THE UNIVERSE IS EXPANDING.
Big changes are coming in the Lego universe, as Duplo invaders keep terrorizing Bricksburg; Emmett and Lucy will face the Queen behind it all. An intense 3D sequel that can’t quite deliver the freshness of the original, but still makes an attempt to throw every clever idea and pop culture reference they can come up with in our direction. Tons of jokes for adults; kids won’t get half of it, but there are still enough engaging adventures and slapstick for them, as well as ingenious ways to show and disarm the age difference in playing with either Duplo or Lego.
