While Gru, the ex-supervillain is adjusting to family life and an attempted honest living in the jam business, a secret Arctic laboratory is stolen. The Anti-Villain League decides it needs an insider's help and recruits Gru in the investigation. Together with the eccentric AVL agent, Lucy Wilde, Gru concludes that his prime suspect is the presumed dead supervillain, El Macho, whose his teenage son is also making the moves on his eldest daughter, Margo. Seemingly blinded by his overprotectiveness of his children and his growing mutual attraction to Lucy, Gru seems on the wrong track even as his minions are being quietly kidnapped en masse for some malevolent purpose.

It's not often that a hit animated film's sequel surpasses the original
film. Despicable Me 2 is one of those rare cases. From the moment it
appears on the screen to the end of the film, Despicable Me 2 is a fast
paced, fun film that never ceases to be entertaining.
This film has you laughing quite often, contains humour that both kids
and adults can appreciate, and had at least one moment that was worthy
of clapping out loud to.
The character development is to be praised, as is the warmth and soul
that Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud put into this film.
This film leaves you feeling joyful and satisfied and happy for the
characters and the new direction their lives are taking.
This film is not to be missed and I can't recommend it enough.
