When the first trailer of the third installment of the popularfranchise surfaced on YouTube, I was quite amused but skeptical at thesame time. I loved the previous two movies, but the 2015 Minions moviefell very short of my expectations where the jokes seemed overdone andI kept glancing at the time hoping it would end.
I went to the cinema not knowing what to expect, because despite mydoubts, at least rotten tomatoes had given it a good rating. From thefirst scene itself to the last, this movie had me laughing throughout.The jokes were slapstick most of the time, there was no real depth toit, but was there ever? Nevertheless it was good. I instantly loved thevillain, the man wearing shoulder pants! While not as entertaining asvector from the first movie, this 80's villain Balthazar Bratth held upas a worthy successor. The minion bits were good, as long as it's not acontinuous two hours of the yellow bastards running around and makingtrouble, they are a treat to watch. The next highlight of the movie wasDru, Gru's twin brother. And not bad at all, Steve Carell manages to doa higher pitch version of the same voice and accent he used with Gruand he nails it. The character blend effortlessly into movie.
The third movie follows the same formula as the first two, the supervillain causes big trouble kidnapping someone close to Gru while makingthings go boom boom! While Gru and the family come to the rescue.However unlike most movie trilogies, where the jokes get old and wefeel they should just stop *cough cough transformer cough cough*Despicable me 3 manages to keep her charm and deliver a veryentertaining movie. I went with my family and everyone enjoyed!

I thought Despicable Me 1 and 2 were great fun, movies that you couldwatch over and over every few months or so and still laugh. DespicableMe 3 I hardly laughed at all, and can't see myself watching it againanytime soon. That's not to say it wasn't fun. The Minions were kind offunny as usual but the overall plot and script wasn't as witty andcharming. Mr. Gru is not really a good guy or villain in this one. Theinteraction between him and his new found brother provided a fewlaughs. His new wife tries hard in her new role as mother to Gru'skids, maybe that could have been played up more. I've heard anotherreviewer say this was an unnecessary sequel, and that's hard todisagree with.
After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother-a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin's despicable footsteps-one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.
