The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Lets just get something straight right from the start:  this movie isn’t anywhere near as good as the first one.   And that’s ok – the first one was really so fantastic and completely unexpected that it would be nearly impossible to match it.  Part of the problem is that the movie starts really slow (so slow that I took a 20 minute nap in the comfortable reclining chairs at the local theater.  It was glorious).  It also wasn’t hard to see certain story points coming if you paid attention even a little bit (and saw the first movie).  By the end it really did bring things around in a satisfying way and overall it was pretty good.  After all, it’s hard to mess this up as the jokes pretty much write themselves.  Throw in a few (awesome) cameos and some references for the adults and everyone goes home happy.
