Minions

Animated laugher, following the history of the little minions from Despicable Me. At the dawn of time, starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters - from T. Rex to Napoleon - the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably too old for Minions. That’s the sad reality of the spin-off from the Despicable Me franchise. The banana-loving Minions have been granted centre stage for a film – a prequel in fact – of their own, and the result is far more kids-only than either of those featuring Gru.

Stronger on concept than story, Brian Lynch’s Minions script emphasizes scale over quantity.

A spin-off so busy, witty and all-round entertaining you won't have time to pine for the absent Steve Carell.

The Minions have busted out of the 'Despicable Me' franchise and gone rogue in this berserk slice of slapstick silliness.

The story [lacks] a clear narrative or emotional throughline to connect all of the film’s setpieces.

Fast, frenetic, gleefully silly fun is the order of the day here.

Farty, burpy, fall-y over fun tied to a pretty inconsequential plot. Your kids will explode with joy.
