Scarlet Overkill tried to steal the crown of the Queen of England again. But Scarlet survived and it was a long time ago. To help her, the Minions found another boss. Instead of rejoining Scarlet, the Minions became infatuated with Gru when he froze Scarlett with a freeze gun and ran away on a rocket-powered motorbike. “Minions: The Rise of Gru” is about the Minions working together to try to make Gru a super-villain.

The “Despicable Me” and “Minions” movies have been huge hits. But they’ve been hit or miss when it comes to quality. For example, some people love the first one and did not like the second one at all. The “Despicable Me” movies are funny because they use a lot of slapstick comedy. These movies are also nice because they have hearts. But not all the humor works. Sometimes they can be too childish. Movies are for kids, but they don’t have to be dumbed down. It will be interesting to see how the new movie “Minions: The Rise of Gru” works. It is a crossover between the movies “Despicable Me” and “Minions.”
