Variety - 06/15/2013
"[The] DESPICABLE ME franchise fully embraces the loony design, zany humor and impossible physics pioneered by Hanna-Barbera, Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones..."
Hollywood Reporter - 06/15/2013
"[There's] plenty to enjoy here courtesy of those zippy visuals and a pitch-perfect voice cast led by the innately animated Steve Carell."
Empire - 06/21/2013
3 stars out of 5 -- "Gru still has charm and kids will adore the Minions."
Total Film - 06/25/2013
"The real stars of the DESPICABLE ME series are, of course, Gru's sweetcorn-shaped minions....You'll be reminded that good things come in small packages."
New York Times - 07/03/2013
"DESPICABLE ME 2 is consistently diverting and so cute you'll want to pet it."
Wall Street Journal - 07/04/2013
"[A] cheerful, perfectly enjoyable sequel....The film's greatest assets are the Minions, Gru's multitude of mischievous, fireplug-size assistants who scheme and swarm, squeal and babble in unfathomable tongues."
Rolling Stone - 07/08/2013
3 stars out of 4 -- "It's still a first-class charm assault. Carell growls gleefully..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/03/2013
"DESPICABLE ME 2 is light on its feet, visually inventive and very fast with the repartee."
