Minions – Video Review

The minions, those banana-loving, dungaree-wearing, yellow mini-sidekicks from the Despicable Me movies are back causing mirth and mayhem, but this time they’ve got their very own movie!

The story of Minions begins at the dawn of time with the birth of the minions and their evolution through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one minion named Kevin has a plan, and he – alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob – ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

Watch my video review to find out what makes Minions an enjoyable romp through the history of the best-known yellow cartoon characters since The Simpsons.

Rating: 3.5 / 5
