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.
Terrible. Was there a story? Also, this movie gave us something worse than Kristen Wiig... An animated Kristen Wiig!
For a blatantly shit movie, this made me laugh far more than I was expecting.
Suffering from a lack of originality, this did what it had to do, focus more on the comedy potential of the Minions. They're the best characters and provide 90% of the laughs in this film (Carrell's Gru just isn't funny as a villainous good guy dad). But the Minions? You know what they're about, you know what they're going to do before they do it, but, they make you laugh every time.
Recommended?: for a quick, distracting 90 minutes, you could do a lot worse.
If you're looking for a review of Despicable Meat Who you've come to the wrong place.
Forgettable plot and villain. This sequel hinges on the popularity of the minions. I was hoping for more surprises.
Enjoyable and fun but, predictable.
Tsja 1 vond ik al leuk en deze is ook gewoon weer lekker om naar te kijken. Humor is goed uitgewerkt en ja...die minions...goud!
That was cute. This time, more focus on minions, but Gru's distaste for anything is still great to watch. Fun all the way.
A great movie and sequel but not as good as the first for me. Love the new addition of Wiig.
Carell definitely found a niche with animated films. He's doing a great job and I hope he continues.
great! I love these movies, especially those dang minions!
