Minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a super-villain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.

These little guys were the highlights of Despicable Me films, so when I heard they were getting their own movie, I was stoked!

I was not disappointed.

I had a little bit of hesitancy over the fact that these guys don’t speak any language known to man so how are they going to have a whole movie about them when no one can understand what the hell they are saying. Well it’s mostly a combination of being narrated by Geoffrey Rush, jokes, and generally having an idea of the topic.

It funny with laugh out loud moments and has jokes for adults and children, awesome voice actors (Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and Allison Janney) and beautiful, smooth animation. Also worth a mention is the awesome soundtrack, much like the previous films.

It was awesome to see them from their creation to looking for a master throughout the prehistoric ages, dark ages through to the ‘60s and all the different masters they had and their eventual demise.

Minions is an awesome movie with 91 minutes of lighthearted fun and if you are a fan of the first two Despicable Me films, then you should watch this. I will be definitely be buying it on Blu-ray on Day 1.
