In one scene in Gru's lair the Minions are standing in front of a big computer machine with a green screen. The screen is actually displaying the Page R (the music sequencer screen) from a Fairlight CMI synthesiser series II which cost around £30,000 when originally launched back in 1982. It is unclear from the brief appearance in the movie what is being played back on the screen. See more »

I do reckon that at 31 years - i am not the target audience of this movie. There are of course movies that address both, children and adults alike - but this is not one of those.
The plot was ... pretty stupid. Not stupid in a comedic way - but stupid in a "that makes no sense" way. There was no notable character progression, the minions were a snooze and the newly introduced characters made no sense. Shedding light on Grus past might have been interesting, especially since there was the scene of a young Gru in the minions movie - but instead we got a kind of family reunion with little to no impact at all. So they just got to know each other - and they like each other .. well, good. Thats it.
The villain - the most important part of such a movie - was rather weak, too for my taste. Memorable in design and behaviour, but rather weak in terms of motivation and threat. (considering Gru had to deal with a genius villain that was trying to steal the moon in the first movie ... the villain in the 3rd was just a substantial step down)
Jokes fell mostly flat - but there weren't many for an adult audience.
I d say - a nice movie for kids, but in contrast to some of the classic pixar movies ... not for adults.
