The sequel to the 2014 blockbuster, 'The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part' retains its unique sense of humour. The film reunites the heroes of Bricksburg to fight against alien invaders in this action-packed adventure drama.

It ’s been few years since Emmet (Pratt) and his comrades Wlydstyle (Banks), Batman (Arnett), Unikitty (Brie), Metalbeard (Offerman) and Benny (Day) saved their town. The film picks up from where the original film left off — a new threat from another universe now terrifies the citizens of Bricksburg. Emmet’s friends have been abducted by alien forces and he needs to find a way to restore peace and make everything hunky-dory again.



The film keeps its graphic style and is heart-warming to the core. The sequel has raised the bar and is faster and packed with more fun and action. Writers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who also penned the first Lego Movie, have maintained the franchise’s novelty. With a fun narrative and clever execution, the film is fuelled with adrenaline. The writing caters to grownups and the content is fresh. While Pratt works his charm and lends his voice to two characters, Arnett and Banks pack a punch. The foot-tapping music will keep you in the groove.

The makers maintain the uniqueness of the film, leaving a lot of scope for another sequel. Don’t step out till you are done watching the end-credits — you don’t want to miss out on the extra fun.
