I loved this movie and both my daughters loved it even more. It is AS GOOD as the first part, therefore this review follows the main lines of my review of the first "Despicable me". This review contains very limited SPOILERS.

1. Hilarity - Exactly as the first film, this sequel is HILARIOUS! There is hardly any 15 seconds in this movie that would not contain a really good gag, children or/and adult oriented. Whoever wrote the scenario was a genius!

2. Despicability - in this film Gru is a little bit different from what he was in the first part. He is no more so grumpy, mean, petty and permanently aggravated - he certainly smiles more and all his attitude softened. He remains however exactly as insecure as in the first film. That being said, there are moments in this film when the old Gru resurfaces, when his heart is broken or when somebody REALLY upsets him. His geriatric sidekick and only friend (well, kind of) doctor Nefario didn't take all this change easily and he has some trouble to adapt his evil laboratory to new tasks of producing jam and jelly... Gru's murderous (and toxic) dog/rat/wolverine/skunk like pet on another hand felt completely under the spell of the girls - but still gives a great show! The two "bad guys" are also excellent - which is a real achievement, considering that one of them belongs to species usually not associated with evil villainy...)))

3. Girl power - as in the previous film, I believe that any parent of little girls will fall immediately in love with Margo, Edith and Agnes, the three little orphaned sisters Gru adopted in the first part. Those seemingly defenseless creatures took him since under the sweet and soft but in the same time surprisingly totalitarian control little girls exercise over their fathers, adoptive or not...

For me this was a sequel which actually improves on the original - please do not get me wrong the original film was pretty good too. There was plenty of eye-popping visual inventiveness and some great laughs that were cross generational and kept the whole family entertained, The minions are as a adorable as ever, and in this production it was great to see that they got more centre stage billing and they really do deliver the goods - with lots of minion mischief.

I loved this movie first time, at the cinema and so far I'm not tiring of seeing it again and again...mainly thanks to the Minions. I think I prefer this to the first film but I guess that's personal choice.

I'd say this film is funnier but as mentioned above this is due in large part to the fact the Minions seems to have more screen time. Gru is Gru however he obviously starts this film where he left the last one and so he is no longer looking for his next dastardly plan, leading to world domination. That said, he's no angel still and his attitude is enough to make me laugh alone.

The 3 girls are in the film, as they were the first, and they too are really good characters but it's all about the Minions for me. A great film I could watch time and again.

Simply a wonderful fun film. The minions as usual steal the show but here the story is more substantial and the characters, in particular Gru, given a more fleshed out arc.

Here Gru is enlisted to help track down a criminal mastermind. This particular criminal has a serum which mutates whatever it comes into contact with, the minions become guinea pigs with hilarious results.

The jokes come thick and fast as does the action. A slim running time ensures this doesn't outstay it's welcome. A great sequel to an already entertaining film. The best non Pixar film this year.

I totally agree with the other five star reviews here, this film is just so entertaining for kids and adults alike. Watched it over Christmas with the family (and several times since then), and as an in-law said, you could put this on repeat play and the family would just sit there and watch it over and over again. It's a film that just makes you laugh and feel so good. Is there any better sort?

The plot in short is that Gru gets recruited, somewhat reluctantly, into working with the Anti Villain League to help with a series of unsolved crimes. Along the way we are introduced to several new characters, notably El Macho, a mad 'guard chicken' and Lucy Wilde, the AVL agent assigned to work with Gru. I really like the way that Gru's and the three girls' characters have been developed since the last movie (Margo has her first crush!) and clearly much thought has been given with this. It certainly works.

For once, a sequel that is even better than the original, and bravo to the guys at Illumination Entertainment who have proved beyond doubt that they are not simply cynically exploiting the success of the earlier film. Roll on Despicable Me 3!

Firstly, DVD arrived in good time and was a great price. As for the film, well it is great, very funny and lots for both kids and adults to enjoy. It is just as funny as the first film and of course features all the characters that you know. Another super minions movie! If in any doubt, just get it you will not be disappointed.

I'm sure (and hopeful!) that there will be another one, my boys cannot get enough of the minions, so hopefully there will be.

In summary good service from Amazon and great film. Perfect!
