is a movie with so much potential. However, the “Deadpool effect” has inflicted casualties in the DC expanded universe. Its consequences come too easy after the flaws of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Unable to reserve IMAX seats anything better than second row, we chose the 2-D screening at a local theater just a 5 minute walk from home. Arriving 45-minutes early, we managed to get 4th row seats. When the lights dimmed and the trailers rolled, I was relieved we finally made it without any thing spoiled.
Universal Studios’ most cherished animated franchise,
releases a minion-only movie for children and adults alike to enjoy! Was it too much or not enough?
