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.
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!
The sequel to the unexpected hit of 2010 neither diminishes in quality from the first or improves upon it. Both films have a persistent charm to them but never get around to delivering more than a few G-rated laughs, that the kids mostly enjoy but leave the adults wondering when the quirky minions will come back to the screen. This film in particular seems to be almost about nothing, a plot made so thin that the entire affair seems to feel like nothing but an 80 minute episode of an animated television series, a platform that would greatly benefit the scattered characters and room for invention within the world. The minions again steal the show, only proving more-so that perhaps they should have their own film (a project planned for the future). As for now, they will have to continue saving an otherwise monotonous franchise.
It had its touching moments and it's funny parts but ultimately it fell short of the bar set by it's predecessor. Worth a watch if the first one tickled your fancy.
Entertaining but lacking the charm that made the first film so good.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
After hearing the song Happy by Pharrell Williams over and over and over again for the past year or so, I finally got around to watch this film.
SUPER HILARIOUS. Much more hilarious than the first Despicable Me (2010). I was actually tearing up from laughter because of some scenes. I also liked how close to reality this whole movie was. From Gru trying to deal with his daughter seeing a boy to the ups and downs of being in love for the first time.
Gru (Steve Carell) is just a regular guy, trying to live his life as a single father and deviate away from his past as a villain. Then comes along Lucy (Kristen Wiig), an agent who works for the Anti-Villian League and becomes Gru's partner. Through their not-so-successful missions, they build a beautiful, fun relationship.
It was honestly just fantastic to watch. It's a great film for everyone!
Me llamo llama ding-dong! Who cares?
Lively and funny sequel, sees Carrell return as supervillain turned good, assigned to sniff out another supervillain who may be posing as a mall shopkeeper. The film depends a lot on the humour that is provided by the demented minions, but Carrell and Wiig, especially as Gruu's newfound romantic interest, excel. May be a little plotty, trying to spin many plates at once, but the end result is a cut above the usual CG animation nevertheless.
