I attended an early screening of this movie for my review. All opinions are my own.
My kiddos were really looking forward to seeing the Minions Movie. For them it did not disappoint. They loved every minute of it. Even my 3 year old sat through the entire movie. It is silly and fun entertainment for them.
My husband and I on the other hand didn’t enjoy it as much as the kids. Despicable Me was fantastic, I loved it. I even enjoyed Despicable Me 2. But this Minions movie, unfortunately, didn’t hold up to the same standards that the Despicable Me movies had. It lacks a heart which I believe comes from Gru and the 3 little girls. When you take those characters away, they take a lot with them. The minions movie is full of silliness and physical comedy, lots of cute minion shenanigans and gibberish, but it doesn’t have a strong story line which made me feel invested. I was actually bored through quite a lot of it, and my husband felt the same way.
That being said, I did laugh at some of the movie and it had a few clever jokes for the parents. But I was expecting more. My kids however enjoyed it very much. So is it worth seeing in theaters? If you have kids, yes. It’s worth going for them as it is a fun movie for kids. Just don’t have high expectations and take it for what it is. Silly minion nonsense.
We were able to see it in 3D and the 3D effects were fun. You have to stay through the end credits since that is where the best 3D effects will be seen. So if you take the kids spring for the 3D showing if you can. It’s fun.
Minions is now playing in theaters everywhere.
“The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves withoutsomeone to serve and fall into a deep depression.
But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.
The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.”
