Minions make a masterly movie

THE purpose of the single-cell organisms the Minions, is to serve despicable masters, which is what they have done throughout the ages.

Now they are without a master and a purpose, and are depressed.

Until a Minion called Kevin concocts a plan to find a new despicable master that is.

Together with ukulele-playing Stuart and lovable Bob, they set out on their mission.

On their travels, they discover the world's first female super-villain, Scarlett Overkill (Sandra Bullock), is appearing at VillainCon in Orlando, Florida.

Wonderfully absurd, brilliantly inventive and totally adorable, the Minions, which opens at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre tomorrow (July 9), is literally a laugh a minute.

It's a sparkling combo of clever scripting and execution, brought to life with a great voice cast and an innate sense of the ridiculous.

The Minions speak only Gobbledygook - apart from a few recognisable words, so much of the humour is visual.

Consequently, it's quite a feat for these banana-loving critters to portray so much personality.

Minions is co-directed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin, who co-directed the Despicable Me films and voices the title characters.
