Three Unlikely Heroes
Since the dawn of time, Minions have served (and accidentally eliminated) history's most despicable villains. After their latest explosive mistake leaves them without an evil leader, the Minions fall into a deep depression. With the tribe on the brink of collapse, three unlikely heroes—Kevin, Stuart, and Bob—embark on a journey to find a new big boss. When their quest leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock), our three heroes must face their biggest challenge yet: saving all of Minionkind… from annihilation!
Meet the Minions
Kevin is the protective "Big Brother" and knows that minions without a master are minions without a purpose. He is the leader of this Motley Crew on a mission to save his tribe.
Stuart is the "Middle Brother" and the perennial adolescent. He is also an aspiring rock star.
Bob is the eager "Little Brother" of the crew and the innocent one. He embodies an unconditional love for everyone and everything.
The Minions, breakout stars from "Despicable Me," are presented in an origin story that showcases their unpredictable personality and physicality, and pairs them with equally memorable human characters. As it turns out, Minions have existed since the beginning of time. They have evolved from single (yellow) cell organisms into the familiar beings we know, and they live for a collective purpose: to seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find. Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock will lead the voice cast of the human characters as Scarlett Overkill, the world's reigning super-villain of the 1960s.

Kevin, Stuart, and Bob will make their way to New York City, Orlando, and finally London, to take service under Scarlett Overkill (nicely voiced by Sandra Bullock). Scarlett's dream is to steal the crown of the Queen of England and take her place on the throne. Somewhat, that evil scheme doesn't quite work out as planned. Oh, did I mention it is 1968 in London, with suitable fashions, music, and slang?
There are plenty of laughs in the movie, and the young at heart will find plenty that is funny. Unlike the earlier movies, the Minions have to carry the dramatic weight of the storyline, a role that doesn't entirely facilitate their comedy. This reviewer did get plenty of laughs out of the 1960's parody, including a well-done turn on a young and feisty Queen Elizabeth II. Recommended, especially if you have youth in your viewing party.
The problem with adults reviewing kid movies is we are adults and these movies are not meant for us. If you watch it as an adult you will more than likely hate it. Just pretend to be a kid then you will discover nothing is better than wishing Minions were real and you could be their master :-)
