Like the past few installments, Despicable Me 3 delivers more good vibes and laughs! Also enjoyed the 80s vibes & art direction of the movie.

Illumination’s films have become a worldwide phenomenon! Despicable Me Populated with characters that are distinctive, comedic and authentic, the studio boasts movies—including two of the top-six animated ones of all time—captivate audiences of all ages and cultures.

By the time you reach the third or fourth installment in a franchise, there’s always that, “What else can they do to make this franchise more interesting?” question that goes in the back of every viewer’s minds. And while it doesn’t have the freshness of the first film, Despicable Me 3 delivers more laughs and good vibes. Well, at least after that Minions movie. And like every successful franchise, producers and directors will keep making more as long as it brings in more money, but forgetting that story is king. You’ll see Mcdonalds producing more Happy Meal toys and more knock-off merchandises here and there.

How did Despicable Me 3 fare?

A little brief summary about the Despicable Me 3 movie: After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis.  But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.

Despicable Me 3 continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions.

With new characters introduced, Despicable Me 3 continues to surprise us with more twists Although the sappy long lost twin brother trope seems to be overused, I’m surprised that all characters in the film seem to have conflicts with each other that was resolved in the end!  But like every other film franchise, this third installment seems to be lackluster in comparison to the first two – except for the Minions movie. Although Despicable Me 3 has a lot of cartoony gags; more pop-culture references, highlighting the 80s; and of course, more songs from the hit-maker, Pharrell Williams. Nothing beats the magic of the first Despicable Me.

The main essence of the Despicable Me films have always been about family. It’s nice to see Margo, Edith and Agnes trying to adjust to their new mom, Lucy. Gru trying to spend time with his long-lost twin brother. And the minions trying to find home, but they realized that home is where Gru is. It’s a heartwarming and fuzzy message will leave everyone with a positive note about the truly important things in life.

But overall, Despicable Me 3 proves to be a fun choice for kids and parents to enjoy together. Definitely lots of laughter and fun all throughout the film!

Despicable Me 3 is now running in cinemas nationwide. Special thanks to Columbia Pictures PH for the invite.
