Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Minions.
Charlotte Observer - 9/10 by Lawrence ToppmanThe new team thinks that if mayhem is funny, five times the mayhem will be five times as hilarious. That's not how movie math works, and too many scenes spin out of control.
Beliefnet - 9/10 by Nell MinowA reasonably diverting entertainment with some great visuals, a few classic songs, some good ideas, and some missed opportunities
ChrisStuckmann.com - 9/10 by Chris StuckmannThe Minions were the funniest aspect of the Despicable Me films. Stretching their supportive roles to feature length has caused their appeal to wear thin.
Movie Chambers - 9/10 by Paul ChambersIt was only natural to give the little yellow pill-like creatures from "Despicable Me" their own movie. They are cute and funny most of the time, but their new film, "Minions" is loud and violent. And to many adults, it will be a noisy, yellow blur.
Boston Herald - 9/10 by James VerniereScarlet Overkill is no Felonious Gru. The boys are irresistible, movie not so much.
Total Film - 8/10 by Neil SmithA Despicable Me spin-off so busy, witty and all-round entertaining you won't have time to pine for the absent Steve Carell.
TheWrap - 8/10 by Alonso DuraldeTests the notion that what audiences enjoyed as a side dish can satisfy as an entrée; I don't know if the movie picks up as it goes along, or if it merely beat me into submission, but after 20 minutes or so, I did finally start laughing.
Urban Cinefile - 8/10 by Louise KellerWonderfully absurd, brilliantly inventive and totally adorable, the Minions is literally a laugh a minute... You don't need a kid to see this film
Times (UK) - 8/10 by Wendy IdeHow do you craft a film about a hoard of nearly identical yellow oval creatures who speak no identifiable language and live solely to serve the most evil master they can find? Rather successfully, it turns out.
Irish Times - 8/10 by Tara BradyMinions, their very own spin-off film, takes [the] undifferentiated mass of fun and nonsense and successfully channels it into a pleasing movie shape.
Observer (UK) - 8/10 by Mark KermodeAlthough the opening "minions through history" sequence proves a very tough act to follow, this slice of burbling slapstick animation did keep me grinning and giggling throughout.
Digital Spy - 8/10 by David MoynihanThis film is a frequently hysterical romp, packed with explosions, pratfalls and even a smidge of a history lesson.
