Storyline

While Gru, the ex-supervillain is adjusting to family life and an attempted honest living in the jam business, a secret Arctic laboratory is stolen. The Anti-Villain League decides it needs an insider's help and recruits Gru in the investigation. Together with the eccentric AVL agent, Lucy Wilde, Gru concludes that his prime suspect is the presumed dead supervillain, El Macho, whose his teenage son is also making the moves on his eldest daughter, Margo. Seemingly blinded by his overprotectiveness of his children and his growing mutual attraction to Lucy, Gru seems on the wrong track even as his minions are being quietly kidnapped en masse for some malevolent purpose. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

When the villain tap dances on the floor tiles to enter the code for the door to his lair, after he repeats the five-note pattern a second time (first four measures of the song La Cucaracha) the final sequence is completed by the mechanism as a low pitched horn sound. This is how the alien ship responds when a five-note pattern is played over and over by the scientist in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. See more »

Goofs

Early in the movie one of the minions is vacuuming and answers the front door. The door opens in. Later when Gru is sitting on the front porch and Agnes comes out with an umbrella, the door opens out. See more »

Good animated fun!
23 June 2013 | by MUFCOKSee all my reviews

I went to see this film this morning and found it very enjoyable. I can't really remember the 1st so I can't really compare.

Despicable Me 2 is a fast paced, funny, feel good film that keeps you entertained from the 1st minute to the last. The pace of the film moves along nicely and keeps the audience attention very well. It has many laugh out loud moments, a decent mix of children humour and adult humour.

The main character Gru (voiced by Steve Carell)is likable and funny. The minions however are the main stars, they had me laughing on multiple occasions during the film. The language created for the minions is very well done as they speak in a fictional language but you can always gather what they are saying.

I found the visuals very impressive, it was very colourful and very imaginative. The action scenes we also very well done.

Would definitely recommend seeing this, no matter what your age. I am 22 and thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's not just for kids!
