Despicable Me 2 Reviews


There's nothing wildly original here in terms of set ups or plot points, but Carell and Wiig have a winning chemistry, and the Minions - like the penguins in the 'Madagascar' movies, and Scrat in the 'Ice Age' films - steal the film from right under the nose of its protagonists.

Despicable Me 2 may not be as clever or as good a story as the its predecessor, but it’s just so darn cute that you’ll spend all 98 minutes (plus intermission) grinning delightedly.

Despicable Me 2 is heartwarmingly entertaining just like its prequel, if not better. More than anything else, the story has a heart. With the world getting cynical by the day, the film provides that much needed sense of goodness.

Unlike other sequels which try to make the franchise into a money making enterprise, this one actually has a damn good story to tell.

    Despicable Me 2. After the high popularity of wonderful Despicable Me, it was expected that they will push the envelope again but disappointing that sequel was written and directed just to cash in the charm of original's characters and lovely minions. After Gru has turned good, writers just do not know what he shall do. New villain and side characters are so one dimensional and boring. Only real fun you have is from minions. It just lacked the sharpness of original. If you haven't seen the original, you might like it but for who have seen the original and adore it are just going to feel that huge potential was wasted. I am going with generous 7 out of 10 for Despicable Me 2. It's not great fun like the original but not a complete let down either.
