Despicable Me

Now this is an animated film worth paying for. "Despicable Me" stars Steve Carrell as Guru, the baddest meanest villian there is, until Vector (Jason Segal) comes along and destroys Guru's evilness by being...more evil. The film, centers on Guru trying to regain his evilness by competing with Vector to steal the moon. While doing so he comes encounter with three adorable orphan girls, Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher) who are selling cookies to Vector. Guru devises a plan to get close to the girls in order to steal from Vector. Can the girls change his heart from evil to good or will he regain the power of being pure evil?
I adored this film. Steve Carrell(who you can't even tell it is him with his Russian accent) is wonderful in this role. He plays this lonely, mean villian but in such a likeable way. It sounds so weird, but the audience really does root for the villian in this film, which is why I think it's so good.

I enjoyed the fact that the film is all in the perspective of the villian rather than a nice guy trying to do good. It was a nice change of pace especially for an animated children's film. It was an interesting story that I think had a lot of heart. The 3 orphan girls really stole the show, they were captivating and intriguing and left the screen with the audience always wanting more.

I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a heartwarming animation story, children, and a thirst for evil.
