Now THIS is a 3D animated movie! Unlike Toy Story 3, whose only complaint I had was that it might as well have been 2D and saved the audience (and themselves) a couple of bucks.
Despicable Me is about Dr. Gru - an aspiring super villain. One of his diabolical plans involves using three orphaned girls as a decoy. The only way to get access to them is to adopt them. Hilarity and heart warming moments naturally ensue.
I guess that sounds a bit dismissive, but DM is a really good kids movie. It has comedy for all ages, a well written story (predictable, but what kids movie isn't?), and excellent voice acting. The cast features
Steve Carell as Gru along with Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, Will Arnett and Kristen Wiig.
Did I mention the 3D? This was made with 3D in mind, and it is used well throughout the movie. The highlight is a fantastic theme park sequence, and make sure to stick around during the end credits. I predict they will become a staple demo reel for 3D TV sets.
It isn't quite up to Pixar standards, but it is as close as anyone has come IMO.
Long live the console war! Buy 'em all! Just don't give Sony any of your Personal info!
