Despicable Me


Had the chance to catch the screening of Despicable Me last night thanks to Pei Li
(Who probably will kill me when she sees this)


Sypnosis ;

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes

Storyline wise, pretty "Universal". Nothing much can be said about it as it's mostly aimed at the younger audience, but I like all the little details they put in like "Gru-Ray" and some others which I can't really recall atm.

There's some scene in the movie which was put in just for the 3-D effect and does not really contribute much to the storyline except for a few laughs. And again, I don't see why all the animation studios are jumping on the 3-D bandwagon and I'll probably be bitching about it till the whole 3-D bandwagon stops rolling.

Character wise, everyone would probably agree that the little yellow Minions was the show stealer like how the Penguins were in Madagascar.

6/10 +1 for the Silly/Goofy yellow minions. Don't expect anything deep from this besides the usual 'Disney'esque drama.

Speaking of which, while waiting for the movie to start, saw the trailer to this movie and the nerdy me inside is really intrigued and interested to catch this one. Though it kinda has that "Scary Movie 1-6" spoof feel to it :

Tell me what you think about it at the comments below :)
