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…
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.
Sequel focus way too much on the minions that weren't really that funny in the first place.
The ridiculousness of the plot is possibly even worse than the first film, but the minions are just as funny and the character development is admirable for a kid's movie.
Not much of a plot here, but that was OK. The minions really work in their short little Keatonesque scenes and the score by Pharrell shines.
Up there with the first Despicable Me. I really enjoyed this one. Beautiful animations and decent sound. Has its moments for kids and a little adult humor as well. Highly recommend.

I don't get the minion craze at all. I personally don't think they're that funny. I liked the first Despicable Me, and I found it quite funny, but the sequel is not as good and not as funny. Mediocre.
Just as good as the first film in my in my opinion.
Gru is now fighting for the side of relative good, so shouldn't this be, like, "Amiable Me" now? He was so despicable in the last film that I can't see him being a whole lot better; and it doesn't help that a single parent of three daughters isn't exactly an icon of chilled-out. He's trying to go legit with some sort of jam business these days, yet the sort of supervillain who would retire to that position is still the choice consultant for an organization combatting supervillains. Parenting must be pretty boring for Gru to boast about protecting his children, and then deciding to join some sort of justice league in order to snitch out his knowledge about supervillains. He…
Much like its stand out song, this movie makes me happy
