This is one of those rarities, an animated sequel that improves on the original.

As a sequel [it] stands level with the first film (also directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud), and may have the edge on it.

"Despicable Me 2" is a smartly realized sequel that equals Part 1's excellence without merely copying it. "DM2" moves the plot along… More
