This review of the movie contains the following information:
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is the sequel to the original 2014 film The Lego Movie. Five years after the events of the first movie, the persistently cheerful Emmet (voiced by Chris Pratt) and his brooding best friend Lucy/Wyldstyle (voiced by Elizabeth Banks) are stuck in an apocalyptic city after the attacks of the cute Duplo alien invaders. Without warning, a new masked alien called General Mayhem (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz) arrives. She kidnaps Batman (voiced by Will Arnett), Metalbeard the Pirate (voiced by Nick Offerman), Unikitty (voiced by Alison Brie), Benny the Astronaut (voiced by Charlie Day), and Lucy/Wyldstyle. The five friends are whisked away to the Sis-star system to participate in a matrimonial ceremony for the suspiciously generous Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi (voiced by Tiffany Haddish), who seems hell bent on brainwashing them into cutesy zombies. Emmet decides that he must find a way to save them, and with the help of the super cool Rex Dangervest (voiced by Chris Pratt), he comes up with a plan to stop the Queen before it’s too late.

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
