The LEGO Movie 2
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, The LEGO® Movie 2, reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city.
Kids Movie Review: The LEGO Movie 2 by Amy who is 10 years old:
“Lego Movie 2 is a funny movie that the whole family will enjoy. Everybody in Bricksburg has found new enemies… Lego Duplo who are destroying everything they have built and created. Emmet had a dream about Bigmamagetin at the start of the movie and later Emmet played by Chris Prat goes on a mission when Lucy, Batman, Unikitty, Benny and Metalbeard get captured by sweet mayhem. Emmet meets Rex Dangervest on his way through the staircase. Watch the Lego Movie 2 to find out who sweet mayhem is who Rex dangervest really is and to discover why sweet mayhem captured them.
The movie is sure to keep you entertained and hanging of the edge of your seat. I loved it and so did my sister (who is 8 years old) and it will be a bang when released to the public“
