Movie review: "Despicable Me 2"


By now it is probably very obvious that I'm an "animated movie" junkie! There's just something about made up animated characters that really appeals to me...and the kids love them too so that helps a lot!
Yesterday we saw "Despicable Me 2", which is one of those movies we were waiting for... It is predicted to be a big summer hit and I'm sure it will be!
If you didn't see Despicable Me, then you should probably watch that first because it will give you a  much better insight of the characters and it will help you fall in love with Gru and his minions... 
With that said, let's go ahead and establish that "Despicable Me 2" was just awesome! The animation has come a long way since the first movie (2010) and the characters have certainly evolved a lot since then...
This movie's plot revolves around Gru's life as a father to his three adopted girls (Margo, Edith and Agnes) and how it conflicts with his desire to work with villains and have a more "exciting" life.  Gru is recruited by the AVL (Anti Villain League) and is asked to help with a special mission.  In the meantime, he falls in love with an agent and they develop a cute relationship...And of course so many funny things happen in between but I won't ruin the whole thing for you in case you haven't seen it...
The Minions are, of course, among the main characters of the movie and they play a huge role in the plot...they are so hilarious and add so much to the story... I wish all movies had minions in them! LOL
Some parts of the movie were slow and the plot might have been a little too complex for Gaby, but other than that it was a great movie...
I'll give this one 3.5 out of 4 stars! Good in my book!
