A Sweet Tale

MINIONS (2015)

Produced by: Illumination Entertainment and others
Directors: Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin
Starring: Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney and others (all voice)
Pros: Simple story, very easy to follow
Cons: Confusing at times, not for adults
Rating: *** of 5 (3 of 5)

They gained their fame through the Despicable Me movies, and history would say that it was only a matter of time before they got their own spin-offs. Minions is more of a classic cartoon movie than the new-age animated films, but it does rub you in all the right places. A little too much at times.

The movie is difficult to judge - it is excellent for kids, although they need to be a little older for some of the content (or maybe not, in this day and age!). The story is very simply and straightforward for the most part, and will not tax you to understand it, except of a few parts that did seem confusing to me, although it could be that I was just thinking too much. And that possibly is the big negative of this movie - it is simply not for adults, unless you really want to empty your mind of all thought. Perhaps I just shouldn't have seen it? (OTFS)
