Minions Stuart, Kevin, and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a super-villain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.
Where to start with Minions? This is a pure, kids movie, though they do try to add a few scenes in there for the adults to laugh at, and I will admit that I did chuckle at a few of the jokes. However, I think the one downfall for this movie is that we enjoyed the minions in Despicable Me because they were side characters and weren’t the main focus. Now they are front and center, and yes, they are cute and adorable but really do not sustain a full-length movie.
For a group that is supposed to follow the biggest and baddest, evil boss out there, you really don’t understand why they are so driven to do so. All of their actions make you look at them as sweet, innocent minions who really do not have an evil bone in their yellow bodies. The movie glosses over telling us why they are so driven to find the perfect evil boss and why they couldn’t work for a superhero instead. Although, by the time of Despicable Me 2, they really are working for a hero instead of a villain.
Overall, I was not disappointed by this movie–it was cute and enjoyable–but I would not pay full price at the theater for it. The kids are going to love this, and it will most likely drive the parents crazy.
There are mid-credit and end-credit scenes.
