A surprisingly demented delight; a crazy, spirited, if simplistic fusion of off-beat adult humour blended with the sensibility of an anarchic toddler.
The breakout stars of the Despicable Me franchise seize the spotlight in an enjoyably demented off-shoot that is guaranteed to send their young fans bananas.
Time Out London
The action sequences are wild, the jokes relentlessly dumb-but-smart, and the sheer sense of anything-goes daftness...is glorious.
Minions lives and dies on its sight gags and luckily for Coffin and Balda they are almost non-stop.
Stronger on concept than story, Brian Lynch’s Minions script emphasizes scale over quantity.
While the minions are certainly little, yellow and different, Minions has probably mined them for about as much comedy as they can provide as leading men.
Farty, burpy, fall-y over fun tied to a pretty inconsequential plot. Your kids will explode with joy.
If Minions were a toy, you’d hide its batteries.

The Hollywood Reporter
The story [lacks] a clear narrative or emotional throughline to connect all of the film’s setpieces.
What’s surprising about Minions is that it squanders these yellow oddballs’ new-found freedom.
