The entertaining and amusing threequel Despicable Me 3 was, in my opinion, the best of the three movies in this series. I’ve seen that a lot of threequels end up ruining the entire series of movies for some people, however this particular movie seemed to sum up this series perfectly.
The storyline was pretty basic, there is a bad guy and Gru becomes the hero by defeating him. However, this movie was a little more focused on Gru’s Family: the girls, Lucy and a new character named Dru.
Gru and Dru being brought together and looking out for each other in this movie is what made it the best movie of the three for me.
Another aspect of this movie that made it my favorite was actually the villain. Balthazar Bratt was the Tv star gone villain after his show was discontinued. He brought entertainment and some ridiculously funny scenes to this movie.
Finally I still love the minions which made me fall in love with this series in the first place. In this final movie, the minions are locked in jail, and practically take over. The scenes from the jail and their escape scene were some of my favorite moments from this movie.
This movie ended the series perfectly, combining the mischief of the minions with the aspect of the importance of family into a family friendly comedy.
