"PA POY! PA POY! PA POY! POPPADOM”
The pesky yellow misfit with denim and goggles comes numbers are back with more laughs, silly antics and whole lot of evil menacing schemes which bound to be foiled by their bumbling antics. Directed by both Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud whom had previously brought us ‘Despicable Me’, they are back with the string of voice cast to reprise their respective role. Steve Carell will be back to voiced as Gru, a super villain turned father after the events from the first film with Russell Brand as Dr. Nefario, a elderly hearing impaired gadget’s man to wreak more chaos in this sequel or prolly not. Anyway by the looks of the marketing trailers, it sets to be fun filled laughter all the way, along with loveable, bumbling minions.
Back again, in Yellow.. Pa Poy! Pa Poy !
A strange looking craft lifted the entire base up in the sky and jetted off into the horizon. Gru had hanged his former super villain status after the events of the first movie and now became a father figure after having previously saved his three adopted daughters, Margo, Edith, and Agnes from archrival super-villain Vector. Throwing a birthday party for Agnes, the youngest child, in which he had to, impersonates a Fairy Princess to save her from disappointment as the initial performer couldn’t attend. Much to Gru's chagrin, his neighbour, Jillian, begins pushing Gru to meet with her single acquaintances for a date which is a disaster during his flashback when he is young. While taking out the trash, he was approached by Lucy Wilde, an Anti-Villain League agent, which kidnapped him along with two of his minions and taken to the underwater Anti-Villain League Headquarters.
The AVL HQ, led by Silas Ramsbottom whom had requested Gru’s assistance to track down a new super-villain who has stolen a research laboratory and a chemical compound labelled PX-41 that would transform lifeforms into invincible mutant killing machines upon administering the chemical into the system. Gru refuses simply because he has other commitment and responsibilities now. Lucy was impressed by his work as a villain (Noting the events from the first film) before giving him her number and urging him to contact her if he changes mind.
Subsequent events would prompt Gru to help the AVL and Lucy is assigned as Gru's partner. He suspects one of the owners of a restaurant, named Eduardo, in the mall to be an old super-villain he knew several years previously, called El Macho, who supposedly died after an accident involving an active volcano. Later the chain of events will put Gru and his minions to the ultimate test but will they persevere or not?
Mission, Impeccable Me.. 2
Not so often that a hit animated film's sequel would surpass the original film as it takes juice off from the previous and added new element wouldn’t help much. However Despicable Me 2 is one of those rare cases where it hits the chords of many quarters. From the inception onscreen to the end of the film, Despicable Me 2 is a fast paced, fun film that never ceases to be entertaining.
This film has you laughing quite often, contains humour that both kids and adults can appreciate, and had at least one moment that was worthy of clapping out loud to. The character development is to be praised as Gru’s character transcended from the super villain to a protective father figure and the ever loveable minions whom hilarious antics would tickle you silly that take centre stage in the movie as is the warmth and soul that Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud had placed into the film. This film would leave you feeling joyful and happy for all the characters and the new direction it is headed. Though the bad guy is so easily defeat by just spraying antidote, it still a super hilarious movie!!!!!!! It is definitely not to be missed and catch in the cinema nearest to you today.
