Director: Kyle Balda, Brad Ableson, Jonathan del Val Screenwriter: Matthew Fogel, Brian Lynch Starring:  Steve Carell, Pierre Coffin, Alan Arkin, Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, Julie Andrews, Russell Brand, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Lucy Lawless Runtime: 1 hour 27 minutes Synopsis: The untold story of one twelve-year-old's dream to become the world's greatest supervillain. Kriss & Ro talk about the latest film in the Despicable Me/Minions series, Minions: The Rise of Gru. Overall this movie does what it needs to do. It's entertaining enough for kids and is serviceable enough for adults. It is becoming clear that this franchise is starting to run out of runway. One of the biggest disappointments with this movie is the underutilization of the cast. There are some actors that are used for some of the villains that could have really been used better to play on the 80's time period. There's also some cring moments surrounding some Asian characters and themes that just seem like they were clunky and lazy. Again, the movie isn't bad but it's starting to feel like the studio is trying to capture the magic of the first film and keeps getting further and further away. Like what you hear?
