A prequel/spin-off to the Despicable Me franchise will take you at the beginning of time and you'll see Minions evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who exist only to serve history's most villainous masters. By 1968, the lack of a master to serve drives them into depression, so Kevin, Stuart and Bob go on a long journey to find their new supervillain boss.
I just love them. Kudos to creators of this cute yellow characters. They speak their own language and are so funny and enjoyable. What's not to like? Well ok. The movie is definitely not as well put together and doesn't have that cool story and vibe as Despicable Me movies but I still like the film a lot. It makes you smile and smile a bit more. Sometimes with stupid humor but ok. It's a cute, lighthearted, energetic film you can relax to and have a light fun night with. 4/5
