The 2015 movie "Minions" is a spin-off/prequel to the extremely effective "Despicable Me" franchise, developed by Illumination Entertainment. Directed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin, with a movie script by Brian Lynch, "Minions" centers on the eponymous little, yellow, and enthusiastic creatures understood for their special language and love for all things evil. The movie checks out the origin of the Minions, their search for a new master, and the mishaps that ensue.

Origin and Search for a Master
"Minions" start with a beginning that shows the development of the creatures through time, beginning with single-celled organisms and slowly progressing into the beings they are, always serving the most despicable creatures they can find. From a T-Rex to Napoleon, the Minions accidentally lead their masters to regrettable ends. Having actually found themselves without a master, they slip into a deep anxiety while isolated in Antarctica.

Emerging from the cold, Kevin hatches a strategy to find a new villain to serve and leaves for the outdoors world with 2 other Minions, Stuart, who dreams of being a rock star, and little Bob, who desperately desires a teddy bear. Their journey leads them to 1968 New York City, where they find out about Villain-Con, a convention being held in Orlando, Florida, where supervillains from all over the world gather.

Scarlet Overkill and the Heist
At Villain-Con, the Minions are smitten by Scarlet Overkill, the world's first female supervillain, voiced by Sandra Bullock. Desperate to work for her, they impress her throughout a competition to become her henchmen and are rapidly blended away to her burrow in England. Scarlet appoints them an objective: to steal the Queen's Crown from the Tower of London.

The heist quickly goes awry, but versus all chances, Bob manages to unintentionally end up being King of England after pulling the famous sword Excalibur from a stone. Scarlet is infuriated by the Minions' unintentional success and feels betrayed, demanding that they hand over the crown. The Minions comply, however upon recognizing that Scarlet strategies to kill them, they fall out of favor with her and end up being fugitives.

Mayhem in London and the Rise of Gru
Chaos ensues as Scarlet, with the aid of her creator hubby Herb (voiced by Jon Hamm), attempts to perform the Minions in front of Queen Elizabeth. However, Kevin, Stuart, and Bob are resourceful and evade her traps. Eventually, the Minions save themselves and the city from a massive damage caused by Scarlet. Kevin is recognized as a hero, and the Queen recovers her throne.

Throughout the turmoil, a young Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), a future master of the Minions, is present and unconsciously gives the inspiration for their next experience. In a connection to the original "Despicable Me" films, the Minions follow Gru, recognizing him as their brand-new possible master, setting the stage for the occasions that follow in the "Despicable Me" timeline.

"Minions" offers a whimsical and easy going check out the backstory of one of animation's most precious sidekicks. With its combination of slapstick humor, 1960s pop culture references, and a retro soundtrack, the movie supplies home entertainment for both kids and grownups. By exploring the Minions' mission for a leader and their intrinsic need to serve, the movie successfully bridges the gap in between their origin story and the developed "Despicable Me" universe. Despite the mixtures of trouble and tender moments, the true heart of "Minions" depends on the long-lasting commitment and sociability of the central silly trio-- Kevin, Stuart, and Bob-- as they embark on a journey that eventually leads them to their renowned future master, Gru.
