Quick Hits Movie Review: “Despicable Me 2”

One word: Amazing! Pierre Coffin directed the first film back in 2010 and now he continues his success with “Despicable Me 2”. Did I mention that he also does the voice of most of the beloved minions? Well he does. Not only did Pierre return for round two but so did Steve Carell who voices the “skinny-fat” lead character Gru. Miranda Cosgrove returned as the voice of Margo, and Russell Brand as Dr. Nefario. We also get some new talent in this film as veteran comic Kristen Wiig voices Anti-Villain League agent Lucy and Benjamin Bratt voices the Mexican Villain El Macho.
In the film, Gru (Carell) has settled in quite nicely to his new life as a father of his three girls. When given the chance to show he still has it though, he joins Lucy and the AVL (Anti-Villain League) in order to help them find the new mastermind criminal who is threatening the world. With the help of Lucy, Dr. Nefario, and the amazing Minions, Gru tries to help save the world instead of destroying it. Will he still have what it takes to think like a villain and save the world?
What can I say, I really enjoyed this film. Without a doubt I would say the best part of this film is watching the Minions do their thing. I laughed constantly at the things they were saying and doing. I sense a Minions movie in the near future.
The whole cast did a phenomenal job and the animation was as perfect as it gets. This is without a doubt the family movie of the summer and one of the biggest films of the year. I highly suggest you check out “Despicable Me 2”.
