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.
"Just because everybody hates it doesn't mean it's not good"
Immer noch gut, aber etwas schwächer als der grandiose erste Teil.
Well, I gave it another shot, and I still just don't get the popularity of the Despicable Me movies. The second film cuts back on (but doesn't eliminate) the saccharine schmaltz involving Gru's adopted daughters, but it doesn't cut back on the forced humor, overstuffed animation, or, worst of all, the f$@*&ing minions. I really cannot overstate how irritating those walking, jabbering twinkies are.
This time around, reformed Gru is conscripted by the Anti-Villain League (which didn't exist in the last film) to stop a mysterious new villain who's stolen a potion that mutates anyone who drinks it. That, at least, is the nominal plot of the film, but the movie hardly seems to care about it. No, what the…
Despicable Me 2 is just about as funny as the original, very very close but not quite. I laughed plenty during this gleeful animated adventure, though not as often or uproariously as I did during the first Despicable Me.
These movies are so well crafted.... great animation and art, very entertaining and funny script... the dialogue and visuals are loaded with little "in-jokes" for the grown-ups who are watching. Like in this one.... the reference to the bartender Isaac from Love Boat? Heehee!
Despicable Me 2 is a fun movie, no doubt about it, and nothing to complain about at all. Colourful and crazy, just what Dr. Nefario ordered.
Not quite as funny as the first one, and the plot is a tad messy, but still pretty great, with some nicely interesting characters.
Still funny and worth a second viewing if only to discover some more details!
Miéh. Gru, mi villano favorito 2 (como la renombraron en España) me mantuvo más o menos entretenido y tiene algunas buenas ideas (algunas de las líneas y el contexto del villano principal son bastante buenas, por ejemplo) pero en general parece tratar a los niños espectadores como si fueran imbéciles, con una trama romántica que no termina de arrancar (y en la que te recuerdan a cada momento lo solo que se siente el señor este y lo enamorada que está la agente secreta esta) y hordas y hordas de minions protagonizando coñas fáciles (no todas espantosas, ojo, recuerdo un par de chistes en los que sí sonreí, pero en general los bichos esos son más enervantes que otra cosa,…
despicable of me 2 think the second one would be good.
The Despicable Me 2 sequel comes off as a bit of a step down from the first film, as while I think the first one was fairly open with how it could go (although not entirely unpredictable) I feel like this one set up very early on not just the events that would happen, but also how they'd happen and the exact scenes to expect later. I think the minions also got overused a little bit, as I don't think they can carry a story fully and it's a bit tenuous to try to shift too much of the focus to them.
That said, the film does have some good moments to it, but I think too much of it…
