I’ve been meaning to write this review for a good few weeks now, I saw this film at least 2 weeks back, anyway, here we are.

So Despicable Me 2, after the HUGE success of the first film released back in 2010, I had very high expectations for the follow up, I knew deep down however that it would really take a lot to beat it. I was right. There was never a real chance for this film to beat the first one. Film 1 had made such an impact on me as a viewer – I laughed so much and enjoyed the whole experience, that I had almost set myself up for not liking this one as much. So let’s actually talk about the film.

The plot is, as it should be, simple: Gru is called upon to find/ capture a bad guy with the help of a new love interest. A forumula has been stolen and it’s Gru’s job to find it! Naturally things don’t go to plan and with the help of the simply brilliant Minions, Gru fights for justice.

I have to say that this film isn’t as funny as the first one, HOWEVER I don’t think it has much to do with the content, instead I think it’s because I hadn’t seen a film like this before and so when the first one was released, I just found the whole thing hilarious, from Gru as a character to the personalities of the little yellow Minions. This film however does deliver on the story, visual animation and originality. Hey, it made $471,576,775 in the box office, it did something right.

A very strong 7/10 for Despicable Me 2.
