Despicable Me 2 relies heavily, and almost solely, on the minions as a source of genuine entertainment. Thankfully, the little yellow guys did a wonderful job. Apart from them, the movie was a pretty lazy effort, loyally following the standard plot formula that has been used way more times than it should have been. This predictable sequel, which rendered three of its predecessor’s central characters completely useless, is still thoroughly entertaining, thanks largely to the minions who undoubtedly stole the show.
Rating: 3.0/5 (TALK-o-meter: “Okay, I guess? Could be better.”)
The minions alone earn 4.0/5 (TALK-o-meter: “That was awesome!”)
