Movie Review – Despicable Me 2

Hi folks, it’s movies time!!

A few days ago I decided to re-watch Despicable Me 2 because it was being recommended for me by Netflix. I love animation and as the new movie about the Minions just came out, I thought it would be a very good way to finish my day.

So, in this sequence from Despicable Me, we have a former villain, Gru, trying to adapt to his new life as a single parent of 3 girls. Along with his Minions, Gru cooks, educates, plays, and dresses like a princess in order to please Agnes, Margot and Edith.


Although Gru isn’t a bad guy anymore, others are taking his place and because of that the AVL, Anti-Villain League, comes to light. The AVL is a top-secret organization that is dedicated to combating super-villain activity. And impressed by the action of an unknown villain, the league ask Gru’s help to catch this bad guy.

Homesick for his action-packed life, with a lot of guns and experiments and inventions, Gru decides to help the AVL. With this decision he also gains a partner, Lucy Wilde, a very curious woman that will give you plenty of laughs.


And of course,  we can’t forget the Minions! Again, with their yellow colour, their strange language, different costumes and dances, they provide the best moments of the movie and also the success on Gru’s mission.

Personal opinion: Well what can I say… I love animation! And I loved the first Despicable Me. And I was pretty sure that with this sequences would be not different. This is a film for the whole family: there is action, there is love, there is comedy! One more time the Minions were responsible of natural laughs even more because of some new costumes that the used in this film, like the maid costume. So cute and so funny! I’m anxious to watch the movie dedicated to them… I already had a great time watching the trailer.

So, if you want to spend some time with some funny stuff, Despicable Me 2 is a great option. (ps: I totally recommend you to watch Despicable Me first, because you will get the sequence story more easily 😉 )


To hell with that childlike sense-of-wonder crap: Despicable Me, instead of trying to return adults to a false state of innocence, reminds us that we all started out as ill-mannered little savages.”Movieline Stephanie Zacharek
