The Anti-Villain League decides it needs an insider's help and recruits Gru in the investigation.

When the Minions assemble to give Dr. Nefario a 21-fart-gun salute, the bugle call "To the Color" can be heard playing in the background. This is a U.S. Army bugle call that is traditionally played on Army posts after the call of "Retreat," as the post flag is lowered at the end of the duty day. See more »
At the start of the film, when the secret lab is stolen from the Arctic, the footage is being viewed in AVL headquarters. The information on their screen includes latitude and longitude co-ordinates.
These co-ordinates are actually in southern Sudan, rather than the Arctic circle. See more »

I was really looking forward to this film, but to be honest, it wasn't all that amusing. It made me smile a couple of times, but no real chuckles. The story was a little messy. Gru wasn't as convincing. Neither were his interactions with some of the new characters. Pure good doesn't suit him very well. The minions weren't as funny - in fact, they were a little annoying - and the villain's master plan was rubbish.
The graphics were okay, but visibly low budget (compared to Pixar's Brave, for instance). It was as disappointing as one must expect from a sequel.
If you don't have anything better to do and just want to be mildly entertained for 98 minutes, go for it. Otherwise, just re-watch the original Despicable Me, it was a lot better.
