Despicable Me

Release date: 20 June 2010 (Moscow Film Festival)

Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud direct the voice of Steve Carroll as Gru, a criminal mastermind biding for king of the kingpins by stealing the moon but really more interested in gaining the approval of his mother (voice of Julie Andrews). What Gru doesn't expect is a trio of orphaned lasses - Margo, Edith and Agnes - who don't see the evildoer but a potential papa in the making. Despicable Me is a wonderfully fun film that marries shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles with two genuine stories - a son's desire to make his mother proud and the desire of orphaned children to find a family that accepts them. Filmed in a luscious animation reminiscent of the animation of the 1970s, Despicable Me is a wee gem of a film worth renting.

My rating 9 out of 10.
