The third chapter in the life of Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable wide-eyed little girls and the minions, sees them embarking on a new adventure that involves a dancing villain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker), Gru,s blonde twin brother Dru (Carell) and a unicorn. Also, having given up his 'villainy',will Gru partake in a heist to keep his family tradition alive? REVIEW: The latest instalment of Ilumination's hit franchise is the Knight and Day and Mission Impossible (Tom Cruise starrers) of animation films. It has truckloads of action to keep you entertained and a bit of drama to evoke emotions. Fast-paced and loaded with adventure, this one rarely has a dull moment. On the flip side, you miss the heart to heart conversation between Gru and the girls that caught your fancy in the first film. To sum it up, this one's an outlandish and overstuffed sequel that has too many things going on all at once. It comprises a heist, Gru's discovery of his long lost twin brother Dru, bubble gum firing bad guy, minions displaying their singing skills etc. What it lacks emotionally, it tries to make up in the form of constant action sequences. While it's not easy to make an exciting instalment with the same template, Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin manage it to a certain extent, thanks to Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig's fantastic and consistent voice contribution. Though not as endearing as the first or funny as the second, Despicable 3 achieves what it sets out to-entertain the kids. Unlike the previous films, this predominantly caters to the younger crowd. Though lacking the warmth of the original, if you don't mind too many Grus, guns, bubblegums and robots, this colourful, cutesy film can be a fun one time watch.
1. Steve Carell said that 'Despicable Me 3' may be his last film as the voice of Gru. However, Carell stated that if he was asked to do a cameo in any future 'Minions' sequels, he happily would. 2. This is the first Illumination Entertainment film to be produced in a 2.39:1 widescreen aspect ratio; all of the company's previous films were produced in 1.85:1. 3. The diamond featured in the first trailer is a parody to the 'Pink Panther' diamond. 4. Trey Parker released 'South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut' on June 30, 1999, and this movie is being released exactly 18 years later, with him playing as Balthazar Bratt.
