Despicable Me (2010)


Movie Review

Lovely, humorous movie about the underlying themes of ‘belonging’ and family. I thought that the movie brilliantly depicted these themes in a funny yet heartfelt way. Here, we actually find ourselves routing for the super villain; Gru and watch how his heart of stone, transforms into a marshmallow after the entrance of three adorable little orphaned girls. Emphasizing that so called ‘ bad people’ can actually become good. The highlight of the movie for me, were the adorable minions,which I am sure everyone will enjoy, though they can not actually speak English, or are not humans, we find ourselves still being able to identify and understand them as well as feel with them. The movie was a fun watch and I would definitely recommend that you join in on the fun.
