Movie Review: Despicable Me 2


Title: Despicable Me 2
Language: English
Genre: Animation / Comedy
Running Time: 98 Minute

Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal. While in search of his inner self for excitement Gru encounters even more life changing moments assisted by his 10,400 minions.

What do I think about it:-
The Sequel comes withint expectations of a forceful and unsurprising storyline, children don't care plot holes and unnatural humor ( minus the nonsense filled minions) .

The film now wreaks of foul play to further milk a franchise that built itself coincidentally by the sheer numbers of it's surprisingly cute and funny minion characters. Other than that, you have nothing much to see or feel. 

Being despicable myself, think about this... whenever the minions are off screen you immediately await the next minion appearance and that shows just how shallow is the film, because everything else is either unpresented well or they just couldn't care.

It feels like the entire team were just sitting there trying to make minions funny and to be frank, they weren't as funny as I would expect them to be. just repetitive stunts. So now what? 

Nothing to shout about the 3D, nothing to memorable about any other characters (besides el machos "chuck norris" like past which they nv bother to explain why he wanted to fake his death as well making him the most irrelevant protagonist in the animation world ), even the kids lost most of their charm.

Despicable Me 2 is one of those money milking sequels that have practically the whole world of children and adults alike following behind buying merchandise after merchandise.

If you are going to be all "Despicable me 2 was awesome, minions are so crazy cute I WANT ONE" then you will be thrilled to know that there will be a spin-off movie titled Minions in 2014. 

*yay -_-*

Ratings: 1/5- Don't get me wrong, i like the minions too but they disappointed me here and don't even think of judging me by saying my expectations are too high because if you are gonna milk money from the minions then you better do a darn good job in it!

I dunno.. but I've never understood why this is such a craze. I can never tell if they are potatoes or bananas or even aliens. And I dont even find them cute >_<

It wasn’t as great as the previous ones. But, my kids liked every bit of it. It was a one-time watch and so I am happy I took my kids for this movie. Anyway, it was a very nice review and I am sure will be helpful to people, who haven’t seen it yet. I was just looking for some Andy Yeatman shows online and this post was a good distraction.
