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.
La misma cosa de siempre, pero con el toque jocoso que le dan los minions.
Watched this with Nikki, John, and Karla at Karla's house. It was a good crowd with whom to watch "Despicable Me 2." They appreciated the film more than I would have on my own, which rubbed off in a good way. Maybe I'm just a grouch.
Despicable Me 2 reaches for its predecessor's heights of humor and heart, and while it does get close, it's not close enough.
not as good as the 1st one but still cute and funny
yea have to love the minions
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Disposable. Doesn't quite reach the same crazy/charming/moon-stealing heights of the orig. Still adorable, too bad it's no longer despicable.
Just like the first film, Despicable Me 2 works really well as a comedy by offering plenty of good laughs and also as a sweet and lovely family film. It’s simply impossible not to feel joy or pleasure while watching these movies. It has fun characters, a predictable but solid storyline, and tons of good gags that don’t feel contrived but actually necessary to the story, and well, they are funny which in the end is what matters the most. Needless to say that the animation was dazzling and even better was the voice acting. Steve Carell’s voice acting work as Gru is simply the work of a genius.
This movie is a fine example of the fact that repeating…
A sequel that should never have happened. Doesn't even hold a candle to the original.
