Prequels and sequels are more often than not NOT better than the original first movie. (The only recent exception to this rule was when the makers of Madagascar 3 made a wonderfully, funny movie to make up for two somewhat dull predecessors.)
Despicable Me 2 is funny, enjoyable, witty and watchable, although it isn’t nearly as adorable as he first one. Who is adorablererer though, is little Agnes – to me the star of this movie.
The makers had tried to come up with a well written plot and they succeeded so-so, but Despicable Me 2 will always be just that – another sequel.
Is it worth watching?
Despicable Me 2 is definitely better than most recent animated movies and is more appropriate for children than many other ‘children’s’ movies on the circuit. There are enough funny jokes in to make Mom and Dad sit through it too.
Enjoy the silliness of the minions, kids!
I give it: 4/5
This is a good movie for a family evening. It doesn’t contain scary stuff which will cause nightmares to the little ones and no hidden messages either. Although, there is a very angry chicken on the loose…
Violence: That angry chicken… No, really. It’s okay.
Offensive Stuff: Nothing really, except if you want to find something.
5/5 Don’t miss! Do whatever to go and watch!
4/5 Good, watchable, but it may have something to put someone off, or may just not be your cup of tea.
3/5 OK, but if you have something else to do, reconsider and watch it when it comes out on DVD or on TV.
2/5 Pff, why would they waste time to make it and why would you waste your time and money?
1/5 Don’t even bother. You have to be paid to watch this and then be recompensed for your time.
0/5 Need I waste words?
