Despicable Me 3 (2017)
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure, Family Film
Another film from the Despicable Me franchise but this one is following Gru (Steve Carell) and his family unlike the Minions movie. Personally, I am glad we are following this family again as these character are what made this series along with the minions (not just Minions 😛 ) . However, this movie is not spectacular as it could have been. Don’t get me wrong this film is alright, almost great and is definitely a brilliant family film 🙂 . Let’s start with the positives. I loved the villain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) who played his part in this narrative great, his reason for villain worked and his 80’s look was fabulous 😀 . I loved his general 80’s vibe and how his weapons were 80’s items like a Rubik cube 🙂 . The minions were funny in the prison especially with the freedom song 😛 . I also liked the addition of Dru (Steve Carell) who slotted into the “family” well and he became more likable as the story continued 🙂 . He was charming and a fresh update that the family needed for this film 🙂 . There were also sweet charming moments in this movie. Also the final battle was alright and entertaining plus I loved the ending scene with the “5 minute head start” (I won’t hint no more as I don’t want to spoil 😛 ). However, the storyline was not the most original and was only fairly entertaining. The minions weren’t as funny as they could have been and were not in it as much I was expecting them too. I’m not sure if that was a good thing and the general storylines felt like I was watching a television series episode with its individual sub plots. Though this film is still good enough for fans of Despicable Me, children, families and I did quite enjoy it 🙂 . The film is not as great as the original but I think this is better than Minions 🙂 Enjoy 😀
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
