THE LEGO MOVIE 2 : THE SECOND PART (2019)
Everything is not awesome, at least it wasn't as awesome as the first movie although it is still entertaining. Picking up the story from where the first movie left us, Bricksburg has been destroyed and 5 years later, from what's left of it is Apocalypseburg where every citizen must getting tougher after series of alien attacks. When another alien attacks come and abduct five of its citizen including Lucy, Emmet know that he must do something to save the people that he love.
Even though the sequel still have their original cast along with some big names addition such as Tiffanny Hadish and Maya Rudolph, this movie fails to shine comparing to the first movie. There is no 'catchy song' such as Everything is Awesome in the first movie, instead they created a bunch of song which cannot stuck inside my head and not as awesome as the original song from the first movie. The story twist itself is pretty good, comes also with a good morale lesson, but how they build the storyline is pretty basic for me and nothing new.
Overall, The Lego Movie 2 The Second Part is still an entertaining movie, at least the effects are still awesome. But the story and especially the song, definitely not as awesome as the first one. And even though it is still early to presume, but if the first movie didn't nominated as Best Animated Feature back in 2015, I can't guarantee that this sequel will get the nomination, especially since knowing Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2 will be released this year.
Score : 3.5 / 5 stars
