Minions is a 2015 3D computer-animated family comedy film, and a prequel/spin-off to the Despicable Me franchise. Produced by Illumination Entertainment for Universal Pictures, it was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, written by Brian Lynch, and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.
The film stars Coffin (as the Minions), Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan, and narrated by Geoffrey Rush.
It was first foreshadowed in the end credits of Despicable Me 2, where Stuart, Kevin, and Bob, three of the Minions, are seen auditioning for the film.
I’m a senior citizen, as some of you may know. I’m a staunch movie fan. I’ve been waiting to see this movie since it started in early July.
I finally saw it today.
I enjoyed it very much. I sometimes think these movies are “wasted” on kids because many situations are based on facts that actually happened. The movie basically takes place in 1968. I graduated from high school in 1968. Many of the references are right on to occurrences in “my time” .. the minions walking as the Beatles did at the crosswalk.
The music was the perfect choice for those years too.
“Critical response was mixed: some critics praised the comedic aspects of the film, while others felt that the titular characters were not able to carry the film on their own, and also focused on the flat characterizations of the film’s villains. The film has grossed over $912 million worldwide.”
My opinion … awesome. Loved it!
Minions are small, yellow creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who exist only to serve history’s most villainous masters. They find great masters — including a T. Rex, a caveman, an Egyptian pharaoh, Dracula, and Napoleon but after accidentally killing nearly all of them with their incompetence, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica.
By 1968, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so one minion — Kevin — plans to find a new master. Stuart — a bored, teen-aged minion who is obsessed with guitars — joins him reluctantly, as does Bob, whom Kevin only chooses due to a lack of volunteers.
After a long journey, the Minions arrive in New York where they learn about Villain-Con, a convention to be held in Orlando where super-villains gather from around the world. They hitchhike to Orlando, where they become the henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first female supervillain.
Back in Antarctica, the other Minions begin working for a Yeti, but once again accidentally kill their leader. They travel around the world to find Kevin and a new master to serve.
Scarlet takes the Minions to her home to London and orders them to steal St. Edward’s Crown from Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, threatening to execute them if they fail. With gadgets from Herb, Scarlet’s husband, the Minions successfully break into the Tower of London.
The crown is being delivered to the Queen, so they steal it from the Queen’s carriage with the police in pursuit. Bob crashes onto the mythical Sword in the Stone and pulls the sword, Excalibur, out easily to defend himself. Elizabeth II is removed from the throne and Bob is crowned as the new Monarch of the United Kingdom.
