JR's Movie Reviews - DESPICABLE ME 3

Despicable Me 3
JR's Rating: 8️⃣ (8.0 out of 10Awesome)
"The Search for the Candy-Eating Unicorn"

➕ The Minions (Cuter As Ever)
➕ Gru's Twin, Dru
➕ The Search for the Unicorn
➕ Use of Pop Music from the 80s & 90s
➕ Minions in Prison Scene
➖ Story With Less Depth & Emotion
➖ Lack of Heart That The Two Prequels Had

You'll love this movie for three major things, 1) The Minions (of course, they're the most lovable), 2) Gru and Dru (and their battle against Balthazar Bratt) and 3) Agnes (and her search for the candy-eating unicorn, truly a cute moment). Despicable Me 3 follows three stories as I have specified in my introduction. First, we see Gru meeting his twin brother Dru on a quest to continue their family's legacy of villainry. Gru suffers from job firing from his spy agency and decides to partner with his twin brother to bring the diamond that Balthazar Bratt stole back to where it belongs. Second, we see the minions' rebellion against Gru not anymore being involved in villainry. They immediately regret their decision and go back to Gru. Third, we see Agnes on her search and capture of a unicorn. But the question is, will she really see and catch one. The animation is cute and amazing but the movie lacks what the first two Despicable Me movies had - a story that has depth and emotion. This one makes good combination of mixed yet understandable, complementing and noncovoluted storylines but fails to capture my heart in the process. I was hoping for something special from this movie that I could reminisce and recapture as I go out of the cinema but unfortunately, none. It's like the Minions, where the movie is for purely entertainment but this time around it was better. The first Despicable Me still stands as the best of the three films. Not a masterpiece, but the animation was cute and amazing that it deserves positive credit.
