Movie Review- Despicable Me 2

01 Despicable Me2

From the original creators and with the original cast, comes a new and very hilarious sequel to the popular Despicable Me, about a super-villain that learns love is more important than being a criminal.

Despicable Me 2 finds Gru still in the midst of Fatherhood while everyone is trying to set him up on a date. Soon, he is recruited by the top secret Anti-Villain League to find a criminal who stole a formula that can turn ordinary creatures into monsters. Gru is teamed up with rookie agent Lucy Wilde whom he starts to fall for. Meanwhile, a mysterious person has been kidnapping Gru’s minions and is planning on using them for sinister purposes.

The sequel, directed by Pierre Coffin, is just as good as the original. It has the humor, the snappy dialogue, the heartwarming moments, and everything in between to make this movie enjoyable for the whole family. I highly recommend it and suggest you take your whole family to see it!

If you would like to order your paperback copy of my debut novel Cacophony: A Tale Of Faith And Fear, click here. It is an incredible paranormal thriller about a group of demons trying to steal human souls by assaulting their church. The Messenger Gabriel, a Guardian angel Christopher, and the Seven Archangels are sent by God to stop them. It’s a tale that mixes drama, supernatural fiction, with a dash of fantasy.
