Synopsis


Despicable Me
A mysterious criminal mastermind has stolen one of the pyramids in Egypt, sparking a fit of jealous envy in evil genius Gru (Steve Carell), who hasn't managed to make headlines since he and his minions swiped the Times Square JumboTron years back. Ever since Gru was a little boy, he dreamed of going to the moon. Now, if Gru can just build a rocket and get his hands on a powerful shrink-ray, he can cement his reputation as the greatest thief who ever lived by stealing the Earth's satellite right out of the sky. But immediately after Gru heists the shrink-ray, the cunning super-nerd Vector (Jason Segel) swoops in and snatches it right out of his hands. Now, in order to claim the moon, Gru must first reacquire the weapon from Vector. Armed with the knowledge that his nemesis has a mean sweet tooth, Gru adopts cookie-selling orphans Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Agnes (Elsie Fisher), and Edith (Dana Gaier) and commissions a new line of cookie robots from the evil Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand), his personal weapons specialist. But as Gru and his diminutive yellow minions prepare to carry out the biggest heist in history, something strange happens. Gru discovers that the three little girls who have come into his life are much more than simple pawns. They actually seem to care about Gru, and it turns out the scheming evildoer makes a pretty good father. When Gru realizes that his upcoming moon mission clashes with a ballet performance by the girls, he must decide what's more important -- being a present parent or cementing his nefarious reputation once and for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Great 3D, Great Family Movie!

    nullity

    I'm always complaining about the lack of grown-up movies and the abundance of children's movies available in the Blu-ray 3D format, but today I find myself grateful for the imbalance as I never would have watched this movie if not for the lack of alternatives. Beyond having a thoroughly enjoyable plot laden with endearing characters and humor for all ages (some of which only adults will appreciate), this movie sports some of the best 3D currently available on the platform. Many of the 3D titles currently available suffer from image ghosting, but there were very few instances of ghosting in Despicable Me. This may be attributed to its lack of attempts at over-the-top "OH MY GOODNESS STUFF IS FLYING OUT OF MY TV" effects, but a true sense of depth pervades every scene and is much more enjoyable to this viewer than the ugliness that comes with such effects. On an unrelated note, there are some treats in this movie for you If you have a good sound system (particularly subwoofers that go below 20Hz). If you are lucky enough to have kids -and- a 3DTV, then you owe it to your family to buy this movie right now. Even if you have no children, this is a fun 3D super-villain romp that will reaffirm the wisdom of your 3DTV purchase. Note: I'd posted this review on the original 3D Blu-ray listing for Despicable Me but somehow that product no longer shows up in the correct category. I've re-posted my review here because at the moment there is only one other review and I strongly disagree with the one star rating.

    Excellent Movie!

    2010 was a good year for animation! Despicable Me was excellent. The story is great - the characters seem so 'real' that you forget they are characters, let alone animated characters! I was a little put off at the beginning with the references to MSNBC - and the episode at the bank. So - it really had to work to get me back to even LIKING the movie. But I absolutely loved it. It is funny. It is sad. It is just well scripted and incredibly entertaining. I'd say it is better than How to Train Your Dragon (only because I don't like whoever voices Hiccup - wrong voice actor for sure) and better than Megamind as well. Considering I didn't think I'd like any of those three - I am surprised because they are some of the BEST movies I've seen in ages. Hated Toy Story 3's whole story. Enjoyed Shrek 4, it's WAY better than 3 when they killed Harold. But Tangled is probably my favorite of the year. This comes in second.

    My fiance and I caught part of this movie on TV and laughed so hard. We enjoyed the little we saw so much, that I bought it so we could watch it all any time we wanted! The movie itself is a lot of fun, as are the extras, and we don't even have kids. But we do have a nephew who is 5 and this movie gave us a lot of ammunition for buying presents (e.g., a minion that talks and f@rts! The f@rt blaster is on the list of presents for Christmas. His parents love us!) Anyway, back to the movie, it's nice to watch a fun, entertaining, clean movie and be a kid again. In addition, it's a very sweet story with well developed characters that you hope the best for. If you have just a little sense of humor, this movie will trigger it, and if you have a heart, this movie will touch it.

    I bought this movie mostly to satisfy my recent 3D Blu-Ray addiction, since there's not that many out there to begin with and this one came highly recommended. I'd never seen it prior to my first viewing of the 3D version. The movie itself is certainly entertaining. The characters are memorable (to this day I still quote "It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!"), especially the three girls and the minions. The 3D angle is a minor enhancement, although the film would probably be equally as enjoyable in 2D (unlike the Legend of the Guardians, whose 3D version is far superior to its 2D counterpart). My only criticism is that while the movie was good, I think the various reviews I'd read online and heard from friends hyped it up a little higher than it needed to be.

    Not all 3d DVDs are created equal... Unfortunately

    I seriously hope that when the technology improves the redo the 3-D version of this movie! No doubt a modern favorite, and the 3-D effect was great in the theater version, but the home 3-D version of despicable me goes in between blurry and focused depending on what you're looking at, and the 3-D enhancement strains the eyes and makes it annoying to watch as opposed to the enjoyable, hilarious movie that it is. Thank God a standard 2-D version comes with the 3-D Blu-ray or I would've held onto my original DVD copy and brought this back to the store. That being said it is handy to have the minion movies on the same disk as the movie but as far as a 3-D presentation it falls shorter than Dave the minion.....

    MINIONS in 3D!!

    This is a very cute, humorous and heart warming family movie that I often watch with my children. Naturally my kids are always asking to watch the 3D version of it because they get more enjoyment out of seeing the antics of the Minions and feel like they are there and apart of it all. Some of the extras that I like about this set is that it comes with both the 2D and 3D discs, as well as the Ultra Violet download so I can take it with me anywhere as long as I can stream it on one of my devices. In addition to the movie on the discs, it also comes with a few very cute and very funny minis to watch. If you want a good family film, or just something funny to watch, you should get this, it is well worth it.

    Love this movie! Steve Carell is the perfect voice of Gru, a "super villain" who tries to pull off the "Crime of the Century". To put his plan into fruition, he adopts 3 girls from an orphanage to use them so he can steal an item he needs to pull off his big caper. However, he ends up developing a bond with them, making him rethink what he really wants out of life. Of course, nobody can forget the big stars of the film: Gru's Minions. Great writing, and voice overs by Steve Carell, Jason Segal, Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, and the great voice of Academy Award winning actress Julie Andrews!

    Movies are always a very subjective thing to review. What one person loves, another will find horrible. So I'd recommend this: rent it. If it turns out that you're like me and enjoy this movie, then by all means do what I did: go out and buy it! I've probably seen this movie a dozen or more times, and I enjoy it each and every viewing. It's funny, cute, sweet, and has a great cast. It never fails to make me smile, and that alone is worth the price of buying it. I consider it one of my top 5 all-time favorites, and I'd never hesitate to recommend it to my family, friends, and acquaintances.
