Despicable Me

Universal studio’s jumps on the bandwagon with its first 3D movie in the animated, family film Despicable Me. Steve Carell lends his voice as a super villain named Drew who is in the process of stealing the moon to out do his nemesis Vector with the voice of Jason Segel who had just stole a pyramid. (Sounds corny but give it a chance) Unfortunately Vector has a shrink ray gun so Drew adopts 3 little orphan girls who sell cookies to somehow lure Vector to open the door for his favorite cookies. This film is really inventive and creative along with clever dialogue and comic relief. It also has a good pop soundtrack along with being packed with colorful characters. Besides the cute little girls the story has little yellow minions that run around working and applauding everything Drew does and most of all looking like they want their own film. (Where can I find some of those minions to applaud my great work?) This should be a crowd pleaser but it’s not as good as some of the other animated 3D films that came out this year. I think it just tries to hard at times with to much sentimentality and a script that is a little disjointed. Even though it had a few minor flaws I really enjoyed it and I’m giving it a B rating.

This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
