The first Despicable Me film is one of my personal favorite animated movies, Despicable Me 2 and Minions however were disappointing. I’m noticing now that each movie has to do with Gru’s relationship with a different family member. The first one was about his relationship between him and his daughters Margo, Edith (my favorite), and Agnes. The second one was about him and his wife, and now this one is about him and his twin brother.
Well I can’t do a review of a Despicable Me movie unless I mention the mutated cheese puffs.The minions are ok in this one. They not that intricate to the story unlike Despicable Me 2. There funny at times but can get annoying too. Gru’s twin brother Dru is also just ok too. While he is annoying he’s not as annoying as it could’ve been. I do feel like I relate to Dru while my brother relates to Gru more.
The best thing about this movie is the villain. First off, Trey Parker the co-creator and voice of half the cast of South Park in a kids movies?! The design, the way he moves, and his accent make him very fun to watch. Though it’s odd hearing Trey Parker without other South Park co-creator Matt Stone.
The movie has problems. A big one is the all is lost moment. Dru get’s mad at Gru for deciding to return the diamond they stole from Bratt. The next scene is Gru about to leave when he finds out that Bratt was disguised as Lucy and kidnapped the girls. Gru then goes back to Dru, apologizes and go save the girls. It happens too fast and doesn’t leave much to feel for them. Another problem is had was that the movie gets rid of Dr. Nefario. It’s not like in Toy Story 3 where Bo Peep was mention to have been sold and its sad, this one just felt like it was used for a gag and not a funny one either.
Despicable Me 3 is better then 2 and Minions but not as good as the first one.
-Rushed all is lost moment
-No Dr. Nefario
