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.
A far better pacing than many films targeted at children, and even bearing a single laugh out loud moment, but it also hits just about every beat I hate about these types of movies. Including but not limited to: Inverse Ninja Law, multiple fart jokes, love at first sight, and characters going out on a musical number because the writers couldn't think of how to script an ending.
Sweet and cute.

Despicably average. There's some cute stuff, as ever, but kids make for easy emotions. It feels far less focused than the original, with Gru's good guy side being less engaging than his Oedipal villainy. And almost any sense of spontaneity and invention is lost, with the Minions wearing out their welcome and the big set pieces just lacking real stakes and wit to involve us. Fewer laughs, fewer warm-n-fuzzies. Maybe it plays better with the wee ones.
The final obstacle wasn't much of a challenge but as usual it's adorable, beautiful and bloody hilarious.
Fun sequel to the original with both slapstick and touching family scenes (okay, a bit heavier on the slapstick side).
I very much like the new character Lucy and the minions are always fun, of course, but would have loved to see more of the girls in this one.
Another mildly amusing, but forgettable effort in this franchise and from Illumination Entertainment in general. While it expands on the universe of the original with more secret organizations and a love interest for Gru, this sequel still suffers from the same lack of creative spark of the first film. The same banal character designs, grating supporting voice cast and underdeveloped gags persist, never allowing the film to really go beyond the "cute" factor of the first film. There's still a solid chemistry between Carell and the child actors & some of the action sequences are elaborate enough to be entertaining, but the lack of any sort of evolution in style or story keeps it from leaving my memory. Still, at least it isn't The Lorax.
it was very funy
Whether you enjoyed Despicable Me or not, it is clear from the outset that this is a heavily manufactured product. Small, silly-voiced creatures for Lemming-like comedic effect; a villain clutz at the centre of a story with imitatable foreign-accent and finally, to top it off, three “leedle” girls – including a wide-eyed cute one that proved you had a heart of stone if you didn’t think she was adorable. Despite these animated film cliches, Despicable Me was touching in the depiction of adpoted children teaching a Father how to be a better role model. A role model that, in turn, impacted on the “minions” themselves. Released in 2010, Despicable Me capitalised on the “new” 3D trend and included multiple exciting…
