Minions Movie Review


By definition, a minion is considered to be a loyal servant and the Minion movie is definitely what it’s all about. The movie opens with a dialogue, told by Geoffrey Rush, about the history of minions and their quest to find a new, most evil master to serve. While the movie is supposed to be for kids, don’t be fooled. If your child is a little squeamish, the implied demise of a cartoon dinosaur falling into a river of hot lava may not be for them, but most kids love the comical demise of each of the minion’s masters, always caused by the Minions,themselves.

The Minions have traveled from prehistoric times up to current day trying to find a new evil master. Their travels take them to the safety of a cave where their lack of purpose for serving evil, will surely lead to their own demise. To prevent the end of Minion civilization, minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob set out to find the group a new evil master. During their travels they learn about the Villain Con to be held in Orlando. While attending the event they take part in a contest to become henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first female supervillain. After winning the contest they are tasked by Scarlet, and her inventor husband Herb, to steal the royal crown from the Queen of England. A perfect job for the Minions, or is it?

The storyline takes us through the romps of Stewart, Kevin and Bob as they attempt to steal the crown. Also included in the storyline, to a much lesser extent, is the travel of the other minions to get to London to join their comrades.

Finding out the names of the voiceover actors can often ruin a movie for me, preferring instead, to get lost in the illusion of the characters rather than picturing the actors themselves. Sandra Bullock, however, does an excellent voiceover for Scarlet Overkill. Pierre Coffin is the voice of the Minions.
I had absolutely no desire to see Minions, however my adult children really wanted to, so we took my grandson to see it. Not only did the toddler sit quietly with a big smile enjoying his popcorn, they all giggled from enjoyment throughout the entire movie. I must admit, I chuckled quite a bit as well.

I would give this movie a four out of five stars, just for the entertainment value alone.

Details:

Rated: PG – A movie clearly intended for kids does contain violence, gun-like items and bombs.

Run time: 96 minutes

Director: Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin

I purchased tickets for this movie with my own funds.
