In a happy suburban neighbourhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, Gru (Steve Carell) is planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon! Until, he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Elsie Fisher).
Watching the trailers prior this review, I had some reservations about this animation, but afterwards I changed my mind.
This is an absolute gem of a film, the characters within the story are so compelling, and unique.
You can’t help but fall in love with them. I would reckon kids, even adults would want a Minions toy figure. I can just imagine how huge and popular the merchandising sales will be.
It was funny, moving, the colors was vibrant, and the animation was brilliant.
Yes the ending is predictable, but this is a happy-go-lucky movie I wouldn’t mind seeing again.
Goodbye Toy Story, hello Minions.
