Ever since the dawn of time, the Minions have lived to serve the most despicable of masters. From the T-Rex to Napoleon, the easily distracted tribe has helped the biggest and the baddest of villains. Now, join protective leader Kevin, teenage rebel Stuart, and lovable little Bob on a global road trip. They'll earn a shot to work for a new boss, the world's first female supervillain, and try to save all of Minionkind from annihilation.Written by
Some of the Minionese words are taken from Indonesian such as "terima kasih" (thank you), "kemari" (come here), "yang mulia" (your highness) and others. This is mainly because Pierre Coffin's mother is an Indonesian writer, N.H Dini. See more »
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 »
Minions. Minions have been on this planet far longer than we have. They go by many names. Dave, Carl, Paul, Mike- Oh, that one is Norbert. He's an idiot. They're all different, but all share the same goal:... To serve the most despicable master thru could find.

The Universal Pictures fanfare is sung by Minions. One of them holds a note until he loses his breath and passes out on the Illumination Entertainment title card. See more »
I saw Minions the day it came out and there are some things I I love about this film but at the same time I do have some issues with it.
1. It was really good to see something focusing on the Minions. Audiences for a long time have wanted to see something revolving around them and when we got it, there was no disappointment.
2. Scarlet Overkill acts and sounds like a Bond movie villain but for a kids movie. Which as a fan of James Bond films, I loved very much.
3.The British stereotypes in this film are brilliant and just downright hilarious, and mind you this is coming from a British guy himself. It also felt like they were poking fun at the stereotypes as well.
1. The film takes about 20 minutes to get underway. I honestly thought I was going to hate this film at first but the moment the Minions get to Villain Con then things improve drastically.
2. It's obvious that quite a lot of the jokes in the movie are aimed at children. This annoyed me at some points but there were also jokes and not just funny but hilarious scenes in there for everyone to enjoy as well.
Final rating: 8/10
