Minions is a prequel to the time, 42 years BG (Before Gru), when there was no Gru, Lucy, Dr. Nefario, and three beautiful kids, Agnes, El and Margo. This movie from the Despicable Me franchise is all about the goggle-eyed yellow creatures who have a gibberish minions language, and their funny jokes and frolics will make us laugh our hearts out!
One of the major attractions of the film are the minions who take you to a fun filled trip as the silly creatures try their luck in getting a master for themselves and keeping them which is tricky for the yellow blobs. After accidentally killing their masters which vary from the Tyrannosaurus to Dracula to Napoleon, the minions alienate themselves completely and built their own world in the snowy Antarctica as they fail to find a bad and super villain boss.
However, the mirth of living wears out gradually with depression, and they get bored with no master to serve for. Bob takes the initiative to find themselves a villain and get the members over depression.
Bob along with Stuart and Kevin take a complicated journey to find a new boss and end up landing to New York. Their road trip with a family of armed bandits in an attempt to reach Orlando is one of the best scenes in the movie.
Once they reach Orlando, Bob, Stuart and Kevin meet the villain of the movie, Scarlett Overkill (Sandra Bullock) during a villain con.
Seeing Scarlett's wickedness, badness and villainess side, Stuart, Bob and Kevin are relieved and excited for finding their new boss. Now the question is how to serve for her! After Scarlett Overkill puts up a game of stealing a diamond from her hand to become her recruit, Bob gets it and swallows the diamond leaving his teddy in her hand, and they ultimately win accidentally though!
The three minions finally land a job to serve Scarlett as recruits, and the mission to steal Queen Elizabeth's crown in England commences.
The 91 minutes movie is enchanting and the yellow little nincompoops steal the show entirely. Even though we have human counterparts, it is the little yellow henchmen from the "Despicable Me" franchise who are conquerors of our hearts.
Sandra Bullock has played an awesome role as the super villain, Scarlett. She is charming, loud and not to forget, dangerous. Apart from Sandra Bullock, Minions feature voices of Michael Keaton, Jon Hamm, Geoffrey Rush, and director, Pierre Coffin to name a few.
We hear the narration about the history of the minions from Geoffrey Rush. The movie is not about a plot but about those yellow titular characters who with their frolics and love for 'bananaaaaaaa' try to find a master but end up messing it with their silliness.
However, fans of Despicable Me franchise just need an excuse to watch Minions on the big screen yet again!
