• The plot’s serviceable at best, never as smart as a Pixar offering, or even a Despicable Me film. But it’s consistently goofy, and coasts along on the strength of its frenetic action and slapstick humor. Directors Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin recognize that it’s these banana-loving, gibberish-spouting Minions themselves that are the biggest draw of this film, and they mine laughs from their nonsensical singing and childish shenanigans.

    At 91 minutes, these tiny yellow blobs steal the show from their human counterparts. With charming elements galore, adorable gibberish talk and winsome screen presence, the film is cuteness overload.

    Here’s a film that won’t fail, but it won’t be one of the best animation films this year either. Your kids and you will probably watch it all of once and then move on to the merchandise. Yeah, that’s it. I can’t imagine revisiting this film. And that’s really disappointing for a film that should’ve had world do-minion on its agenda.

  • But what got us the most was the stunning voiceover performance from Sandra Bullock. Despite being a definite far cry from her usual films and roles, Bullock does a good job with Scarlett, bringing a human dimension to an animated character. With notable references to pop culture and conspiracy theories thrown in among the gags, MINIONS is a treat for both the adults and kids.

    Minions works because there is enough slapstick comedy to entertain the kids and lots of cultural references to keep the adults amused. The emotions maybe a little less but the laughs are few more. The central characters help the film sail through, they are clumsy and silly but in a smart way.

  • The element of surprise is gone, but there sure is fun in the familiarity. There’s only so many times you’ll giggle at the Minions cutely saying ‘banana’. Ultimately it’s harmless fun, and the kids will surely enjoy it, so it becomes an easy watch and an even easier recommendation.

    Overall, directors Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, have ensured that Minions have all the elements and star power to be a great family entertainer.
