The world is in danger. It needs a hero to catch a mysterious criminal. Enter ex-super-villain Gru (Steve Carrell), who is trying to live a crime-free life with his three adopted daughters.
As Gru’s attempts to live an ‘action-free’ life by mass producing jellies and jams with the help of Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) and the insanely funny army of minions (who simply steal the show!) remains a far fetched reality, the need to save the world beckons. He joins forces with new partner Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) and off the entire lot go to save the day.
With an intelligent script, plenty of cool gadgets, subtle messages of love and life for all, Despicable Me 2 is a winner. The movie lies between re-visiting your childhood and laughing yourself silly ’til you can’t breathe. Only regret – can’t bring the minions home! (JR)
