Plot Outline:

The famed Anti-Villain League needs help taking down a new global terror and they turn to the baddest of them all: Gru... only he's not so bad anymore after turning into a father for Margo, Agnes, and Edith. But maybe there's enough evil left inside him to help after all... certainly the minions are on board. -- Chris Kavan

I didn't think it was as good as the first one. However, the introduction of new characters and new story-lines was excellent. The minions and the youngest child are just as adorable (if not more so) as in the first movie.

A sequel that plays to the main strengths of the first. Those strengths being the comedy and the 'minion' characters. There is more of both here and I see that as a good thing, because they are what I enjoyed in the original 'Despicable Me'. The fact that I was laughing almost consistently is the main reason I liked this animated treat. The story is as simple and passable as the first. It's all harmless kid friendly stuff again. A couple of new characters and a new identity for the minions are welcome funny bits. Nothing special, but a fun watch nonetheless.

Despicable Me 2 is pure family-friendly fun. It's an honorable sequel to the 2010 original, giving more screen time to the minions (who are absolutely hysterical) and providing a much more engaging plot as it tackles themes about relationships, which gives the movie the heart it needs. The voice acting is top-notch, the animation is lively and colorful, and the characters are likable as all hell. More than anything, the film is a blast that'll have you genuinely laughing until it hurts. 3/4

Despicable Me 2 great charm not enough plot

Despicable Me 2 is a great movie just not as well as the first. The movie was funny and cute with some adult humor which i liked. The plot is very liner and theres actually not a lot of the plot. Its fairly simple, Gru (steve carrel) is assigned to help the Anti-Villain League with Lucy Wilde ( Kristen Wiig) throughout the movie Gru starts to realized that he loves Lucy. Thats basically the main plot for the movie.

As others have said the minions steal the show i completely with them most of the laughs that i had was from the minions. i heard that their making a movie mainly based on the minions which is interesting. I would like to see it. the most funniest thing in the movie in my opinion was the villain's backstory. it should be the way Chuck Norris dies.

The movie is great and e...

Despicable Me 2 review

"Don't grow old soon..." Its the very line that touches me most since I always tell it to my little boy, which ironically this film as his very first movie experience. The usual cast are back with Gru, three adopted girls, Margo, Agnes, Edith and the minions. This reviewer felt the sequel had more depth since it focuses on the family aspects, overcoming fears (when Gru as a child which will be divulged), work-life balance (minions celebrating) and companionship. Soundtrack was well selected and a better antagonist was introduced, It could have been nice to see Gru become a villain but unfortunately his heart has softened because of the girls. We see a potential though with one of the girls. Dr. Nefario has more screen-time than the first installment, which would be pivotal during t...

Fun, but less so than the original

I can't say I didn't enjoy Despicable Me 2 because I did, in fact, have a good time watching it. The gags were funny enough, the visuals are nice enough, and the experience was pleasant overall. But at the same time, I couldn't help but feel a little let-down considering this is the much anticipated sequel to the surprisingly funny Despicable Me. It just seems a little weak, even rushed, but I can't deny it's entertainment value and easy appeal that- if nothing else- provides a relatively amusing, if unspectacular 98 minutes.

The paper-thin plot features Gru, adapting to the life of being a father, when out of the blue, he is approached by an agent of the AVL (Anti Villains League) named Lucy Wilde, who wants Gru's help in capturing the villain responsible for stealing a very danger...
