Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Minions.
Laramie Movie Scope - 9/10 by Robert RotenThis third in the animated 'Despicable Me' series finds the familiar balance between villainy and heroism, silliness and relevance, but it is a bit thinner. As characters, the Minions have a lot of limitations. This is for kids only.
Beliefnet - 9/10 by Nell MinowA reasonably diverting entertainment with some great visuals, a few classic songs, some good ideas, and some missed opportunities
Las Vegas Review-Journal - 9/10 by Christopher LawrenceThere's just not enough to the little fellas to warrant an entire movie that, even at just 91 minutes, feels padded.
HitFix - 9/10 by Gregory EllwoodMinions lives and dies on its sight gags and luckily for Coffin and Balda they are almost non-stop.
Boston Herald - 9/10 by James VerniereScarlet Overkill is no Felonious Gru. The boys are irresistible, movie not so much.
Tampa Bay Times - 9/10 by Steve PersallComedy and narrative demand more rhythm than simply scamper, jabber, fall but that's what Minions bring to the table.
National Catholic Register - 9/10 by Steven D. GreydanusI'm a fan of silliness and nonsense, and Minions are about as silly and nonsensical as kiddie entertainment gets. But everyone has limits.
ABC Radio Brisbane - 9/10 by Matthew ToomeyThe film's trailers suggested that Sandra Bullock's leading character might offer the bulk of the entertainment. That hasn't eventuated.
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
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 8/10 by Colin CovertAs you would expect, the script - there is one, sort of - feels as if it was written to fill the blanks in a Mad Libs story.
