You got to be Grul to be cruel

Eventually I gave in and took the children to see “Despicable Me”. Being a sucker for animated movies I was keen to see what the writers of Shrek had come up with and I wasn’t disappointed. A simple, but effective, premise combined with well drawn (no pun) and likeable characters. Grul is perhaps a little too likeable from the start, despite the attempt to make him appear otherwise – but his growth through the film is good. The children are good and the minions are super little creations, deserving of a series of mini-shorts themselves (which I am sure will come). The villain of the piece is Vector and he is probably the weakness in the plot being a nerd-like super-villain with an Edna hairstyle. All in all a pleasant way to spend a couple hours with the offspring – we all left the theatre with smiles.
