Despicable Me 2 (2013)

despicable me 2“Eat jelly, you purple freaks!” – Agnes

Number of Times Seen – 1 (25 Feb 2014)

Brief Synopsis – The loveable former villain Gru, now a loving father is recruited to be a secret agent to catch a new Super Criminal

My Take on it – As anyone who has read my review of the original Despicable Me (2010), it is no secret that I wasn’t the biggest fan of it.

To me, this movie suffers the same fate.

I have trouble liking any of the characters and the way the characters are drawn really irks me.

The story here wasn’t so memorable to me and I have even avoided watching this one for months because I try not to watch movies I think I won’t like.

That being said, there are a bunch of humorous lines in this one that had me chuckle, but there wasn’t anything that caused uncontrollable laughter.

I think the best characters in this movie are the Minions and if rumors are true, there will be a movie about them coming out in 2015, so hopefully I’ll like that one.

The musical parody numbers they do here were pretty funny.

Bottom Line – Not the biggest fan of this one. Some funny lines, but I just can’t connect with the characters.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy

  1. It is certainly hard to connect with the characters. The humor is enough to make this watchable, but it never transcends that label to be become something better than that.

    I guess that means we agree. 🙂
