Storyline

Ever since the dawn of time, the Minions have lived to serve the most despicable of masters. From the T-Rex to Napoleon, the easily distracted tribe has helped the biggest and the baddest of villains. Now, join protective leader Kevin, teenage rebel Stuart, and lovable little Bob on a global road trip. They'll earn a shot to work for a new boss, the world's first female supervillain, and try to save all of Minionkind from annihilation. Written by Universal Pictures

For the younger young ones
8 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I watched this with the whole family, ages ranging from 11-41... And to be honest there wasn't much laughing going on.

I'll tell you what I did like: the animation was great, and what I found most appealing as a grown up watching this was the nice little musical references, like Hair and The Beatles, and the soundtrack throughout the whole movie. A few minor laughs here and there but unfortunately that was it.

I would think a kid from 0-10 would like it, just the way it likes most any cartoon. Slapstick comedy, funny talk and cute pet-like beings... The main target is probably this age and there it can't go wrong.

But for older and adults I think it is way too childish.
