As much as I have complained about Illumination, Despicable Me was admittedly a good film, not great, but a ton of fun. Despicable Me 2 was... Okay, the humor was there, the villain was great, but the Minions took up too much of the film, that problem only got worse with the spin-off, which again, was decent, but the films have become quite annoying;in short I wasn't looking forward to this one.
So, now I kinda feel disappointed in myself, I laughed in multiple instances, and I even find myself curious to see more of Trey Parker's 80's themed villain, Balthazaar Bratt.
I guess what works about this is that it dials back the Minion use, which made the previous films annoying, hopefully the filmmakers have realized that, because I'd prefer not having to sit through a messy film. One last thing, but am I the only one surprised that this trailer only features three celebrity names?
So what do you think? Was this a good trailer?
