Minions: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

As the Despicable Me franchise became a worldwide hit; it's not surprising to see the minions to have a back story of their own. Narrated by Geoffrey Rush, the film begins with the minions starting as single-celled yellow organisms that journeys to historical timelines and hopes to find the most despicable master to serve. However, they always fail to keep their masters from the T-Rex, Count Dracula and up to the Napoleon era. This causes a deep depression on to their tribe until one minion named Kevin ventures into the world along with Stuart and Bob to search for a new evil boss to serve. 

Who doesn't love the Minions right? Well, in their latest film, they managed to keep the charm of these adorable creatures. Three of them owned the spotlight with Kevin, Stuart and the very cute Bob leading the charge. They are the three yellow ones which you can always cheer on. They provided a delightful ambiance and throw out positive vibes throughout thanks to their appearance and cute gibberish language. 

However, the film lacked a lot of firepower coming from its main villain Scarlett Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). It seems like that she not up with the challenge like what Steve Carell ha s been doing for the past two films. Another major blow is the presence of the three kids (Margo, Edith and the very lovable Agnes), which we think a third part instead of a prequel may have done the trick. It is still a lot of fun but ranking each film in the series; Minions will easily drop down at the bottom of your list.

Overall, Minions still spells out the word fun and entertainment, especially for the kids were in some of them brought their minion toys (including me) inside the cinema. It is also not a problem for the adults who certainly laughed harder than the youngster last night at the special screening. We all know that they can come out with a better one in the next few years but still this is an enjoyable animated film for the whole family.
