REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..while not quite as charming or unique as the original, "Despicable Me 2" comes awfully close, extending co-directors Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin's delightfully silly sensibility to a bit larger universe..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
3 of 5

“..it falters in the middle and hesitates unnecessarily in setting up the love story, but Gru still has charm and kids will adore the Minions..”
by Helen O'Hara [Empire Magazine]

“..a sweet-natured family film..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
2 of 5

“..a disappointing sequel that's primarily let down by an unfunny central character and is further scuppered by a lazy script and a general lack of laughs..”
