Despicable Me 2



The minions are baaack! :D
Beedo! Beedo!



So i watched TGV's "pick of the week" movie yesterday night , and guess what?!
It was Despicable ME 2!!!
Yeah i know it's not released yet, but we were lucky enough to get tickets before it was all sold out! :D




So, back to the movie.
*beware, spoilers ahead*



 Gru (now a father) is recruited by the Anti Villian League(AVG) to investigate on a case of stolen serum which can turn life-forms into invincible mutant killing machines.*cue purple minions*



In order to stop the evil villain from taking over the world, Gru teams up with secret agent Lucy Wilde.(which becomes his new love interest.)

△▽△▽

The movie is unpredictably hilarious.
 Laughter is indeed infectious, and everyone was laughing watching the minions .

But then if you dig deeper ( which i expect most audiences above four feet tall would), the movie isn't as good as the first. It goes with the classic cartoon plot : where everyone is bashed and blown to bits, and in the next scene, appears unscathed for another round of bombing/throat-slitting.
It's just mindlessly silly.and the sticky sweet (romance + action) plot is kinda cheesy...

And there's just no more villainous evil plots and schemes from Gru. He's been neutered into boring old nice guy. 
That's talent gone to waste, i feel :p and the whole plot just kinda lacks emotional connectivity that some animation films are so reknowned for. 
The good part? the minions are featured more in this film . Heheh nothing wrong with that, i suppose. I myself could sit there at watch them fight each other forever. 





Hmm. I heard that they're getting their own movie in 2014. It's funny that they speak gibberish, but then  it still seems that they understand english. I wonder how they communicate with their "bosses"?

Rating? (ermmm...)

6.5/10
brownie points for cuteness!


Till then, hang tight and enjoy your weekend!

xoxo,
