I recently watched Despicable Me after hearing many good things about the movie. Maybe I went into it with too high of expectations but it definitely was not one of my favorite movies.
The main character is a villain which is a fun idea since usually the villains are the bad guys. I’m not sure how I feel about having sympathy and rooting for a villain. The enemy in the movie is another villain. It just seemed too weird to root for one villain but not the other.
However, there are three little girls in the movie who the villain adopts which makes the movie worth it to me. They are so adorable. Without them, I don’t think I would have cared if the main guy won the battle or not.
I would say it’s worth it to watch this movie once but I’m not sure if I would watch it again. Kids, on the other hand, seem to absolutely love this movie. There are a lot of fun characters in the movie and no swearing or other adult topics – not that I saw anyway.
