The Lego Movie 2: the Second Part

10:30am

Common Sense Media says, "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is the sequel to 2014's hit The Lego Movie. Like the original, it's a funny, entertaining adventure that centers on Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) and Lucy/Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks). This time around, they're defending themselves from mysterious invaders who seem bent on destroying Bricksburg....So you can expect lots of action, including chases, fights, rescues, explosions, weapon use, dinosaurs, spaceship battles, and more!" You can read their full review here.
