Animated sequel to entertain local 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.
