Is third time's the charm with the Despicable Me franchise? Ehh, somewhat., 7 July 2017
Author: FilmReviewer835

Despicable Me 3 is the latest installment of the Despicable Me franchise. After letting supervillain Balthazar Bratt escape from Gru and Lucy's clutches, they end up getting fired from the Anti- Villain League. The very next day, Gru finds out that he has a twin brother named Dru, so he and his family visits him. While there, Gru must make a choice to return to his old ways as a villain or live a normal life,

I went in with an open mind today when I went to see the movie knowing that it has gotten mixed reaction from critics. Leaving it, I gotta say that it's a decent movie. It's not as good of an installment as its predecessors, but it is better than Minions.

The movie shares a similar style to Despicable Me 1 and 2 with its more character driven stories rather than, well, story driven stories. As such, they brought on two new ones, Bratt, the antagonist of the film and Dru, Gru's twin brother. Bratt is a very entertaining antagonist, as his actions are guided by his backstory. I don't want to get too in-depth with this guy as it leads into spoiler territory, but all I have to say is that his backstory makes him a very interesting villain.

As for the Minions, all but two are absent for the majority of the movie. Whether you like them or not, that fact may motivate or drive you away from watching it. I, for one, was fairly entertained by them, as they were part of one of my favorite scenes in the movie. It's the scene where the Minions basically take over an entire prison, and it's hilarious to see everyone else get overshadowed and scared by them.

As for the story, it's not necessarily anything special. At many points, the movie feels distracted. Alongside the plot where Gru meets and connects with his twin brother, Dru, the movie has quite a few sideplots surrounding the movie and none of them seem to connect with the main story, which can be heartfelt and interesting to watch. Honestly, it's kind of hard to say anything new about the plot for the movie when its formula is identical to that of its predecessors. And yes, Gru is still very likable.

My main complaint with the movie, however, has to be Dru. As the movie went on, he just felt more like a motivation to Gru rather than a main character. If you think about it, he hardly does anything until the very end of the movie. The only really use that he seems to play is that he has some really cool gadgets and cars. Other than that, he's a very over-the-top character, and not in a really good way. His voice and attitude manage to get on my nerves as he often comes off as loud with his high voice and annoying because of his over-the-top nature, which makes him that less useful.

Even if the story is rather so-so and that Dru manages to be pretty useless on his own, Despicable me 3 is entertaining in its own right. It's definitely not the franchise's best, but I think that many would be able to enjoy the movie and its quirkiness.
