Doesn’t it feel so good to be bad


“Minions,” by Illumination Entertainment, is about the Minions, (all voiced by Pierre Coffin) especially, Stuart, Kevin and Bob, before the “Despicable Me” movies. It explains many things that might not have been clear about the Minions before.

At the beginning, the Minions set out to find an evil master for their tribe. However, due to some unfortunate events, their masters don’t seem to last long.

Most of the Minions have given up on finding another villain to serve, but when Kevin volunteers to help, it gives them all hope.  Kevin, Stuart and Bob start out walking, but when they find water they set out on a boat and start paddling.

When they land in New York, they learn about Villain Con, a meeting where all the famous villains gather in Orlando, and they set off to find a boss. To get to Orlando they have to hitchhike with a very interesting family, which was fun to watch.

At Villain Con, they ask around but nobody needs any more henchmen.

Then they meet Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock) who hires them to steal Queen Elizabeth’s crown, since, as a child, she had two dreams:  She wanted to be a villain, but everyone teased her that no girl could rob a bank as well as a man until she proved them wrong. Second, she wanted Queen Elizabeth’s crown to fulfill her dream of becoming a princess because as she said “Evil isn’t pretty, it’s red hot Scarlet.”

This was a really good animated film that kept me laughing the whole time. The movie takes place in 1968 and has cool music choices from all the ‘60s.

This hilarious film is great for everybody in the family, and, as the third movie in the series, “Minions” does not disappoint.
