'Despicable Me 3' Review
13 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

'Despicable Me 3,' is, in summary, a fine but not amazing film that fails to match the wit of the first.

'Despicable Me,' was released in July of 2010. Developed by writer Sergio Pablos (an animator that worked on numerous Disney films such as 'Tarzan') it was originally titled 'Evil Me.' The film was supported by an ingenious marketing campaign, including the release of a Best Buy app exclusively created to translate the Minion language during the film. It was predictably, an immediate hit with parents and children alike for its relatively clever humor, likable lead, and of course, the infamous minions. Its sequel, released 2013 of July, encouraged even more enthusiastic marketing, such as a blimp coined 'Despicablimp' which toured for six months in North America.

Now an international sensation with a significant following, 'Despicable Me's minions earned their collectively loathed and demonized spin-off, 'Minions.' Although beloved by younger demographics, it was almost universally hated because of its bloated exterior mixed with an empty emotional core.

2017, the year of half-hearted sequels ('Cars 3,' 'Pirates 5,' Transformers 5...) is about to welcome a new member, the third 'Despicable Me.'

BENEFITS

The animation is very stylistic and unique. Rather than aim for realism, such as other animation companies, Illumination goes for its own ridiculous, yet creative CGI technique(s).

The villain, Bathazar Bratt (Trey Parker) is amazingly campy and simultaneously enjoyable. A failed 80's TV star, Bratt's obsession (the show he starred in as a kid) is shown several times. You, along with the animators, can delight in the cheesiness of these flashbacks, that echo very similar sentiments to the American 1980's.

DETRACTIONS

The film is trying to get too much done. There is a subplot involving Agnes (Nev Scharrel) and Edith (Dana Gaier) trying to find a real unicorn. Lucy (Kristen Wiig) isn't fitting into her new surrogate mother role. The now unemployed minions have hilarious antics to show. Seriously, they are hilarious. In the midst of all this, you remember that Gru (Steve Carell) has a brother, and that they're trying to retrieve a stolen diamond from Bratt (the seemingly main conflict of the film).

There is not much to say about this film. Essentially, you get what you (hopefully) paid for; a ridiculous kid's romp that isn't great, or even good, but colorful enough to occupy your 6 year old niece's attention as you use your phone.

6/10
