Excerpt: Despicable Me 2 is a great movie just not as well as the first. The movie was funny and cute with some adult humor which i liked. The plot is very liner and theres actually not a lot of the plot.
Summary: I didn't think it was as good as the first one. However, the introduction of new characters and new story-lines was excellent. The minions and the youngest child are just as adorable (if not more so) as in the first movie.
Excerpt: "Don't grow old soon..." Its the very line that touches me most since I always tell it to my little boy, which ironically this film as his very first movie experience. The usual cast are back with Gru, three adopted girls, Margo, Agnes, Edith and the minions.
Summary: A sequel that plays to the main strengths of the first. Those strengths being the comedy and the 'minion' characters. There is more of both here and I see that as a good thing, because they are what I enjoyed in the original 'Despicable Me'.
Excerpt: Although the film doesn't quite have the charm of the original, for an animated sequel it still holds up remarkably well and once again I have to hand it to the vocal talent involved and, of course, to the antics of the minions.
Summary: Despicable Me 2 is pure family-friendly fun. It's an honorable sequel to the 2010 original, giving more screen time to the minions (who are absolutely hysterical) and providing a much more engaging plot as it tackles themes about relationships, which gives the movie the heart it needs.
Excerpt: I can't say I didn't enjoy Despicable Me 2 because I did, in fact, have a good time watching it. The gags were funny enough, the visuals are nice enough, and the experience was pleasant overall.
