It's been five years since we last saw Emmett, Lucy, Benny the space guy and their pals from "The Lego Movie," and time has not been kind to the citizens of Bricksburg.

An invasion of alien Duplo creatures has devastated their city, leaving a Mad Max-like wasteland of pop culture references, a dark and brooding Batman and, as always, wild Lego creations. So when aliens invade again in "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part," the stage is set for Emmet and his friends to launch on a space adventure that's as full of madcap antics as it is Lego product placements.

There is a bonkers joy to "The Lego Movie 2." Directed by Mike Mitchell and written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (who penned the original), the film returns to Bricksburg (now Apocalypseburg) to find Emmet (Chris Pratt) and Lucy/Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks) trying to eek out a living in the ruins of their once-fair city as Batman (Arnett again) keeps watch. Benny the 1980s space guy (Charlie Day) has a robot arm now. He runs a chop shop for "custom battle vehicles."
