Source of story The characters and themes from the previous movies.
Writer/s Script Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio
Director Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin, Eric Guillon
Starring Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews,
Elevator Pitch Gru, now married to Lucy, is expelled from the Anti-Villain League for failing to overcome the latest villain, Balthazar Bratt, but is contacted by his long lost twin Dru who wants to continue the family tradition of villainy. Together they take on the new villain and maybe more.
Content Balthazar Bratt uses his main weapon which appears to be magic chewing gum. The twins get together in Freedonia, their country of origin where quaint local customs are in evidence. The minions desert Gru, take part in a talent show and end up in prison. Some of Gru’s wild transport systems are used.
A View It may be that the minions have become an entity on their own, and so this movie tended to play them down, with an adverse effect on the result I think. The high point is their appearance in the talent show, and this alone might be worth the admission price. The rest just a bit lacklustre, with at least one subplot patently intended to fill in time, and actually our one hour and thirty minutes in the cinema included the trailers for other films.
