Despicable Me 2 DVD review

By Tribute on December 10, 2013 | 1 Comment

Carrying on from the first movie, Despicable Me 2 follows reformed super-villain Gru (Steve Carell) and his adopted daughters, Edith (Dana Gaier), Agnes (Elsie Fisher) and Margo, (Miranda Cosgrove) along with Gru’s adorable yellow minions. When Gru catches the eye of the Anti-Villain league for his outstanding work as a villain, he is recruited to help stop the newest criminal mastermind Eduardo (Benjamin Bratt) from his master plan of world domination. Teaming up with secret agent Lucy (Kristen Wiig), Gru must try and find evidence to prove Eduardo’s guilt as well as try to balance his fatherly duties.

Although usually sequels seem unnecessary, Despicable Me 2 can be viewed on the same level as it predecessor in both animation and comedy. This beautifully animated film has vivid colors and interesting characters. With jokes left, right and center, this film is laugh-out-loud funny and, just like the first movie, Gru’s minions definitely steal the show. The film is a tale full of action and adventure with a fine line of romance spun throughout the story, making it a highly entertaining film. Special features of the Blu-ray/DVD include director’s commentary, extended scenes, three all new mini-movies with introductions by Steve Carell as well as seven featurettes. ~Brie Davis

    It was cute but not nearly as good as the first one.
