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…
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.
Well slap my granny and call me Nellie. This was more fun than a barrel full of minions.
Not as good as the first, however still entertaining, and Gru pulled.
It is a amazing movie. I liked it a lot. Fun to watch and enjoy. As compared to its first part, the second part is more amazing. It has shown the changed attitude of Gru. He is still a amazing villein but with a soft corner for children's. The minions are cutest and adorable. Those guys make the movies excellent. The purple color for the evil minions are also good, but the yellow color suits better :) Very funny and enjoyable as the first one. The action is great. Doctor's bike is amazing. The way he starts after the send off that is the most amazing thing. The detective version of Gru is amazing. Gru has become an amazing, caring father in this part. Finally he gets the mother for his children's.
Another really fun family film.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I love this movie. El Macho was hysterical. Riding a shark with a bomb strapped on it's back into a volcano is everything. Come on.
Gru and the gang are back, working for the good guys now but not completely reformed. The minions are still cute, still semi stupid, and still getting into trouble. Joining the group is Lucy as Gru's partner. It's that old 'aren't you annoying but I kinda like you' gag. Along the way in this new adventure Margo gets a crush, undercover mall stuff, underwater headquarters, sharks, minions go missing, Dr. Nefario quits, evil minions, Gru dating and much much more.
The Despicable Me franchise really has really grown on me. I wasn't much of a…
Extrem stumpfsinniges Familienkino, bei dem man ob der Dumpfheit irgendwann einfach lachen muss, bevor einem der Kopf platzt bei soviel Absurdität und Unsinn. Naja und Minions, die muss man einfach mögen, oder?
Someone asked me to babysit for the first time in like 20yrs, and this is what the kid picked out.
Aside from Gru, and the little girl who dresses like a ninja, I don't really understand how this is as well received as it is. Its just tireless fat jokes and plot holes and the "adult" jokes aren't cleverly masked, and the story is just... ugh.
I mean, they were supposed to deliver cupcakes for the guys cinco de mayo party and at first i was mad that he didnt pre pay for that order, then i was mad they didnt even make the order. who even set up that cupcake shop? who made the cupcakes that were already there? what voice did steve coogan do, exactly?
i like that the twinkies are all cross dressers i guess.
And today on the This Movie Isn't Funny Anymore Show, we have Despicable Me 2. I remember really enjoying this movie when it first came out, and I can't, for the life of me, figure out why. The minions are worse than I remember, Gru's character is just lowest-common-denominator comedy, and even the kids aren't really that cute anymore. I just wanted this film to be over as I watched it. I recently watched Despicable Me recently and that film definitely held up. This one is quite obviously the precursor to the abysmal Minions. It had a few enjoyable spots, but for the most part, it was just inane.
It is okay. Not as funny as the first one, but a decent sequel.
Just as good as the first, Despicable Me 2 is perfect family entertainment, with huge laughs, great animation, and heart and charm to spare.
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
