Movie Review: Despicable Me 2 [2013]

Despicable Me 2 has more minions then Despicable Me and therefore it's lot more funnier. And I can tell, nothing can get any more hilarious then this animation, it made me cry tears & roll on the cinema floor. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but mostly I could not help myself giggling.

Gru is done with evil stuff and he's back to normal life, trying to be a good father to three adorable daughters. He produces and sell jams, which are not delicious, but he's happy, cause he finally got family. Girls love him very much, however they still want mom, so they try to get someone for their daddy, which most does not work.

Their lives get a little messy when Gru is hired by anti-villain league to fight against world's most dangerous villains. Together with the AVL agent, Lucy Wilde, Gru concludes that his prime suspect is the presumed dead supervillain, El Macho, whose teenage son likes his eldest daughter, Margo. Because of his growing mutual attraction to Lucy, Gru seems on the wrong track even as his minions are being quietly kidnapped en masse for some malevolent purpose.

Despicable Me 2 brings even more joy, then other animations this year, because it's hilarious, very lovely and well made. It has everything a good animation should have. It's not perfection, it does not astonishes you, but entertainment part is awesome here. The same time, it does not bring much freshness in the genre and it's actually quite predictable. On the contrary to first installment, this film is less about storytelling, but making audience laugh and laugh and laugh. It kind of seems to be made for sake of minions. 

All in all, it is worth watching, definitely one of the bests of genre in 2013. Additionally, if you love those little yellow people, you must see it, they are making movie so much better.

Oscar chances? Most probably, it gets nominated because of impressive box office and Despicable Me was snubbed the other year. Also, it brings what animation shall bring: enjoyment and delightful watching experience.
