Goofs

The design of the Tube train isn't appropriate for 1968. Trains in that era would almost certainly have been unpainted aluminium (and if not, not with the colours shown) and would have had windows which could be opened. See more »

Not as heartwarming as the Despicable Me films but, it's hilarious!
10 July 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Minions is a movie that tells the origin story of the cute, yellow, goggle wearing creatures that gained massive popularity in Despicable Me(2010) & Despicable Me 2(2013). The Minions(Pierre Coffin) have been on Earth, far longer than humans have. They have only one purpose. Find the baddest & most despicable super-villain of all time. Their journey to find the baddest boss takes them on a long & tumultuous adventure. Finding a boss wasn't difficult. However, keeping a boss turned out to be particularly hard due to one hilarious mishap after another. Finally, three Minions namely, Kevin, Stuart & Bob take the initiative to make sure all the Minions have the most evil & despicable boss to work for. This leads the trio to, Scarlett Overkill(Sandra Bullock). Scarlett has nefarious plans to take over the world, with the help of Kevin, Stuart & Bob.

Minions is an extremely funny movie. This is thanks to the goofy antics of the adorable titular characters. I loved the idea of a Villain Con. This film had me guffawing throughout its run-time. However, it lacks the heart & emotional depth of the Despicable Me movies. Characters like, Gru, Margo, Edith & Agnes are missed. Don't worry though. The Minions, with their mildly understandable gibberish & various idiosyncrasies will make this film thoroughly enjoyable for the whole family. Though most of the gags involving the Minions get repetitive, it still manages to crack you up, every single time. The animation & 3D are fantastic. Sandra Bullock is brilliant as Scarlett Overkill. Jon Hamm is amazing as Herb Overkill. Michael Keaton is spectacular as Walter Nelson. Allison Janney is awesome as Madge Nelson. Steve Coogan is good as Professor Flux/Tower Guard. Jennifer Saunders is outstanding as The Queen. Geoffrey Rush is great as the Narrator. I loved Steve Carell's cameo as Young Gru. Last but not the least, Pierre Coffin steals the show as The Minions. A must watch for all fans of the Despicable Me franchise.
