This film is a visual masterpiece, that is somewhat breath taking from start to finish. The nostalgia of the music and the realistic visuals have really mounted to a cinematic event. Timon and Pumba have been completely rewritten so the jokes and gags are unexpected and fresh that kept me entertained. The opening of the circle of life brought a tear to my eye, just due to the shear beauty and meaningfulness of the wonderful planet we are living in. My only negatives for this film is due to the style of animation I Just Can't wait to. Be King and Be Prepared we're toned down from the larger than life and expressionism displayed in the original. Personally the original will always be the best, but out of the string of remakes Disney has released this year, this one is the best.
This film is a serious downgrade from the previous 2 films. Firstly, the main positive is that it was nice that they ended it on a cliffhanger and made me excited to know what will happen next, unlike ending it with a dance break like the previous 2 films, due to lack of thought into a meaningful ending. Dry is a decent character, but you can't tell if you are meant to like or dislike him throughout the whole film. At this point in the series, I realised how much much Gru brought to the table when he was a villain rather than a hero. I felt like if they make a Despicable me 4 to end the series, because it can't drag on much longer, it would end with Dru looking after the children with Kucy, whilst Gru returns to his life as A villain. The minions are sidelined in this sequel, and their story would be funny as a short film, but it does not drive the plot at all for a feature film. I also highly disliked the unicorn sub plot, as it felt dragged out and meaningless, and the fact Agnes sold her unicorn at the start felt like it wasted all that time getting it in the first film. Balthasar Bragg is an unbearable villain, with no intentions and back story to remotely suggest making Hollywood float into space. How many times do I have to hear- I've been a Bad boy with that stupid laugh. I had very little patience for him and wanted Vector to come back or something, because Bratt needed shooting with that piranha gun. Also Lucy trying to be a good Mum, the thought was there, but it didn't flow very well. Certain new characters had 0 development for the who,e film, like the Butler and the new head of the AVL and we never even see Gru get his job back so that whole scene may as well have been cut when we see Gru lose his job. It was completely irrelevant or not wrapped up by the end of it. This film is snjoyable to an extent but also has some annoying aspects that take up a good half of the film, in terms of Lucy, unicorns and Balthasar Bratt. However I would have expected from a third instalment that didn't live up to the previous 2 movies and the spinoff, I would not have wanted a 4th film, but after the ending I was eager for a film about Gru and Dru going against each other, and by the end of it Gru would return as a villain. It would only serve the film well if you follow Gru from villain to a hero and making his final debut where he decides he is truly despicable.
This is my personal favourite in the Despicable Me series, due to the more complex plot than the other two films and the genuine character development for all characters, that isn't seen in the third film. I love the villain in this film and the character of Lucy. The vibrant colour palette is very appealing and the growth of Story from the original is exciting and thrilling. The addition of the AVL is welcomed by me and added more depth to the story.
This is a nice film, and I would highly recommend. It's nive to be finally be on the side of the antagonist. The score and soundtrack are very good and the style is quite unique, and is responsible for the simplification in animation style across the box office. Vector is by far the best villain in the Despicable Me series, and the minions gags are by far the most memorable in this one.
This film was pretty good. The story was very British which is what I like and the satire really got me laughing, particularly that of Ed Sheeran. Boyle pulled it out of the bag and Patel and James' performances were very entertaining. I'd only say that most of the Beatles songs were cut quite short, unlike that of the Mama Mia movies and Rocketman. I would ha e enjoyed getting into the songs a bit more. John Lennon's scene was touching but wished Mccratney and Star had a cameo appearance. Overall I would definitely recommend.
