I admit that I’m not really partial to kiddie movies. But, “Despicable Me” and its sequel are two that I rather enjoyed. Oh, yes. It’s mainly silly stuff for the toddlers. But, you’ve got to admit those minions who work for the ex-super villain, Gru,” are fast, fun and unpredictable.
“Despicable Me 2″ is just crammed with minions. And, they’re key to the story which involves taking over the world again. But, this time, Gru (voiced by Steve Carrell) is the good guy and working for the Anti Villain agency or something like that. Gru suspects that a mega villain from the past may be responsible for the theft of a new chemical that changes little bunny rabbits into evil purple monster things. It’s all good fun. If you have kids…they’ll squeal. And, even adults will like the minions and the 3D effects. Grade: B
