The ex-supervillain Gru is now adjusting to the family life and the world of human interactions. An anti-villain league invites him to investigate the case wherein animals are to be transformed into complete purple monsters through procedure tests.
There is more to this movie than words can describe. Despicable Me 2 is really enjoyable to watch, more entertaining than its first sequel can ever be. It is about Mr. Gru, who, after getting out of his shell, is on the process of learning human relationships more through his love for his adopted daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes and through his newly found love with Lucy, his co-detective. It is indeed touching seeing him as the children’s father figure (kissing his daughters good night, and being overprotective towards Margo, who is being seduced by Antonio, El Macho’s teenage son), and the romantic Gru and Lucy tandem gives chills. Other interesting parts in the movie include Agnes’ cute yet baby-ish attitude, Margo’s not-so-love encounter with Antonio, funny and wacky acts, the presence of superficial ladies who are worth to be mocked upon, the full-loaded action and detective adventures in arresting El Macho, and not to forget, more Minion scenes.
“When the world needed a hero, they called a villain.”
Overall Rating 5/5 stars (10/10)
