Movie Reviews

Movie Review from

Gru (Steve Carell) rotagonist of this good-natured 3D CGI ’toon, is a master-villain out to steal the moon. Though slimmer and beakier, he’s close to Grimly Feendish, a Brit comic great (“The Rottenist Crook In The World”) created by Leo Baxendale in 1964. Like Grimly, he is bald, has a long black coat and stary eyes, rubs his hands in malevolent glee, is more ambitious than ept, relies on minions who let him down, and enjoys petty wickedness as much as grand Blofeldian schemes.

It helps to be super if you’re a super-villain. But while he may have the underground HQ, the legion of minions and the nefarious schemes, Gru (Steve Carell) is a rather ordinary megalomaniac: a suburban grouch continually bested by his cocky rival Vector (Jason Segel) who can’t even interest his mother (Dame Julie Andrews) in his diabolical plans. That might change if he succeeds in his latest plot, an outlandish attempt to make off with the Moon. To do so, he’ll need to recover a stolen shrink gun his nemesis has pinched – something he will only manage with the aid of three orphaned kids whose Girl Scout cookies are all Vector will open his front door for.

Non-traditional heroes have become a staple of animated films in recent years, supplanting anthropomorphic rodents and zoo animals as the protagonists du jour. Pubescent Vikings, crotchety old men, lonely robots, and giant green ogres may not be much of a draw in the live-action realm, but in the animated world, they’re freaking gold. You can add to those prestigious ranks Gru, the lead character in Despicable Me, a terrific 3D-animated flick directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud and based on a story by Sergio Pablos.

Hollywood’s cartoon villains have always been more fun than their heroic adversaries, so it’s hardly surprising that two major animated movies this year have chosen to focus on the bad guys. But while forthcoming Will Ferrell/Brad Pitt vehicle ‘Megamind’ promises to be an all-out satirical assault on comic-book cliché, ‘Despicable Me’ is a cosy, old-fashioned affair, eschewing the current fashion for smug, ‘Shrek’-style cynicism in favour of a cockle-warming redemption story.

Despicable Me is no Pixar flick — but then, did you want to put the fear of death and loss into your kids’ hearts again, so soon after last month’s moving but slightly trauma-inducing Toy Story 3? Thanks to imaginative visual design and voice work, this sweet and sometimes macabre tale about a villain finding his inner nurturer will engage your senses and touch your soul. The lightweight plot, however, won’t linger in your memory long after you leave the theater. But as a summer treat, Despicable Me provides fine enough family delights at the multiplex — especially for younger kids, who’ll grasp towards the screen at the film’s gimmicky, diverting 3D gags.

Movie Review from

When an actor has just hit a career low — as I think Steve Carell did in the desperate Dinner for Schmucks — it’s a relief to see them bounce back with a performance that clicks, in a hit film that really needs their services. In the gadget-fond super-villain ’toon Despicable Me, he plays a meanie so mean that he’ll fashion balloon animals to console distraught children, only to pop them with a pin and walk off with maniacal satisfaction. What Carell brings to this cruel mastermind, actually the hero, is a mad Russian accent, lugubrious timing, and a general air of knowing exactly what he’s doing — one not wholly shared by the movie around him.

    This movie was cute, but its not on par with Pixar. My one disagreement with this review is that the 3D is rather pointless. There are few things during the movie that warrant its use. Something that the makers of the movie even poke fun at with the 3D sequences that happen during the movie credits.

    I loved it. It was SO redemptive. While I felt a slight anxiety in the middle from my 7-year-old and 3-year-old grandchildren, by the end they were laughing and dancing. As was I.
