Despicable Me, Battle of the Super villains
It is a battle of super villains as funny man Steve Carrell (Evan Almighty, Get Smart, Dinner for Schmucks) stars as a warm hearted villain Gru in Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud’s 2010 animation Despicable Me.
Adding to the entourage of voice cast are Jason Segel (Gulliver’s Travels) as the super nerdy villain Vector, Russel Brand as the old genius Dr. Nefario, Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly, Josh & Drake) voices Margo, Dana Gier as Edith and Elsie Fisher as Agnes.
Gru is a villain whose pride is injured when an unknown villain steals the Pyramid of Giza and replaces it with an inflatable replica. The news of the theft causes the countries all over the world to increase protection around their heritages.
Not to be outdone, Gru along with Dr. Nefario and his army of yellow minions envisions a plan to steal the moon and hold the world ransom. Unfortunately, Vector knows about this and will try to take the glory of this planned heist. To complicate matters he [Gru] adopts three little girls from an orphanage to help further his cause but it turns out they are more than he can handle.
I was a bit skeptical at first about this film because the characters had not resemblance to actual cast members and there is no way of actually telling unless you wait for the end credits, which probably makes this animation a worthwhile experience.
Although, I enjoyed the film, I still am confused as to how Vector managed to steal the Pyramid of Giza and moves it to his lair and where the minions came from. When the girls first see the minions, Gru lies and says they are his cousins. Where they created by Dr, Nefario?
Anyway, if you are going to watch this film then I suggest preparing to have your heart stolen as 3 little girls pull the greatest heist of them all – they steal Gru’s heart.
