Minions: The Rise of Gru [2022]

Minions: The Rise of Gru

More Despicable me than Minions, Minions: The Rise of Gru hits most of the right spots for every Minions fan.

After running so long, a franchise can be exhausted. However, Illumination, the studio behind Despicable Me, is still finding decent ways to bring back our infamously beloved Minions back to our screens.

Five movie later, Minions: The Rise of Gru did the unthinkable. It gave us a movie better than its predecessor. Don’t get me wrong. It’s nowhere near the level of the original trilogy, but The Rise of Gru managed to keep me entertained mainly thanks to its new characters. Specifically, two of them.

The first character to mention is Master Chow voiced by the amazing Michelle Yeoh. Her appearance may be less than 10 minutes, but her characters brings a new drive to the story and the effects last all the way till the end.

Second, and this might sound weird. OTTO! The new chubbier minion. Yes, he might be different, but that’s exactly why he’s so enjoyable. He knows he made a mistake and does his best to correct it. Loved every single second of his screen time.

Don’t listen to the critics saying that the franchise is aging. It might be, but the new injection of retro chic and disco vibe is so refreshing, I can give them a break regarding some…mis-steps.
