To See Or Not To See

I have changed my mind back and forth about watching The Minions 3D animation. It is not that I don't like the little yellow guys, I actually love them a lot and I thought they were a great and fun part of Despicable Me, but I was thinking how fun can a movie be about some creatures who only blab some noises and not say articulated words.

So, today I finally decided to see the Minions and I must say it was a great decision. I didn't leave home with high expectations, thinking that I will probably return disappointed, but I've actually enjoyed the movie. It was fun and unpredictable and you should definitely go see it if you haven't already done it. Especially if you have children because I am absolutely sure they will love it.

The Storyline

I knew from the trailer that the action revolves around the Queen's crown so of course I was expecting to play around this subject all movie long. But to my pleasant surprise it was much more than this. They didn't chase the crown around for 90 minutes, but actually had a lot of subject and a nice flow to the story.

I also enjoyed the unpredictability of the story, not expecting a lot of stuff to happen, and for an adult watching a children's movie this is important.

As for the minions, they are as sweet as you can imagine and besides the gibberish we all know of they also had some real words, in French, Spanish and English, and it was also easy to understand what they meant even when they didn't use real words. So another plus here.

The story begins with the description of the minions' road through history, as seen in the movie's trailer, and continues with Stuart, Bob and Kevin, three minions who decide to look for the world's biggest villain to follow and obey.

They end up at a Villain-Con in Orlando where they meet Scarlet Overkill, the first woman villain, and they end up working for her while they call the rest of the group to join them.

Scarlet ask the minions to steal Queen Elizabeth's crown and by the misfortune of some events Bob end's up king of England and Scarlet feels betrayed by them, so she starts her vendetta. Even if the minions offer her the crown she still feels like they need to be punished and puts them in torture room ... which turns out to be a really fun part of the movie.

I recommend this animation which I found so cute and funny

All Is Well When Ends Well

Just in case you haven't seen the movie by now and you don't know whether to go or not, I am not going to spoil the whole line of events and tell you about it here.

Of course that things end just as they should to, as it always does in any animation, but the way it gets there you should see for yourself, it is really worth it.

So, go to the cinema, buy a bag of popcorn and a juice and watch this beautiful movie.

The only "bad" thing about it is that even if it is a 3D movie it could have just as well be a 2D one since it has no elements to create a great 3D experience. You basically feel like watching a 2D story with some heavy glasses on when nothing is flying towards you or anything similar to justify the glasses.

Kids will probably love it no matter what, but I just analyze it through the eyes of an adult critic. But except this little thing the movie is just wonderful and you should see it.

      Sorry to hear that paichece. Maybe you will be able to see it while it is still at the cinema. And if you can't, then the TV is a good option too :)

      Have a nice day.
