It’s almost close to impossible to hold back a smile when one or all of the minions pop up, they shine like little diamonds in the darkened sky every time, delivering a laughter to the whole family. Sadly, they didn’t bring home the gold in the third Despicable Me film.
I can’t figure out if these movies are getting worse or if I’ve had enough of them. It wasn’t awful, but it is slowly fading into becoming a movie that will end up with dust on the shelves.
Maybe I’m not the greatest judge considering that this film is targeted for children, but deep into my twenty-five I can still appreciate a good animated story, my inner child hasn’t left the building, and probably never will.
After several years in the unknown, believing he was the only child, Gru finds out that he has a twin brother, after meeting him, not only are they the complete opposite, but his twin is dying to get into the family business that is being a villain, and he wants Gru’s help.
I found the plot rather dumb, dull, and going at a very slow pace, making it even more boring since it never seemed to come to an end. However, the very few scenes the minions have alone are almost worth watching the movie. Personally, I would continue on making movies with just the minions, and end Despicable Me with this one. 4/10
