Last time Despicable Me was on the big screen, I loved every part of it. This time, even when the novelty is lost, it is fun enough to warrant a viewing, in fact multiple ones if you are a fan of animations.

With some pitch perfect voice acting led by the extremely animated Steve Carell as Gru, a former villain who now tries to be a caring dad, Despicable Me 2 will take you places. And those are some of the better places of the animation world.

Recently I realised that there hasn't been a bad animation film in the last couple of years. Somehow the fact that it is all animation and the producers needing to make sure that audiences are from all age groups, the plot is really well laid out with a bit for everybody.

Pierre Coffin, the director, keeps a sharp eye on the comedy and even though there are some heart warming lines, overall there is plenty of laughter to make you happy.

The visual effects are stunning as always. There are times when two humpty dumpty looking twins get dragged around in ways which really show how much this art form has progressed over the years. The physics and lighting are perfect.

This is one of those fun films you can watch with your family, friends, lover, expected lover, random strangers (hope not) and still have an amazing time.
