Despicable Me 2
Back 2 Work
Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal.
Well wasn't this just a ahhe gooba chhipa hehe load of fun! My Minion isn't the best, but you get the idea. This sequel is a boundless surprise that drops the restraint of the first film and unleashes with a completely zany sense of Looney Tunes logic and Marx Brothersian(?) anarchic controlled chaos. What a joy!
This wonderfully surprising and imaginative little sequel finds our top-heavy villain Gru on the right side of the law now and on the far side of fatherhood. He's recruited by an anti-villain league to take down a criminal mastermind stationed somewhere in a supermail. This as his overbearing neighbor tries to recruit dates for the now father, he finds his own form of love,…
No point in writing a long review for this one. As with the first film I am at a loss to understand why the franchise is so popular. Sure, the Minions are sort of cute and even occasionally amusing in small doses but here they are used to get all the laughs and they quickly outstay their welcome.
Whilst I disliked the first film at least it had a proper plot whereas this is a series of thinly connected slapstick sketches that are never particularly funny. Even at just over 90-minutes the story is protracted and surprisingly dull given the larger than life characters and pratfalls. It might look slick but this is soulless, excruciatingly long and simply no fun.
Hilarious as hell thanks to total Minion madness, but also completely hollow at its core due to the absence of the very ingredient that made its predecessor an unexpected success of its year, Despicable Me 2 is an unabashedly funny ride when the screen is occupied by the little yellow henchmen but apart from that, everything about this sequel is a step down.
The follow-up to Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2 continues the journey of Gru as the ex-supervillain finds himself adjusting to a normal family life with his three daughters & is also attempting an honest living in the jam business. But when he is recruited by the Anti-Villain League for assistance in their latest investigation, his prime suspect turns…
The Good: Regular minions. Purple minions. Anything involving the minions. Heck, the only worthwhile scene in the entire movie is their cover of legendary R&B group All-4-One's immortal 'I Swear'... which one could now easily find on YouTube.
The Bad: "Hey, guys, the first one made over half a billion dollars, and now they gave us 80 mil to make another one! Alright, come on, let's come up with an even better story! So, does anyone have some great ideas? Anyone?" (silence followed by uproarious laughter) "Man, that was a good one! You're funny. It's a sequel... for a goddamn kids movie. The parents will practically throw their money at us. We don't need no fucking story."—I'm 99% sure this…
Well slap my granny and call me Nellie. This was more fun than a barrel full of minions.
Ma ma ma ma ma ma am, uh la laaaaa, potatoes lalala.
The whole gang returns for the sequel, main voice cast, directors and even the screenwriters. With that said the film has mostly the same strengths and weaknesses as the original. Gru and the minions are still the most entertaining aspect of the film, with everything else ending up a bit pale in comparison.
Writers Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul must have taken note of the criticism from the original as almost every scene has either Gru, the minions or both heavily involved. The plot this time around puts greater emphasis on them and finds better ways of integrating the minions especially in the central story.
Better then the first and with more minions. What's not to love.
Story is as generic as you'd expect but the minions are hilarious.
I guess it all comes down to whether Minions are your thing or not. If I could only stop thinking of them as banana tic-tacs. Great use of 3D, great design, and Russell Brand voicing Dr. Nefario are the highlights, so much so that I think he's probably just as worthy of a spin-off as his little yellow friends.
I am nowhere close to the target demographic of this movie, and I loved it. Well animated with lots of heart and lots of laughs. Parents and kids should both have a blast.
I loved this more than the first fim
Not much to say about this - it was on Netflix, so I stuck it on in the background when I needed something I wouldn't have to concentrate on (as I often do). Considering that I haven't seen the first one, and am as baffled as the next person by the seemingly endless popularity of the Minions, I found it perfectly enjoyable - pretty charming, really.
Jo meir eg ser av minion-folket, jo mindre likar eg dei. Å, dei er umorsomme. Gru er ein dårlig karakter. Korfor er ho dama så tynn? Filmen har eit sjukt syn på haiar. Og våpen, korfor så mange våpen? Eg håpar trenden med at alt må vere så "awesome" forsvinner snart!
- Yup, just as average as the first. Maybe i'm just a spoil sport, but i'm sorry, i just don't get it.
I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
