Co-Directors Kyle Balda’s and Pierre Coffin’s Despicable Me 3 will delight fans of this wonderful franchise. However, it’s not quite as good as its predecessor.
The reason is that there is not enough screen time for the Minions. The Creative Team does not realize the audience is more interested in the Minions and Gru’s 3 children than Gru and his twin brother Dru…and, certainly, more than Gru’s nemesis Balthasar Bratt.
When the Minions and the Kids are present, the screen comes alive. I hope this gets clear for, what I hope would be, Despicable Me 4.
As for this outing, Despicable Me 3 gets a 4.2 out of 5.
