Minions: The Rise of Gru (2022)

“Did you just trade my future for a PET ROCK? ” – Gru

Number of Times Seen – 1 (30 Jun 2022)

Brief Synopsis – A 12 year old dreams of becoming the worlds greatest villain.

My Take on it – Fun look at how a child could dream of becoming a super villain. After having seen the other films in the series, it makes sense that they would give us a prequel like this which allows things to be seen from a villainous child’s perspective.  Anyone familiar with the series, knows that he isn’t pure evil, yet still has the desire to conquer the world. As always, great voice cast led by Carrell helps keep things entertaining, but the story itself feels a bit too bland especially given the fact that they could have done so much more with this kind of origin story.  That being said, it’s still a fine addition to this canon.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – This is the longest-advertised animated film in motion picture history, due to a nearly 2½-year gap between its first trailer and its official release. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
