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.
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.
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.
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.
Herzlose Sketchparade. Leidlich amüsant.
If you liked the first film, you'll like the second one.
The final song of the minions was killing me. Totally hilarious.
Very entertaining, a pleasure to watch with friends and family.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I really like this as a sequel. There's good character development across the board, though I was bored by the "Dad has to protect his tween daughter from boys" schtick they had going.
I love the different sizes and shapes of the characters in these films and I laugh a lot at the dumb humour.
A lovely movie, even a bit better than the first one in my opinion. Actually no, the first one is great as well, this one is just on another level regarding the plot. Such cute characters those minions!
Although entertaining and fun, Despicable Me 2 lacks a lot of the heart and charm of the first film.
OK, I was SO lucky. I was flying from Korea (Seoul) to Los Angeles. It’s a 9-hour flight. All you can do is hope there are a few good movies that can save you from the monotony, which is long distance air travel. Well, “Despicable Me 2” happened to be one of those movies. In fact, I liked it so much that I was kinda pissed that I had seen it on a plane. It really is the worst place to see a movie (with those shitty earphones and tiny screen). Since I liked it, I promised myself I’d watch it again on a bigger screen when I had the chance and that chance is now. By the way, another…
