Minions live on the planet much longer than us. They have one obtrusive idea – to serve the most disgusting personality available. Dinosaurs, pharaohs, Dracula, Napoleon – all of them were short-lived. And then the minions jerked into New York. They are waiting for money, power, the fateful super-villain Scarlet Overkill and, of course, the delicious “banana”! In any case, it seems to them.
After the popular adventures of villain Grew, it would be sinful not to release a film about his faithful companions – minions. These amazingly lively, emotional yellow creatures who speak Spanish-English, few can remain indifferent.
With the “Mignons” you can compare also the minor characters from “Madagascar” – penguins, with which they also shot a separate full-length cartoon. A similar plot (the origin of the characters, their growing up and blossoming), where there are several leaders (there were four in the penguins, and three in the penguins). But I must say that the penguins were designed for kids, and the “Minions” 4k ultra hd with an age limit of +6, should like both children and adults.
So, the film begins with the appearance of living beings on Earth. The minions were “programmed” to serve the evildoers. Among their hosts were dinosaurs, Dracula, Napoleon, etc. After a failure with the French leader, as in general and with others, they decide to lie to the bottom. And so they are bored and do not lose the meaning of life while the minion Kevin did not decide to go in search of a new owner, taking with him guitarist Stewart and baby Bob.
The main action of the picture takes place in 1968 first in America, and then in Britain. The spirit of that time is passed on, personally for me, wonderful. Events and characters of those times are shown (protests against the war in Vietnam, a poster with Nixon, Queen of Britain Elizabeth, “The Beatles” on the street, (the best moment for me in the whole cartoon film) is the landing of Americans on the Moon.And the main villain is Scarlet Overkill, who sounded in the original Sandra Bullock.
The minions are bribed by the fact that even if the viewer is bored for a couple of minutes while watching (and so it was a couple of times), then one is just a retort in the Spanish-English language of a yellow crank or a mischievous trick can restore the interest of the viewer.
This film does not carry any deep thoughts, in places there are frankly silly jokes (for example, jokes with hydrants or licking one minion to others). The cartoon is intended solely as a relaxing medicine. And, although the project “Mignons” 4k remux movie is already almost entirely directed only to receive money, the creators managed not to hit the dirt in the face and make a worthy prehistory of the series “Ugly I”. Cherz 2 years should appear the third part of the story about the villain Grew. Let us hope for the best.
