When it comes to family friendly CGI movies there are two big players. Pixar and Dreamworks, with no real competition. Oh sure, there are other studios, but none have ever really made it big. Mostly due to being terrible (Try watching anything by Blue Sky and you'll see what I mean).
But in 2010 a new player burst onto the scene, Illumination Entertainment.
And despite seemingly coming out of nowhere, they had a massive hit with Despicable Me.
|No, the weird yellow person isn't the main character.|
As you may be able to tell, a certain breed of little yellow beings stole the show. These guys are called Minions and if you haven't heard of them, can I come and live under your rock?
These guys are everywhere, from duvets to Tic-Tacs.
But dismissing the cash-cow that are the Minions, does the rest of the movie hold up?
Well, there's only one way to find out. Grab your goggles, jump into your overalls and paint your faces yellow, it's time to get despicable.
