Our Score
This animated sequel finds the no-longer-despicable former super-criminal Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) wallowing in domestic bliss with the trio of orphan girls he adopted in the first movie - until he's faced with a new evil threat. Drafted by the Anti-Villain League (whose stuffy boss is voiced by Steve Coogan), Gru has to call upon his cunning of old to scupper the plans of a mysterious, shady figure intent on world domination. Aware of how important Gru's little yellow helpers, the Minions, were to the original film, directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud place them centre stage, at one point turning them against their beloved master. It's a nifty twist that brings added jeopardy to an already exciting plot, while the retro-futuristic designs and inventive gadgets add further texture to a spectacular romp brimming with laughs.


A reformed criminal mastermind who has abandoned his wicked ways for a life of fatherhood and jam-making helps a secret agent to bring one of his fellow evil geniuses to justice. The villain in question has stolen a dangerous experimental serum with the power to turn harmless animals into ravening monsters. Animated comedy sequel, with the voices of Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig.
