An­i­mated se­quel to en­ter­tain lo­cal kids

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY KIDS -

DE­SPI­CA­BLE Me 2 is back by pop­u­lar de­mand at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre th­ese school hol­i­days with the first screen­ing on Mon­day morn­ing at 10am.

The 2010 suc­cess of De­spi­ca­ble Me was some­what of a sur­prise to many.

It has just enough goofi­ness to sat­isfy the lit­tle ones, enough higher level hu­mour to keep the teens in­ter­ested and enough sen­ti­ment to cap­ture the hearts of adults.

What’s even more im­pres­sive is that vir­tu­ally ev­ery key player is back and the main char­ac­ters are voiced by the same ac­tors.

Steve Carell once again takes the lead role with Gru and Rus­sell Brand sounds off as Dr. Ne­fario.

Gru’s mys­te­ri­ous lit­tle min­ions, who aid him and work to com­plete his ev­ery com­mand, main­tain the comic back­bone to the movie.

Su­per spy Lucy Wilde re­cruits Gru into the Anti-Vil­lain League to stop an evil new vil­lain with a mag­netic ship, a de­vi­ous plan and of course, a path to­ward de­struc­tion.

De­spi­ca­ble Me 2 is fun and keeps viewer in­ter­est the en­tire time.

The script isn’t quite as strong as the orig­i­nal and it lacks much of the sen­ti­men­tal­ity that drew adults to the first, but it is al­ways en­ter­tain­ing and amaz­ingly an­i­mated.

Mon­sters Univer­sity is show­ing to­day at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre from 2pm, and 11pm on Fri­day.
