The weakest link
2 April 2015 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This short film is about three newly recruited minions attending an orientation day to work at a weapons laboratory. They did not pay attention to the video, hence they make mistakes that leads to disastrous results.

"Orientation Day" is only three and a half minutes long if you exclude the credits, but it manages to squeeze a lot in because of the quick paced plot. I think the orientation video is not as entertaining as it could be, but fortunately the second half of the film showing the minion working in the laboratory is way more entertaining. The second half shows how the minions are simple minded and have no consideration for the consequences of their actions, which is quite funny. I think this is the weakest short animation out of the three I watched.
