Storyline

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters-from T. rex to Napoleon-the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression. But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he-alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob-ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world's first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation. Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the... Written by Universal Pictures

Very disappointing considering all the merchandise made and expectations we had for this movie..
1 July 2015 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I honestly don't write reviews very much but I felt like I had to for this one. Long story short, Illumination Studios MESSED UP real bad with this movie. We were all expecting some amazingly funny movie from the previous movies (despicable me 1 and 2), but maybe we were spoilt with the humor and quality so much that we were all just expecting too much for this movie. I mean it wasn't a train wreck, but the movie felt very forced and it just didn't have that magic to it that so many animations have these days. All of the jokes were pretty much shown in the trailer for this movie, and I don't really think the movie should have gone the way it had, it was Way too focused in London for some reason. This movie is completely different to despicable me despite still having the minions in it and I think this movie was only meant for kids this time despite previous movies still being entertaining for adults and teenagers. My advice is to not watch this unless you really can't find anything else to watch, most of the laughter is summed up in the trailer anyway I guess everyone makes mistakes lets all just hope despicable me 3 is good (if it ever gets produced after a failure like this that is....)
