Long before he becomes the master of evil, Gru is just a 12-year-old boy in 1970s suburbia, plotting to take over the world from his basement. When the infamous supervillain group, the Vicious 6, ousts their leader, Gru attempts to join their ranks but soon finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. With Gru on the run, the Minions attempt to learn martial arts to help save him, and Gru discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends. Packed with the franchise's signature subversive humor, Minions: The Rise of Gru features more thrilling action than any Despicable Me film ever before!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The Minions' antic shenanigans are beginning to grate despite this sequel's injection of retro chic, although this loony marathon of gags will still delight young children.

Origin story is a groovy '70s adventure; slapstick violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Minions: The Rise of Gru is a Despicable Me prequel/origin story about how young 11-year-old Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) began his life of villainy. Young Gru has always admired the "Vicious 6" -- the six most dangerous criminal masterminds in the world -- and is thrilled when he's asked to interview for an open spot on the team. When things go south, Gru ends up kidnapped, and his loyal minions must work together to rescue him. As with the other films in this franchise, you can expect peril, slapstick violence, explosions, and destruction, as well as martial arts battles (and training), vehicle chases, and fight sequences. Three separate scenes include glimpses of a minion bottom or the top of Gru's butt. Gru is also shown in his villain underwear. Insults are infrequent but include "stupid," "idiot," "stupid idiot," "tubby little punk," and "shut up." Villainy is at the heart of this series, but the minions do exhibit loyalty and teamwork as they work to save the brave (but young and naive) Gru.
