Well it was always the way they visualized every moment in the movie to cater the audience rollicking fun that made the Minions of the despicable me franchise an enormously loved bunch of characters. And the new movie from illumination featuring the Minions, or can be considered as the prequel of Despicable Me series, has no trouble in making us laugh out loud. Even though it hasn’t gone up to the expectations, it still has enough moments that leaves the audience in splits.

Well the story this time is clear from the released trailers. It gives us a brief history about the quest of Minions for an evil master. The bored gang of Minions get some hope when Kevin decides to go on an expedition to find a master along with Bob and Stuart. Their journey to find the new evil master is what the movie talking about.

Almost the first fifteen or twenty minutes of the movie is an extension of the trailer we have seen. If you have laughed a lot seeing the trailer, I am sure this first half an hour will thoroughly entertain you. At some portions of the hunt for the crown, things go a little messy as the ratio of chaos went up in those areas. Pierre Coffin along with his new partner in directing Kyle Balda manages to cover up those mistakes by making the last half an hour with some cool imagination that smartly uses the Minion features. The kind of detailing they gave on the “Mighty” Kevin scenes in a way asks studios like Marvel to think more practically about the cliché destruction scenes.

The makers have definitely kept the fun feel throughout the movie. There is always something in the scene or I should say frame that will make you laugh or giggle. Pierre Coffin who lends voice to the minions once again offers a lot of funny moments with the Minion language. Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm were also good in giving their voices to the respective characters. Animation was terrific and the cuts also had that pace to keep things exciting.

The overall output is somewhere between LOL and ROFL. The rating for the Minions is 3.5/5. 91 minutes of good fun with Knight Kevin, King Bob and Super Stuart is guaranteed.
