This was not as fast paced of a movie as I was expecting. It was rather slow and easy going. The musical score was awesome, it fit the movie to a “T”. The humor was good, but I remember the movie more for Gru’s emotional development than for it’s humor.
Moral Rating: 3 of 5
Gru isn’t your typical heartless villain, and if heartlessness is a measure of villainy success this explains why he does not make a very good “villain.” His own mother doesn’t show her love to him until he’s put the villainy aside and made the effort to learn to love (and she admits she wasn’t as great of a parent as Gru has turned out to be). All in all, this is a fun show, worth sharing with your young kids.
