Despicable It was a surprise to me in the year it was released, it looked like it would be a regular animation, but in the end it proved to be very good, and one of the best films of 2010, with a great voice cast, Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russel Brand, Julie Andrews, Will Arnet and etc, and a good direction by duo Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin, the animation is very well done, the soundtrack is cool, and the characters are very charismatic, Gru and the kids are my movie favorites, Minions have people who like them, but I particularly can not stand them, the script has some glide, not all the jokes works, I could not like the Minions, even though they have some cool moments, and the animation loses a little strength in the 3 act, Despicable Me has 1 and 2 very good act, and a 3 of ups and downs, is a very good animation, I recommend. Note 8.0

The first Despicable Me movie kick-started Universal's most lucrative animation franchise, and the first one to have any real meat to it since The Land Before Time, and An American Tail. It's interesting that a film about a super-villain named Gru, voiced by Steve Carell, becomes Universal's biggest franchise since the Jurassic Park Back to the Future film series. Well, it's definitely worthy of being a successful franchise, even if it is just the original film in this case.Despicable Me is a villain-lead film that gets away with some naughtily subtle humor relating to villainy. The story is this: Gru wants to pull of the greatest heist in history, in the form of stealing the Moon! That all changes when these three little girls come into his life; and they're very good at evading top-notch security. So, later on, he decides to adopt them and raise them as his own: at least as accomplices in crime.Despicable Me is a nice little unique trip in the field of animation, and I can see why it's become a beloved classic since its release. Good for the kids, good for adults thanks to its subtleties and yeah, just watchable all-around.


When a new, unknown villain, steals the Great Pyramid of Giza other villains feel somewhat inadequate. One such villain is Gru, he has a plan to steal the Moon! Before he can do that he will have to steal a new shrink ray. He manages to get the ray but it is promptly stolen from him by young villain Vector. He tries to get it back but has no luck; then he sees three orphan girls get into his house while selling cookies. He swiftly hatches a plan; he will adopt the girls then infiltrate Vector's lair by getting them to deliver 'robot cookies'. Of course he has no idea how to deal with children but as he does things with them grows to care about them and must ultimately choose between the girls and the moon.This film is lots of fun… and not just because of the little yellow Minions that proved so popular they would later get a spin-off movie. The minions are lots of fun in a way that should amuse children and adults alike. Gru is a good protagonist and his character develops nicely throughout the film; early on we see him tormenting a crying child but by the end he is reading a story, which he has written himself, to the three girls. Gru's schemes are suitably over the top and both he and rival Vector have suitably villainous lairs. The three young girls were cute in a way that was fun rather than annoying. The animation looks really good and while there were moments that were probably designed to show off the 3D in the cinema they didn't seem too obvious when watching on television. The voice cast did a good job bringing their characters to life. Some of the jokes are a little bit crude but not excessively so; for example in one scene a minion photocopies his backside. Overall I'd recommend this to fans of animated film, both young and old alike.


I can't say enough good things about this movie. I started watching it great skepticism. I knew I was NOT going to like it. I knew I was going to HATE the minions, and I truly believed I would define the movie in one word: stupid.BOY WAS I WRONG....in fact, as soon as it was over, I couldn't wait to watch part 2..and when that was over, I was looking for part 3 (glad to know that we will have that in 2017).My wife said to me yesterday, "You watched both?" LOL...she was incredulous that I had done so with such speed...I mean I do have a life....I have a career, and own a business, so she wondered when I had time....I MADE TIME! I think by now you know I would HIGHLY recommend this movie. It is funny, fun and certainly keeps your interest. It's like a good book that you can't put down....just EXCELLENT!(PS I love the minions)
