Trying to outdo his main rival Vector (voice of Jason Segel), serial villain Gru (Steve Carell) hatches a plan to steal the moon, aided by his army of genetically altered corn pops. About to set his dastardly plan in motion, and bristling with his arsenal of freeze-rays and sci-fi gadgetry, all goes according to plan until the arrival at his door of three little orphan girls, Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Agnes (Elsie Fisher) and Edith (Dana Gaier), in search of a father figure.

I have seen quite a lot of reviews from people who have seen it in the States before it came out over here and thought it was a 'must have' film to get on DVD. I really enjoyed watching it but found Steve Carell's accent for the voiceover slightly irritating and annoying. For me, the film would've been better with a different voiceover. The animation was brilliant as expected and the three little girls gave the film the 'awwww' factor, especially little Agnes with her love for Unicorns. But I think the 'star' of Despicable Me has got to be the Minions which were brilliant and extremely funny down from the voice and all the crazy things they were getting themselves into trouble with. All in all a very 'viewable' experience and I don't regret buying it, but I still prefer 'Ratatouille [DVD] [2007]' and WALL-E (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2008], just for the atmosphere, which 'Despicable Me' was somehow lacking.

I'm 20 years old and realised this film was probably targeted at children/families.
However, it stars Steve Carell - who happens to be one of my favourite actors - as well as Russell Brand (who has a small part), who I follow through his works. I am also a big kid at heart.

The voice acting is really well done by Carell and, of course, this is a beautifully animated film. I watched this on Bluray and the colours and sharpness are excellently presented. I imagine it looks great in 3D and you can make out where they'd implement it.
The plot, in short, is led by the main character Gru (Steve Carell) wanting to take over the world and be known as the biggest criminal and bad-guy there ever was. Simple enough. However, when the pyramids in Egypt are stolen he realises he is not the only one with this intent. He gathers his minions (the little green things) and formulates a plan to steal the moon... as you do. Without giving much away (and let's be honest you could read the plot in the DVD details if that's what you wanted) Gru has to adopt three orphans in order to get his hands on a secret weapon to assist his plan.

He ends up becoming distracted as a father-figure and has to decide what's really important to him. I won't ruin the ending. This film is absolutely worth watching and I'm sure kids will adore it.

We thought it was one of the best kids movies we'd seen for ages

We came out of the movie with big grins on our faces

We loved the minions so much we spent ages trying to find toy ones for Xmas pressies, but failed

We are most dejected that we have to wait until 21st Feb for the DVD

We are now counting the days . . . . . . .

Bought this for my daughter as we missed it when it was out at the cinema.
We watched it on Friday night and I had tears rolling down my cheeks. This is a brilliant film.
To reiterate another review Russell Brand is annoying (as ever) but the humour from Gru and especially the minions more than makes up for that.
Highly watchable and thoroughly enjoyable film for all ages.
p.s. does anyone else think Gru and Avram Grant were separated at birth?

At last, a really great animation that's not by Pixar! Really beautifully rendered and animated. Some nice funny moments with the 'minions'. Also, I really like the way they put a normal blu-ray in with the 3D blu-ray. The ideal solution.

I loved this movie and my 10 y.o. daughter loved it even more. It is so good, that I hardly know where to begin - so I tried to put the whole review in four points, mentioned in the title:

1. Hilarity - IT IS HILARIOUS! REALLY! 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 - the main character, Gru, is really a delight to watch: ugly, grumpy, mean, petty, vengeful, scheming, permanently aggravated and wholeheartedly devoted to the cause of evil - and in the same time incredibly insecure, convinced deep in his heart that he is a looser and haunted by the every day stronger feeling of the impending doom, for him and his evil army. I believe also that even his name is a kind of evil double entendre: it is obviously an abbreviation of "gruesome" but GRU was also, during the Cold War, the name of Soviet Army military intelligence, in charge particularly of assassinations abroad. In some James Bond movies GRU appeared under the name of Smertch. It gives a particular flavor to Gru, considering that his character is clearly inspired by some of the supervillains from James Bond franchise. His geriatric sidekick (and only friend - well, kind of) doctor Nefario and his murderous dog/rat/wolverine/skunk like pet (even after two viewings of this movie the jury is still out in my house on the question "what is this animal?") give also a great show!

3. Girl power - any parent of little girls (I have two) will fall immediately in love with Margo, Edith and Agnes, the three little orphaned sisters Gru adopts.
