A Quick Review: Minions

29 June 2015

I went and saw Minions on the weekend with Josh, because we both enjoy animated movies, and we seriously loved both Despicable Me movies. This movie goes back in time, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the more little minions begun their search to find the most despicable villain that they can serve. But things never seem to go as planned. 

After settling and believing they'll never find a true villain to follow their lives become dull. So three brave little minions Kevin, Stuart and Bob, set off on their own mission, to find the evilest of them all! Their venture takes them all the way to Orlando, Florida, right to an underground convention. Villain Con. 

At the start of the movie Josh and I were a tad unsure how it was going to go, seeing as the main characters do not speak english. Instead they speak a form of Minionese which is basically gibberish with random words in other languages thrown in, some words are in English. 

But this was not an issue, the minions are very visual characters, and there is plenty of story development through the voices of the narrator and the human characters. 

We both found the film incredibly enjoyable for an animated movie, which we pretty much always like anyway. But still different from the Despicable Me franchise that we all know and love. If you like this type of movies though then I would definitely recommend. The minions are the cutest evil henchmen you will ever come across. 
Do you like animated films? Do you want to watch Minions?

  1. I want to see this! It seems so cute! I always liked the movies where it's like they're not speaking English cause my grandma (who only speaks Spanish) can follow along and enjoy it too. =-)

    This might be the next movie on my watch list. 😊

  2. I've never been a huge fan of minions, so I'm not sure I'd actually go out and see it. I'd definitely watch it on YouTube or something though!

  7. I really enjoyed Despicable Me, but thought the sequel was pretty boring. Maybe this one will be better.

  23. I enjoyed the first Despicable Me very much! but I wasn't that excited for Despicable Me 2. The minions are my favorite part, so I was really happy to hear that they were going to have their own movie! but I was also wary because I feel like the creators are just unnecessarily prolonging the series so that they can sell more merchandise. I'll probably watch Minions when it becomes available for streaming :D I hope you enjoyed the film! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  25. I actually am a little worried about this movie because they decided to veer the franchise off and make minions their own thing but your review is restoring my confidence

  26. I went to see it too and it is so cute and funny loved it!


  27. To be honest, it doesn't quite feel like there's enough plot or story to sustain this film.
