Studio: Illumination Entertainment
Publisher: Universal Pictures
Release Date: June 20, 2013
It has been three years since Despicable Me introduced a young audience everywhere to the middle-aged super-villain Gru, his three adopted daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes, and his lovable yet hopeless Minions. The first film delighted and entertained fans of all ages, and when the sequel was announced, I know I personally couldn’t wait to buy a ticket, sit down, and watch the latest exploits of the Minions… Oh and the rest of the cast too!
Speaking of the cast, the voice acting in this film is phenomenal and really draws the audience in. One of Hollywood’s premier funnymen, Steve Carell reprises his role as Gru, and brings a lot of energy and emotion into the role, really becoming Gru. Joining Carell are other big names such as Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Russel Brand, Kristen Wiig and Benjamin Bratt.
The story continues on a little while after the events of the first movie, and follows the exploits of Gru (Steve Carell), who since his heist of the moon has reformed his evil ways and retired from the super-villain lifestyle to raise his three adopted daughters Margo (Miranda Cossgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher), and start his own business – making home made jams and jellies. Gru’s life is pretty normal; trying to avoid being set up on blind dates by his crazy neighbour, planning birthday parties and loving his girls. However his life is turned upside down when the Anti-Villain League recruits him to help track down an unknown super villain who has managed to steal an entire lab out of the Arctic Circle.
So Gru goes undercover, alongside a feisty A.V.L. Agent Lucy Wilde. Through the course of the film, Gru has to deal with his feelings for Lucy, finding the culprit of the Arctic Circle heist, and living through what is undoubtedly his most difficult moment as a father; the day his daughter starts dating.
Despicable Me 2 is a kids movie through and through. If you are expecting an intricate plot filled with twists, turns and an ending you would never see coming, then this isn’t the movie for you. Same goes if you are expecting a whole lot of subtle adult jokes that the kids in the audience wont understand until many years later. Instead the film sticks to its focus – a fun and entertaining kids movie, and it pulls this off to perfection. As a testament to its writing, during my session, even the most mature of audience members were laughing themselves silly when the head of the A.V.L. introduced his name as Silus Ramsbottom, and one of the Minions pointed and chuckled “he he he bottom.”
