The villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who's grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the 80s, proves to be Gru's most formidable nemesis to date. "Whenever the dialogue goes flat, look for a cut to Gru's Minions, randomly but amusingly jamming to everything from jailhouse rock to Gilbert & Sullivan."--Boston Globe. "This rather clever, breakneck-paced cartoon gives fans exactly what they want: Like the new nemesis voiced by Trey Parker, it shoots mulitple machine-gun bursts of bubblegum at the audience, asking them to chew and enjoy."--Hollywood Reporter. "Despicable Me 3' is unwieldy, but it mostly works, as co-directors Pierre Coffin (who also voices the Minions) and Kyle Balda never lose sight of the film's emotional center, packing the rest with as much humor as they can manage."--Variety.
