De­spi­ca­ble Me 3

FOR THE SEC­OND week in a row we’re con­fronted with an an­i­mated film we don’t know so well, but is in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar. Un­like Cars 3, how­ever, we think De­spi­ca­ble Me 3 has more go­ing for it. Not only does it have Steve Carell and Kris­ten Wiig in the prin­ci­pal roles, it also pos­sesses every­body’s love­able lit­tle yel­low war­blers, the Min­ions.

In this in­stall­ment there’s quite a lot go­ing on. Gru is firmly in the Anti Vil­lain League un­til he is asked to leave for fail­ing to cap­ture su­per vil­lain Bratt. Out of the AVL, he fails to re­turn to vil­lainy caus­ing the Min­ions to leave. Lucy, Gru’s wife is strug­gling to come to terms with be­ing Gru’s chil­dren’s step mum and, if that weren’t enough, Gru’s up­beat twin brother Dru comes onto the scene look­ing to learn how to be a vil­lain.

So many sto­ry­lines means this episode has been deemed a tad chaotic, lead­ing to less favourable re­views than the pre­vi­ous two. It still should be a laugh though and a de­cent way to pass the time in­doors. IM Db has it at 6.7 Trivia: this film also stars South Park’s Trey Parker.
