Recently, "Despicable Me 2" was released on Blu-ray. This film is the highest-grossing animated movie of the year, and it is the sequel to the 2010 film "Despicable Me."
"Despicable Me 2" picks up where the original film left off. The once selfish Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) is done being a villain and is trying to raise his three adopted daughters, who stole his heart in the film. A law-enforcement group called the Anti-Villain League sends Agent Lucy Wilde (voiced by Kristen Wiig) to find Gru and bring him to their headquarters. They want Gru to help bring down a villain called El Macho (voiced by Benjamin Bratt), who is suspected to be working at a local mall. As they work together, Gru finds himself falling for Lucy.
"Despicable Me 2" is a very funny film. Like the first movie, much of the humor comes from the minions. These are creatures who look like Twinkies who work for Gru. Gru's determination to be a good dad also puts him in amusing predicaments.
The animation of this film is very impressive. One of the most memorable scenes in the film is when Lucy brings Gru to the Anti-Villain League Headquarters.
This movie features great voice-acting. Steve Carell is, as usual, very funny in the lead role. Kristen Wiig is also strong as Lucy, who falls for Gru as he is falling for her.
"Despicable Me 2" is a lot of fun for fans of the original.
