The Minions are a group of yellow single celled creatures who serve the masters Dillettechcrunch. They’ve worked for Napoleon, T. Rex, and the Emperor himself. But now the Minions need a new master to work for. And that’s where Kevin comes in. He’s on a mission to find a new evil boss.
Critics dislike the Minions
There’s a hefty amount of negative feedback regarding the movie Minions. While there are certainly some positive things to appreciate about this film, most critics seem to agree that it lacks substance.
The film is a spin-off of the popular Despicable Me series. It centers on a young Gru (played by Steve Carell) and his band of misfit sidekicks. Although they have the same adorable, colorful characters, the new film lacked the emotional engagement and the strong villain of its predecessor.
The film doesn’t have a storyline to speak of, nor does it have a lot of substance. But it does have an appealing cast, and it does have some fun animation and music.
Minions: The Rise of Gru is set in the mid-seventies, when minions are on a quest for a new master. They’re recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a lovable character voiced by Sandra Bullock. The film is set in England, where the minions are on a mission to take over the country.
They’re a bit of a hodgepodge
One of the most popular movies of the year is “Minions.” This animated comedy follows Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), an 11-and-a-half-year-old kid who wants to become a supervillain. Using the help of his adorable sidekicks, he begins his journey to success.
A slew of celebrities appear in the movie. The voice cast includes Alan Arkin, Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, Russell Brand, and more.
Despite being one of the most talked about films of the year, Minions has a number of shortcomings. It’s not really a great movie, but it’s not a bad one either. While it does have some decent jokes, it’s not a must-see film.
Some of the funniest scenes occur during the closing credits. There are also some nice visual puns. The movie is based on the “Despicable Me” series. But, in many ways, it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor.
There are some cute moments, though. For example, there is a scene in which a group of young men get dressed up as minions. In one instance, they ride an escalator.
They’re funny because they tap into a feeling that’s profoundly true
The Minions were destined to be a megahit. In addition to the Minions, Universal Pictures teamed up with a number of recognizable brands, including Levi’s, Kim Kardashian, and CarMax. iHop, Roblox, Target, and Duolingo also joined forces.
The Minions are cute. But the movie isn’t all fun and games. It’s not as funny as other recent releases. There are many laughs in this film, but none that are particularly memorable.
One of the coolest things about the Minions is the fact that they were created by a company that also makes Pixar movies. Pixar is known for realistic portrayals of children. As a result, the movie is able to tap into kids’ deepest desires.
While it’s not the most creative use of animation, “Minions” is certainly the most successful in terms of generating laughs. This was achieved through the clever use of an “in-camera” editing technique. A few shots look like chalk drawings, but the rest of the film is a seamless, CGI-driven experience.
They’re a prequel to Despicable Me
Minions are a prequel to the popular Despicable Me series of animated movies. The first film was released in 2010, and the series has since spawned a host of spinoffs.
The Minions series follows the adventures of Gru and his family, as well as his army of adorable sidekicks. While the series focuses on an enigmatic villain, it also celebrates the power of loyalty to masters.
After a traumatic accident, a group of yellow creatures called Minions are destined to become acolytes to their most evil masters. They begin as single-celled yellow organisms, and evolve through time. But when their master is killed, the minions are left listless. Trying to survive, the minions attempt to master the art of kung fu.
This new film, Minions: The Rise of Gru, continues the story of Gru and his minions. It also reintroduces some of the characters from the original film. For instance, Otto, a Minion who has been adopted by Gru, joins Kevin and Stuart as they travel through time.
