The coolest animation in 2010, was Despicable Me. The movie was different, it starred a bad guy who was not in any way wanting to be good, but the love of three girls melted his heart. It is not a mushy story, but an exciting one that will make you so wish that there will be a further part two.
The cool thing was, there was a Despicable Me 2 (2013) and a Despicable Me 3 (2017), then to further cement the power of this franchise there was a Minions (2015) movie. The Minions are yellow creatures in a huge number who serve Gru and his evil intents.

The movie plot tells the tell of Gru, a supervillain who is proud of his antics and resides at a position in world of villainy as one of the best. This position was being threatened as things start to change when an unknown supervillain steals the Great Pyramid of Giza.
This makes Gru mad and decided to come up with a steal that will make the Great Pyramid of Giza or any other steal a joke compared to his. Gru decided he will steal the moon.

This is an animation and even though the idea of stealing the moon is unrealistic, do note everything about this animation is unrealistic.
To achieve this Gru will need a loan from the Bank of Evil (yes, there is a bank of Evil which supports truly diabolical plans) and the shrink gun from a secret science base.

Gru and the Minions steal the shrink ray, but this new villain intercepts Gru and steals the ray from him. He takes this ray and keeps it in his home.
Gru makes every attempt to break into the home of this villain, but all attempts fail and during his surveillance of the perimeter he notices three orphan girls.

The girls who are named Margo, Edith, and Agnes were able to access the home because they were selling cookies, this new villain has a soft spot for kids, a soft spot Gru is willing to exploit.

Gru decides to adopt these girls and use their innocence to get into the villain’s home and get back the shrink ray so he can go back to his plan of stealing the moon.

But Gru soon learnt that adopting children is not a walk in a park.

The critical and commercial success of this movie and the further franchise it has spawned led to many awaiting what will be next from the Illumination Entertainment crew. With masterful voice casting from Steve Carell as Gru, this movie has pivoted into an expected sequel after sequel as we expect Minions 2 and Despicable Me 4.
