The film eventually comes to hint at and vaguely explains the connection between Minions and Despicable Me which holds a certain satisfaction in itself, but this will certainly satisfy minion-fans, if not particularly wow the rest of us.
Divorced from the be-thankful-for-family homilies that motivate the 'Despicable Me' movies, this first solo outing for the lozenge-shaped scene-stealers improves on its predecessors: It's a Looney loop-de-loop of nonstop funny noises and sight gags.
This third in the animated 'Despicable Me' series finds the familiar balance between villainy and heroism, silliness and relevance, but it is a bit thinner. As characters, the Minions have a lot of limitations. This is for kids only.
