Three new mini-movies from the creators of Despicable Me. Orientation Day: Three freshly cloned minions go through the wacky orientation process at the evil laboratories of Gru. Home ... See full summary »
"Minions: Mini-Movie - The Competition" is a 4-minute short film from
last year that is connected to the "Minions" full feature film. Let me
start by saying I really liked "Despicable Me", I liked "Despicable Me
2", but I did not like the Minions movie I just mentioned. The story is
probably worse in that one than the characters are, but it wasn't a
convincing watch really. In my opinion, the minions are fine for comic
relief that has not really to do with the core plot, but that's
basically it. Even for such a short film like this one, i must say they
simply did not carry the action unfortunately. Also a bit to see it
took 2 writer and 2 directors to come up with something as forgettable
as this film here. Really disappointing. The action was uninteresting
and the comedy simply wasn't funny. Maybe the Minions have their best
days behind them? I am not sure. I hope "Despicable Me 3" proves me
wrong. But I cannot recommend this very short film here. Thumbs down.
