaging with a good amount of suspense and subversion to still be entertaining.

While, the struggles between siblings learning how to work together is compelling and emotional, doesn't go against Lego's founder, Ole Kirk Christiansen's policy of non-violence.

While the idea of a long stop motion video using LEGOS sounds like an exciting watch, it was hard for them to convince me to enjoy this seeing as how we now know how these LEGOS came to be.

Don't waste your money.

My eyes were bleeding rainbow dust, it was that intense.

And it explores the same themes, but going in a place that has never seemed as witty, touching and visually engaging as it does before.

Boring as hell and is about nothing.

ITS AS GOOD AND ENTERTAINING AS THE FIRST!!!!!

Thankfully I can say that the sequel is a fun, enjoyable follow up to the first film.

It fits alright, I guess, but it can sometimes feel a bit disjointed.

Additionally, there are boatloads of themes that are acutely wholesome-although, slightly trite-that kids can blissfully digest.

-Major characters in the last movie are now literally just boring side characters.

A little weird, but fun and enjoyable.

This movie is definitely worth watching.

He left the theater saying it was just so bad he never wanted to watch it again.

this film just was so boring, had no twist to it, no story line and no creativity to it

I also liked the references from the past and present and was very entertaining.

I loved the first Lego Movie (and the game that was made out of it) - the story was funny, the characters lovable and the whole thing was entertaining.

Great animation but quite a boring script .

The film's plot is entertaining.

I thought it was fairly funny, had great voice performances, flawless animation, and a reasonably engaging story.

Waste of time .

This movie was incredibly entertaining.

Although its opening act is a little overly similar to the first film, the movie soon breaks out into a thrillingly entertaining adventure that's just as enjoyable as it is surprisingly smart and deep, once again thinking outside the box as it relates the Lego world to the real world.

Fun and Enjoyable Sequel/Toy Commercial .

Cons: the story is very basic and predictable.

Because the truth is: the first movie is still entertaining and one of the best movies to come out this decade.

Worst movie I have ever seen .

I thought the original Lego movie was a surprise package and the Lego batman movie better than many of the real life batman films but Lego 2 suffers from a dreary story that I think will bore adults.

The action sequences are very fresh, engaging and even has a little suspense to it.

I was falling asleep.

Lego Movie 2 is still a wildly creative movie - it's just lacking the sort of intriguing reveal of the first because, duh, we know a little bit about what to expect.

Lord and Miller continue their streak of inferior but enjoyable sequels.

" and were bored to tears a half hour in.

While it isn't really that hard to follow what was going on, it was pretty predictable, something the first movie made sure it wasn't.

64% - Waste of time!

The main villain isn't revealed till the last 3rd, but the twist villain idea doesn't work and the character who turns out to be the villain is not who you would expect, but very confusing.

It's boring from the beginning to the end.
