My review: When I first heard that there was going to be a second Despicable-Me-Film I wasn’t quite sure what to think. I thought that it would be cool to see all the characters again but sequels usually aren’t as good as the first. I was actually positively surprised, at least I watched in the cinema twice. It was very funny again, but the story and the idea weren’t that new anymore and even I as an absolute minion-lover think they overdid it a bit on that front (although the last scene was just awesomilarious 😉 )… After the Minion-Film I probably won’t be able to look at the any more without wanting to… do not nice stuff. What I would have liked to see was what happened to Vector and the poor minion that also landed on the moon. The new characters were fun enough (I like it when Lucy does her kruuumpiiing) but there was no Vector *cry*. So, the film was quite good, but it didn’t quite get the awesomeness of the first part. Which one did you prefer?
Something I love about this film: the minion’s ice-cream-party (GELATOO GELATOO!!)
In All: 8.5/10
