This movie is magnificent!
A brilliant film that helped define a genre
I didn’t really have many expectations going into the movie (good or bad), but I actually really enjoyed it. I really liked the characters and the banter between them.
It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
The charming story of an evil genius who attempts to get revenge on another evil genius by adopting 3 orphaned girls. Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) is the complete evil genius, he has the car, he has the killer pet monster, he has a scientist to make evil weaponry, and he even has henchmen (or minions) to do his bidding. When a young upstart of an evil genius gets one over on Gru and steals the shrink ray that Gru has his eye on, a dish of revenge is prepared. Adopting 3 orphaned girls to fulfil his plan Gru never expects that his life will change as much as it does.This is a great film, a beautiful imagination of what animation and creativity can produce. Gru is the perfect Evil Villain, the kind of bad guy you'd expect to be facing off against a James Bond or Batman. Steve Carell voices him with such charm, making him seem awkward but at the same time confidently menacing when required. Other stars have lent their voices to this film to great effect - Jason Segel, Julie Andrews, Will Arnett, Kristen Wigg, I would never have guessed without being told that Russell Brand voices Dr Lothario. The comedy and cute element of the film has to be the minions, they have clearly driven the film and have spawned their own movie and merchandise. Based on trailers, and against other animated films which try to make a cutesy/comedic element of the film the main driving force, it's nice to see that the minions didn't completely steal the show. You still have the film in its own right, with its own weight to drive the show forward - they just really compliment it.I enjoyed this as an adult, and my 2 year old nephew enjoyed watching it too. It's a good family movie with enough adventure, action and humour to appeal to the entire family. I'd rate this as 8 out of 10 and could happily re-watch this anytime.
A very sweet movie I'm certain that many can relate to in terms of 'adoption'. I wasn't adopted, but I spent almost 4 years in a foster home before my real parent came back to get me. So that feeling of abandonment was with me for many years and I saw myself relating to the three little girls in the orphanage. I finally figured out that it didn't matter after all. But I held a grudge for several years that finally dissipated with my own resolve.So warm was this movie! It melts the heart when a father-figure (alone or together with a mate) wants to raise children with proper morality and values. Cool role modeling kind of movie!I have not seen the sequels to this movie yet, but I probably will check them out at some point. The children were adorable, especially during bedtime and at the theme park when trying to win the unicorn stuffed animal, my favorite parts of the film. I recommend this film, especially to all 'wanna-be' dads and children who have come from parental or guardian 'abandonments'.
The first Despicable Me movie kick-started Universal's most lucrative animation franchise, and the first one to have any real meat to it since The Land Before Time, and An American Tail. It's interesting that a film about a super-villain named Gru, voiced by Steve Carell, becomes Universal's biggest franchise since the Jurassic Park Back to the Future film series. Well, it's definitely worthy of being a successful franchise, even if it is just the original film in this case.Despicable Me is a villain-lead film that gets away with some naughtily subtle humor relating to villainy. The story is this: Gru wants to pull of the greatest heist in history, in the form of stealing the Moon! That all changes when these three little girls come into his life; and they're very good at evading top-notch security. So, later on, he decides to adopt them and raise them as his own: at least as accomplices in crime.Despicable Me is a nice little unique trip in the field of animation, and I can see why it's become a beloved classic since its release. Good for the kids, good for adults thanks to its subtleties and yeah, just watchable all-around.
This is one of the most interesting animated films I have seen in recent years. Its not the first time we see a villain portrayed in a comic way on animated movies, but its rare to see one become a real hero (well, in fact, "Megamind", from the same year, tackles the same theme in a different way).The film revolves around the figure of a failed villain who tries to steal the Moon, despite the constant interference of three girls he adopts and the competition with a new rival. The film also has the Minions, the villain's helpers. These adorable creatures speak an incomprehensible language and look curiously like cheese snacks in jeans, but they star in some of the film's most hilarious and absurd moments. The humor is intelligent, not forced or stupid and knows when to give way to the story in order to keep the film coherent and with a good rhythm. All the characters were very well thought out. Computer animation, the basis of animations, has been carefully done, is very pleasing to eye of the public and inspires a pleasant sense of realism.
