MINIONS Reviews

Post by Lone-Star on Fri Dec 11, 2015 8:32 pm

KING BOB!!!!! Wink

Here's my review for the latest Despicable Me-inspired film:

Spoiler:

Pros:
Humorous in multiple ways. The Minions have a way of being hilariously cute and stupid at the same time. Love some of the satire of England, like the police chase in which the "bobbies" were sipping tea while chasing the runaway Queen's Coach. Razz  No doubt the British will be offended, but a little across-the-pond culture jabbing is fun. Very Happy  LOL. I like the neutral/slightly sarcastic approach the films makers took on the hippie culture...most films glorify it, but Minions mostly made fun of it. Wink

Cons:
It was a stupid film to some extent. That's one of the reasons it was so funny. Razz  Of course, there were a variety of naughty points...nothing unavoidable, but still unnecessary.

All in all, I give the movie a healthy 4 stars. Smile

I think that KING BOB scene was my favourite part of the film.  Oh, yeah, and the scene with the "sweet" family who picked them up on the road. Razz

What do you mean the British will be offended? Razz We invented our own humour you know spelt with a u. Most British love taking the mick of someone or another country so we don't mind when movies do it to us.

I saw this one shortly after it came out with a friend... it was a bit childish for me, I guess. Maybe not even childish, I just felt kind of underwhelmed by it. That's probably just because I'm sick and tired of minion memes online, though. Razz

Andy,
  It WAS childish.  Plugged-in pointed that out, along with it's lack of DEPTH. That, on top of the minion memes, is probably what made you dislike it. Razz
That's why I liked the Despicable Me films better, because they had a least a little depth to them.  The Minions film kinda felt like a film producer wanted to squeeze as many laughs as possible from a bunch of middle-school kids. Razz
