Aussie boy's thoughts

Although they’re getting weaker and are losing their spark, the Despicable Me movies, especially the third instalment, are always great at villains, sweetness, creativity and laughs. Fans will love hearing the cast work together, seeing the dazzling animations and experiencing a brand new story that’s often accompanied with very engaging songs.

Despicable Me 3 is quick at introducing its appealing and quirky new villain, Balthazar Bratt, and it does a smooth job at getting into the topics it’s hungry to cover. The 2017 animation-comedy instalment settles around our two now-married characters, Gru and Lucy, being unexpectedly fired from their jobs as secret agents and traveling to meet Gru’s unheard twin brother.

You’ll find alike many other animation movies, the glimmer is located the cast, imagination and in how entertaining the story runs. Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig are back in their sweet voice roles starting as secret agents, then jobless parents and embarking on a mission. The villain is very alluring with inventive motives and everyone you see throughout the film looks like an animated character from an animated film, which it is.
