Rating:
PG
In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru, planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!). Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

    There's nothing like a little world domination to melt the most dastardly evildoer's heart. Since villains so often steal the show in animation, Despicable Me smartly turns the who...

    The film throws so much ersatz cleverness and overdone emotion at the audience that we end up more worn out than entertained.

    I knew this film would be one of my most favorites the first time that I started watching it. Superb CGI and 3-D in certain points of the film made it have a good job of feeling like the movie was real life.

    7.0
    Despicable Me was a nice little film that tried to straddle the line between action and family. Ultimately, it managed to be great for children while giving their parents a few cheap laughs while they were at it. In terms of plot, nothing particularly outrageous or amazing. The animation is great in a cartoony sense, and the 3D was a nice effect, especially with the large groups of minions. I'd recommend seeing this movie if you have kids and want a nice family movie for all of you to somewhat enjoy.moreless
