Illumination Entertainment is back for a prequel of the smash hit movie, Despicable Me (2010). Despicable Me 2 (2013), like the first movie, will also be directed by Pierre Coffin, who was nominated for multiple awards for his outstanding effort. Despicable Me 2 is an action packed comedy that will keep the viewers on the edge of the seat. Perfectly plotted, this film is a must see for the fans of the first film in the series. The story continues on from the first film, as Gru (Steve Carell) continues on with his life looking after his three new children Agnes (Elsie Fisher), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Margo (Miranda Cosgrove). With his evil mastermind life behind him, Gru has decided to live a quiet life, until the local Anti-Villain League need his help to track down a new villain. With the help of his new partner Lucy (Kristen Wiig) they together hunt down their target, only to realise they have the wrong guy! At the same time, Gru is looking for a love life, his minions are getting kidnapped and his apprentice is leaving. The series of nail-biting and mind crunching moments will spin the audience’s head. The animation of the movie is absolutely brilliant and breathtaking. The intricate detail of each character is amazing. The minions, who are no mistake a favourite amongst the audience, do not fail to entertain the viewers once again. However, with comparison to the first movie, the minions did not appear as much, and only made major appearances at the start and towards the end. Although this was much of a downside, the minions had very funny lines and were absolutely adorable. ‘Minion’ fans will not be disappointed of their appearances throughout the movie. The prequel is based on more action compared to the heart-warming story of the first film. However, Despicable Me 2 did not fail to give high amounts of laughter throughout the entire movie. The making of the film was a great success in which everyone should get the chance to watch.
