FuzzyTagz If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
Curapedi I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
amarjunchu I liked El Macho character but still the first movie was about stealing the moon while here its just cliche spy, romance, super hero stuff and those were the parts which just werent that good for me while still this movie is good due to all the minion antics and a little bit of family drama sweetness thrown in for good measure but do not expect it to be better than the first film. I hope in the third one they will show some huge stealing or some awesome super villain stuff.
Pjtaylor-96-138044 Again, 'Despicable Me 2 (2013)' is a very passive experience that fails to engage on almost any level. This time, though, there's this odd, almost meta-textual edge which has the feature fully embrace its animated format to the point where characters will just break-out into dance, or even song at some points, while strangely leering at the camera. The plasticity has also been at least doubled so that people will flail about all over the shop and take ludicrous amounts of bodily-harm without so much as a scratch. All this adds up to this bizarre combination that makes it feel much more like a self-aware cartoon than a proper computer-generated film. What doesn't help its credibility either, is that the central character's arc has been entirely excised and almost all development gutted from the feature, leading to a series of skits featuring nothing but caricatures in slap-stick situations desperate to make small children chuckle. The movie skews very young throughout, with only one or two jokes that made me laugh, and yet it still passes the time as adequately as the first even though it isn't as competent in terms of its story. Its a different beast, one that isn't as mature or even quite as competent, but it is still just as decent because it is almost exactly as passive an experience. 5/10
swilliky The silly animated film spawned a comedic sequel that pretty much lives up to the original. Gru (Steve Carell) has given up his life as a villain to be a father to his three adopted daughters. He pursues a career producing jams and jellies but Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) wants to go back to a career of evil. Agnes (Elsie Fisher) prepares for a mother's day presentation but realizes she doesn't have a mother. Both Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) and Edith (Dana Gaier) think Gru should go out on a date. When a research facility is stolen, the Anti- Villain League sends Lucy (Kristen Wiig) to capture Gru and recruit him to stop this new menace. The Minions also start to go missing as someone is kidnapping them too. The leader of the AVF, Silas Ramsbottom (Steve Coogan) traces the source of the new villain to the mall and assigns Lucy to work with Gru. Using the cover of a cupcake store, Gru and Lucy investigate the other vendors including Eduardo (Benjamin Bratt) who Gru recognizes as the former villain El Macho. Gru and Lucy grow closer as they investigate the mall and Margo has a crush on Eduardo's son Antonio (Moises Arias). The captured Minions are all on an island where they can play and party. Lucy helps Gru out of a terrible date making Gru really happy and cueing the catchy Pharell song. The AVF thinks that the villain is the wig maker Floyd (Ken Jeong) and ends the operation.Check out more of this review and others at
classicsoncall Having landed father Gru in the first movie, Margo, Edith and Agnes are hot on the trail of hooking him up with a potential Mom. This picture also added more Minions to the mix for which I was grateful, those little cornballs are very funny with their own brand of minionese. When not saving the world or freeing Margo from the clutches of the smooth Antonio, son of El Macho, Gru is an absolute sketch attempting to make that first phone call date with Lucy, the gal he has eyes for. What shy guy can't relate to Gru's nervous trepidation trying to come up with the right words? Hilarious. Well, it all works out, with the Minions getting their share of quality time, even if they had to go purple for a while. It's a fun film that kids of all ages should enjoy.
