What is it about: It’s the third installment in the “Despicable Me” film series. In this Gru meets his twin brother Dru, who teams up with him for one last heist to keep up the family tradition. What happens post that forms the crux of the story directed by Pierre Coffin & Kyle Balda.
Why it’s disappointing: This could stay put for this movie.
What to watch out for: This film right from its first instalment had captivated the audience’s heart. One main reason being the stupendous MINIONS. They are pretty much the main attraction besides the central characters. But then central characters don’t give up on entertainment front as well, they bring in a great amount of humour and laughter which is iced with Minions. Creating a language and making it sound funny is a task and that has been the success mantra for the makers of this series.
The film has a neat plot, which pretty much reminds you old Hindi or Tamil films, where a long lost brother is found after ages and how they reunite. But when Hollywood uses that same formula and add a quotient of slapstick comedy making it very interesting. It keep your entertained throughout with their funny antics, especially the minions, just their appearance cracks you instantly.
Gru, Dru, Lucy, Margo, Edith and the cutest Agnes were perfectly backed with potential cast lending their voices, suiting the animated attire to its right fit. Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda, Dana and Nev, they all were so good that you might relate to them as their on screen animated characters. Not to forget the villain of this film, voiced by Trey Parker of South Park fame for Balthazar Bratt. This new villain was great and hilarious.
The animation was amazing, pretty much life like in few sequences. And the 3D was seamless packed with a crunching sound design and mix.
Verdict: The duo Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, did a very fine job in bringing out this third installment, in its true form without tampering the essence of the franchise. Most definitely a potential laughter this summer, don’t miss it and make sure to take your little ones who will appreciate the most.
