Despicable Me 2 | Ratings & Reviews

"Winning the affections of family audiences, Illumination Studios scored big in the Box Office with Despicable Me. Intent on not changing a thing, the sequel delivers the same brand of silly-n-sweet, with those manic minions gaining more screen time in the same way Scrat did with each Ice Age instalment."

"While not quite as charming or unique as the original, comes awfully close, extending co-directors Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin's delightfully silly sensibility to a bit larger universe."


"The minions give good mayhem and the twig-armed animation’s lovely. Despite the coolest submarine-car since Bond’s Lotus Esprit, though, Despicable Me 2 is light on gadgets – and surprises, too."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Its repetitive qualities are beyond reproach. Every bit as amiable and disposable as its predecessor, it recycles everything from slapstick gags to its own voice cast."

Time OutTime Out

"Nothing here to challenge anything from the Pixar golden age, but Despicable Me 2 is a sweet-natured family film."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"You can wish for a tighter plot, yet aside from the entirely useless 3D, there's little reason to be angry with Despicable Me 2."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"While the new edition doesn't quite catch that inspired spark, there's still plenty to enjoy here courtesy of those zippy visuals and a pitch-perfect voice cast."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It falters in the middle and hesitates unnecessarily in setting up the love story, but Gru still has charm and kids will adore the Minions."
