youmatter-66542 - 6 January 2023 Forgettable characters, everything else is good The thing that minions the rise of gru did that made me forget the movie was the characters. Nobody really mentioned this but the side villains in the movie barely talk, they are just known to be aggressive and grunt a lot, just doing as the main villain is told. It's so boring and makes me think they never really cared about the characters of the movie. Young Gru never talked too much as I thought in the movie, and it's supposed to be about him growing up.
However the rest of the movie was great, it is very nice seeing the old classic despicable me references and jokes. I loved the amount of times universal and illumination played along with the "Five tickets to Minions: The Rise Of Gru please" meme.
The only reason why I rated this half the stars is because they didn't care about the main thing, the characters.
matheusswsantos - 6 November 2022 Not the best, but not bad for children Honestly the worst of the series. It became more focused for younger children than the previous ones. It had potential with some characters and jokes, but in overall it was too childish. It's more for 7,8 year olds while the others could be enjoyed by the whole family having elements for adults, teens and children. This is a step back in my opinion. Maybe it's an end of an era of minions.
I just hope producers don't become too much like Disney and keep holding on the overall audience instead of targeting only a group. As parents, we also want to enjoy what our kids watch and not just stay there as a companionship.
