Despicable Me 2

Sequel to the villainous animated comedy featuring the returning Steve Carell as Gru - this time recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a new super criminal. Russell Brand and Kristen Wiig also return alongside new voices Steve Coogan, Ken Jeong and Benjamin Bratt.

After Despicable Me (2010), Gru has retired from villainy and now lives a quiet life with his three adopted daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes. But his domestic life takes an unexpected turn when he is recruited by Lucy Wilde (Wiig) and Silas Ramsbottom (Coogan) from the Anti-Villain League, a society dedicated to fighting crime on a global scale. In a unique position to get inside the mind of a super villain, Gru - along with his minions - takes on the new threat: a tough, Mexican villain named Eduardo (Bratt).

The minions give good mayhem and the twig-armed animation’s lovely. Despite the coolest submarine-car since Bond’s Lotus Esprit, though, Despicable Me 2 is light on gadgets – and surprises, too.

Its repetitive qualities are beyond reproach. Every bit as amiable and disposable as its predecessor, it recycles everything from slapstick gags to its own voice cast.

Nothing here to challenge anything from the Pixar golden age, but Despicable Me 2 is a sweet-natured family film.

You can wish for a tighter plot, yet aside from the entirely useless 3D, there's little reason to be angry with Despicable Me 2.

While the new edition doesn't quite catch that inspired spark, there's still plenty to enjoy here courtesy of those zippy visuals and a pitch-perfect voice cast.

It falters in the middle and hesitates unnecessarily in setting up the love story, but Gru still has charm and kids will adore the Minions.

The second instalment of Despicable Me was a little hit and miss for both me and my daughter. It maintained a sense of the first movie but lacked Gru’s comical struggle evil Vs nurture. Although, I guess a repetitive storyline would have been a little too predictable. Instead we see Gru so in grossed in his new domesticated role, he needs to be coerced...

Loved it, not as funny as the first one, but sequels never are. Had the same charming jokes while retaining a few treats for the grown-ups.

Outstanding film - I completely fell in love with it, it was sweet, adorable, and absolutely funny. The minions were definitely the favourite of every audience, and though you couldn't understand them they make up for it with their slapstick comedy. The whole theatre boomed with laughter in every quirky scene and all characters were very loveable, even the...
