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.
I think the littlest girl's voice is annoying.
Don't watch this movie 3 times in the theatre
5/10: Wonderfully enjoyable yet totally forgettable animation. Having said that, I still like some of the innovative ideas used in the story. It will be fun and cute for the children but not for adults. I highly recommend to watch Megamind (2010) instead for its similar "theme" story.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Aww man. Sequel fear has come crashing back to me once again in a tsunami of disappointment at Despicable Me 2. I knew this would happen.
The film is obviously a follow up to the tremendous original film in following the exploits of Gru, his three little girls, Dr Nefario and their wonderful troupe of minions that squeal and speak gibberish at every little event. This time round, it's Gru's turn to fight against the evil villains being targeted by the Anti-Villain League after a secret serum was stolen. This of course leads to Gru and his minions getting into all kinds of adventures and mishaps throughout but ultimately ending on a happy note to nail the feel good film…
8/10: Hilarious! I rate this even higher than its predecessor. Go watch it!
My review -- this film is now showing at Hollywood cinema Norwich UK and it is currently doing incredibly well at the box office. The contents well we meet our main character Gru as he is getting more settled into a normal life with his three children, but now and again he yearns for his old lifestyle just to create instruments of a very high technological standard. Luckily for Gru unknown to him a Secret Service organization needs his assistance on a top-secret mission. The tempo is nicely spaced out for its timeframe of roughly 100 minutes and it will not become boring for your younger members of your family, simply because there is always something happening on the big…
It's not bad but not nearly as good as the first one. It has too much focus on the minions and not enough on the little girls also too much of the events are show thru montage.
Finally I had a chance to see this 3D computer-animated comedy and the sequel to the 2010 animation Despicable Me. The same team is back and this one was also directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, and written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. For the record: this is the first film by Illumination Entertainment to be a sequel! Familiar voices of Steve Carell, Russell Brand, and Miranda Cosgrove reprise their roles. Kristen Wiig, who played Miss Hattie in the first film, voices agent Lucy Wilde. Ken Jeong, who played the Talk Show Host, voices Floyd Eagle-san. New cast members include Benjamin Bratt as Eduardo (aka El Macho) and Steve Coogan as Silas Ramsbottom, head of the Anti-Villain League…
