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.
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.
Fun sequel which sees Gru recruited to join the Anti-Villain League to defeat the evil Eduardo.
As with the original movie, the minions are the stars of the show.
Consistently funny throughout, this is despicably good.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Hola, los minions perdieron la gracia en la primera película. Esto era innecesario, adiós.
I hate those Minions! They were good for a few laughs in the first movie, but now they got just annoying. And the rest of the movie? Well, i fell asleep twice, so i guess it isn't that good either..
Definitely some enjoyable moments in this sequel. In fact it is likely close to on par with the wit of the original. The digital animation is spot on as usual from the newest crop of digitally animated films.
Despicable Me 2's outcome is sure considering the emphasis early on. Nothing about the way DM2 plays out is a surprise.And nothing about DM2 particularly raises the bar from the first one.
Yet it still manages to be a fun, engaging movie thanks to the presence of Kristen Wiig. While her character (the redheaded Lucy) is a necessary placement considering the granted outcome of the movie, Wiig gives her a delightful personality--someone that the audience likes to see on screen. She reminds me a bit of a more fleshed out young Lucille Krunklehorn (Meet the Robinsons).
Lucy plays off Gru very well, both as a partner in crime (well, anti-crime) and as a partner. Wrap in Gru's adorable children doing adorable children things, a host of minions doing, well, miniony things, and a bevy of amusing side characters, and DM2 becomes a movie that is hard to hate.
I really liked the first film. I was disappointed by this one. It just wasn't that appealing to be honest. I did like the minions but that was about it. It has some nice moments but overall it was disappointing.
"It's like, y'know, for kids," exclaimed Norville Barnes whilst energetically demonstrating the Hula Hoop to a panel of bemused businessmen in the Coen brothers' brilliant 'The Hudsucker Proxy'. Tenuously speaking one could once say the same for family films. Except nowadays, they're no longer just "for kids". Audiences have become more discerning and cultured, the rise of the meta- monster demands more knowing and sophisticated entertainment, and anything that will appeal to as wide an audience as possible, inclusive of adults as well as children, will cause film producer's eyes to morph into dollar signs as their salivating tongues loll in the jetstreams caused whilst flying their gold-plated private planes.
Despite a few flashes throughout the decades (Disney's 'The Lion…
