Minions: The Rise of Gru (2022)


When the Minions first burst into theaters 12 years ago, it was against the backdrop of the surprisingly moving story of supervillain Gru, whose icy criminal heart melts in the face of three cute orphans. Since then, the yellow monsters have appeared in two more sequels, received their film series, and within a few years have become genuine pop culture celebrities filling Universal’s dollar bill. In short, the shower of cute chattering creatures has become unstoppable, and if you have managed to eat them in that time, I have bad news for you – we definitely won’t get rid of them that way. Why? Because banana!

After all, dollar harvests are out of the question. What started as a hilarious side character benefiting from the sweetly ridiculous world quickly turned into the most lucrative yellow fever since The Simpsons. I dare say that the Minions are now more of a commercial product than animated movie characters, and their latest movie proves that. It’s not important what the Mimons’ next adventure is about. Everything that happens on the screen serves as a stage for a flock of little yellow bananas, whose gags the audience is impatiently waiting for. And of course, he will get them.

Minions: The Rise of Gru is a fast-paced variety show full of sketches, gags, songs, dance creations, and Minion chatter. Something is always happening, the camera does not stop, the animation and editing are stationary, and everything is colorful and loud. You’ll also find something like a story here, but it’s not important, because little Gru’s quest to become a member of the supervillain six isn’t very important, just like the hunt of the six to become the most powerful villain organization in the world (ugh). The cameo of Dr. Nefario is pleasing, the characters of the members of the six super villains are properly bizarre and burnt out, the kung fu mom, but Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto play the main roles again. Their escapades are the driving force of the entire film, with the others playing the second play.

The film rides on the popular retro wave, otherwise, the authors drew inspiration everywhere – from Raiders of the Lost Ark to James Bond. Pop culture exploitation is completely unconcealed here, after all, it’s such a classic outside of Minions, without which it probably wouldn’t have been possible. I feel that the yellow characters simply don’t have it for a stand-alone film, regardless of the moderate length of footage. Of course, the authors try to cram something into the film for an older audience, but there isn’t much, and if you were to visit the anime, for example, only for the original dubbing (Steve Carell, Michelle Yeoh, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, etc.) , you won’t enjoy it much because most of the supporting characters don’t have more than a few lines and some maniacal laughter in the movie.

I don’t think this or any other review will make a difference in your decision to go to the movies – it’s only decided by whether or not you have kids, which is what Minion is primarily intended for. On the other hand, everyone else can be sure that watching the film will not cause them a nervous breakdown or temporary paralysis unless you are one of the followers of the films of Luis Buñuel or other cinematic greats, for whom the film is a specific art form and not a cheap commercial product.
