Storyline

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 Universal Pictures

Goofs

The three Minions duck into a phone box while being chased. The phone shown is a standard wall-mounted phone with a separate coin box. Such equipment was designated for private premises (pubs, schools etc) and a public phone box in that era would typically have had a single-piece all-metal unit. See more »

Quotes

Stuart the Minion: [shoots a water tower with a gun]
Walter Nelson: Okay, who did that?
Kevin the Minion: Stuart, Stuart!
Stuart the Minion: But, but...
Walter Nelson: That was awesome!
Stuart the Minion: Heh heh, thank you.

Accurate Documentary
11 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

You'd be hard-pressed to find a historical account that acknowledges the influence (much less the existence of) the Minions throughout time. No matter how many textbooks are produced and released each year, almost ZERO of them note the presence of this incredibly powerful minority group.

Well, where history has silenced the Minions, let this surprisingly accurate documentary speak volumes. I found no embellishments of history throughout this 91-minute feature. It would have been easy to swing the pendulum of power to overemphasize the history of the Minions as it relates to major world events, but the filmmakers didn't go for the easy shots. They simply told the truth, and what we are left with are the clear facts of what really happened to the dinosaurs, the cavemen, and--what I'm sure will be most controversially-- the true lineage of royalty in England. Very bold.

If this doesn't win the Oscar for Documentary Feature, we will truly know which side of history the Academy stands on.
