Plot Summary

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time.  Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.  Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.
But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.
The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain.  They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation.

  • The questions is: Can the minions carry a movie all by their mischievous mini-selves? 'Fraid not. This origin story, while being utterly harmless and far from despicable, wears out its welcome way too soon. show more

  • The bottom line is that the filmmakers are working with nothing here — no characters to speak of, no interpersonal relationships, no story with any suspense or capacity to engage, and no script with any humor or wit. What can they do? show more

  • What Minions does have is abundant if relentless cuteness, which audiences are sure to accept in lieu of content; people love these little guys. show more

    The hope and promise of the Minions franchise is how the most dominant predator (us) became the worst parent on the planet. Although filmed in 3-D, it never figures out how to even show us that in 2-D.

    I love the minions and despicable me movies but this movie was a total let down... We thought scarlet was dull and boring. We enjoyed her hubby herb more.. He was at least funny. I thought bob was adorable but this movie had so many slow parts that I found myself falling asleep at parts. We expected this movie to be funnier then it was. I enjoyed more of the credit scenes when gru came. Those at least we're cute and funny. I would say save your money and rent it.
