DAYTON—Minions: The Rise of Gru - Long before he becomes the master of evil, Gru (Steve Carell) is just a 12-year-old boy in 1970’s suburbia, plotting to take over the world from his basement.  It is not going particularly well.  When Gru crosses paths with the Minions, including Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto – a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please – this unexpected family joins forces.  Together, they build their first lair, design their first weapons, and strive to execute their first missions.  Gru eventually finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil, and discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

This movie is rated 70% favorable by critics, and 90% by audiences, on the Rotten Tomatoes website.  The audience on that website summaries their comments as “Minions: The Rise of Gru might not be the best of the series, but it’s got all the colorful silliness that fans of the franchise will be looking for.” 

The movie is rated PG for violence and language. It has a runtime of 1 hour 27 minutes.
