Movie review score
3/5

What’s it about?
After losing his job, Gru meets his long-lost charming, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru who wants to team up with him for one last criminal heist.

What did we think?
Fans of the minions will be a bit disappointed in DM3 as the banana-loving yellow henchmen don’t feature as much as previous instalments. Most adults will also be disappointed as that means the weak storyline has to be carried by a two-dimensional version of Gru. The best parts of a movie (from an adult perspective) is 80s jokes and a wicked 80s soundtrack but there’s not much else to talk about. Perhaps having three directors is to blame for the lack of a central theme but there’s still mindless fun on show as the kids laughed and were left happy and that is the primary audience. The Minions sequel (due 2020) will need to be better than this for the franchise.
