DVD Devil’s Advocacy: Despicable Me
In the search for the next feel good, animated, family film of the summer of 10′, comes Despicable Me, the story of Gru, a super-villian whose plan in the ultimate theft, is to steal the moon, which involves him adopting three orphaned girls. Gru voiced by comedian actor Steve Carell, slowly begins to have an emotional attachment to the three girls after adopting them for his scheme. Due to the situation, Gru begins to have conflicting conclusions, between the girls, and gaining the title of being the number one super- villian which is currently held by his arch- nemesis, Vector ( Jason Segel).
In the same likeness as other animated family films such as Up, and Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa, Despicable Me displays the same giddy, family friendly, feel good emotions. The film drives home with upbeat, life laughing humor, and a good simplistic storyline for every viewer to enjoy.
In trying to find the flaws in this film, the only conclusion I can come to is that there is a “slight” possibly that this film isn’t for everyone . The film does hole almost every range of content to have a good film. There’s humor, action, sadness and anger, besides sick and twisted the combination of the former holds Despicable Me as a great film.
Even if the reviewers of DA can relate to the life of Gru, deep down even a Despicable Me can show that everyone has a soft heart, for the “fluffy”.
