marcotheconqueror I think movies like this are very particular to your type of humor, and (I'm not sure if I should say this but) I really thought it was funny. It was more complex than a simple good-guy bad guy plot, not because of the plot itself, but because of the elements and settings of the movie. It moves around the world and while of course there are going to be stupid parts, if you come in expecting a movie about little yellow guys, the nice touches on the parts of the minions traveling through New York in the 1960s and the beginning with the minions evolving from organisms go a long way. I didn't care that much about the evil lady whatever her name was, but I guess that's just me.
Tweekums This standalone film follows the Minions, who were first seen in 'Despicable Me'. We see how they have been around since the time of the dinosaurs, always trying to find the most evil beings to serve… and then accidentally kill! Eventually they can find nobody to serve and as the centuries pass they fall into a depression. One day Minion Kevin decides to do something about it; he, along with sidekicks Stuart and Bob set off to find a new evil master to serve. They find themselves in New York in 1968; there they hear that Villain-con is taking place in Orlando. They make their way there and find themselves working for top villain Scarlet Overkill. She has plans to take over England; the first stage is to get the Minions to steal the crown… not surprisingly things don't go quite as Scarlet hoped and then the Minions are in her sights.The little yellow minions were one of the highlights of the' Despicable Me' films so it isn't a surprise that they got their own film. The main story isn't particularly original but that isn't too much of a problem as it is just an excuse to put the minions in a variety of amusing situations where all their attempts to help their new mistress lead her to think they are actually working against her. Most of these set pieces are pretty funny in a way that should amuse children of all ages and adults who enjoy slapstick silliness. The '60s setting provides a good excuse to incorporate music of the era; sometimes sung in the minions' gibberish! The story ends nicely in a way that links into 'Despicable Me'. The animation is impressive with good character designs and detailed backgrounds. Overall I'd say this was a lot of fun and would recommend it even if it isn't quite up to the quality of 'Despicable Me'… it is very silly but it is also a lot of fun.
svr-2200 Minions: Movie Review.Minions is an enjoyable entertaining animation movie for kids as well as for adults too, with its funny comedy scenes it will keep making adults laugh and smile too. 3D Aspect of the Minions Movie is great and and Animation is fantastic. The characterization of Minions are excellent and Visual Effects (CGI, VFX) are brilliant. The movie looks very good visually. I watched the movie in 3D and one can literally feel all the little Minions jumping out of the screen.The performance of Pierre Coffin (as the Minions), is must watch and it is positive point of the movie. Its entertaining and worth watching. Minions is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda. The directors have done a satisfactory jobs in creating a good prequel/spin off Minions Movie. Their creative vision of crafting those awesome and amazing little Minions is amazing. The performances are good. Pierre Coffin as the Minions is great. The character of Sandra Bullock as Scarlett Overkill is OK, but not up too the mark, somehow it misses the perfection mark. Michael Keaton and Geoffrey Rush as supporting characters were OK, and the rest of the cast characters were good but sidelined.Minions has lots of flaws too. The story plot structure is bad, the script and screenplay seems to be underwhelming at certain times and there is no strong support to the movie from the story point of view. There are lots of unnecessary and underdeveloped characters, especially the character of Scarlett Overkill (Sandra Bullock) is very under utilized and does not feel too good. The story plot line is somewhat weak, its like anything is happening anytime without any proper effect.Minions are delight to watch. I enjoyed the movie, its a good cinema time for your kids and maybe for you too.(Please Note: That This Review represent only my professional point of view and my personal honest opinion about the film, and does not represent others. Thank You).
vsd324 This movie takes the best feature of the movies Despicable Me (2010) and Despicable Me 2 (2013) and turns it into its own feature films…the minions! This movie take place BG—that is "before Gru." We learn that minions are creatures whose only satisfaction is to serve the evilest villains on earth. We see that since the dawn of time, the minions have served the worst villains from cavemen to Dracula—albeit not to the greatest success. The minions fall on dark times, where they have no villain to serve. This causes the entire minion civilization to fall into a great depression, until one day, the minion Kevin decides to set off on a quest to find the most evil villain on earth for the minions to serve. Kevin begins his quest by finding his way to Villain-Con, a convention for all of the world's super villains. It ends up that Kevin and his two apprentices Stuart and Bob fall under the employment of Scarlett Overkill, the world's first female Super-villain. Together they plot to steal the crown of the Queen of England, and the adventure unfolds. This movie is non-stop laughs from the Universal Pictures presents screen right to the Illumination Entertainment logo after the end credits roll. Much of the movie takes place in the minion language (which while incomprehensible borrows words from French, Spanish and Italian; and those are just the languages I detected). Still without understanding exactly what the minions are saying you can understand the messages conveyed, particularly when they are mocking each other for failing—some of the funniest scenes of the movie. For the third movie in a franchise this movie lives up to the first two films. A wise move to take a lovable, adorable, and hysterical character and spin off it's own film.
