Have you seen the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part?
With one of our kids still a HUGE Lego fan, there was no missing this movie! We saw it a couple weeks ago at the local movie theater. It’s still playing at one last theater where I live and is now out on DVD/Blue-Ray.
Our family includes 2 adults, 10 yo, 8 yo, and 7 yo. Our 7 yo plays constantly with Legos. This morning he showed up to breakfast with his latest creation – a flying machine piloted by a crab. I asked, “What’s that on the crab?” It was similar to a scuba diver’s air tank but this one was so the crab could breath without trouble out of water. Inventive for sure!
Here’s what to expect for this movie… laughing – a lot!
My husband and I are in our 40s and laughed a lot. It’s not just a movie for kids. Some of the humor was just silliness and some of it adults would understand a bit more.
The movie is also great about teaching kids to love their siblings.
The movie starts off where the last one ended. The funky Duplo Legos have invaded the city and starts destroying the place. Turning Bricksburg into Apocalypseburg.
As you might have guessed this is mirroring “real life” where the little sister is destroying the Lego city. She takes some for herself and is trying to play with big brother with her Duplo bricks. The brother is not so happy.
This reminds me of our own train table that my husband made. Our oldest was around 3 and our little girl was around 1 year old. He loved playing with Thomas the Train and building elaborate track systems on the table. Our little girl just wanted to play like big brother. Instead, being only 1 year old, she was like Godzilla and would obliterate the place. We used to nickname her Babyzilla. She would smile and clap as she “helped” her brother. He was like village citizens yelling and trying to save what he could. Oh, it was a site. Luckily, they get along now days and he is very protective of her.
Ok, so back to The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part review. The main characters try to stop the entire Duplo group to save the city but soon come to learn obliterating the Duplos would mean the end of Legos forever.(aka The mom threatens to put all the Legos in a plastic bin and store them in the garage.)
I don’t want to totally giveaway the ending but liked in the end how the brother and sister are friends again and learn how to get along.
Would I recommend this movie?
Most definitely! If you liked the first one, you’ll like this one. I was actually rooting for Emmett so much in one scene I was on the edge of my seat trying to help him up. (You’ll know when you see it.) I liked how it had lots of silliness and funny stuff that grown ups would crack up at. I highly recommend it!
