Consensus: Despicable Me 3 should keep fans of the franchise consistently entertained with another round of colorful animation and zany -- albeit somewhat scattershot -- humor.

Steve Carell doubles your fun in Despicable Me 3 - voicing feuding twin bros. Carell is the life of the party and the main reason this animated blast of slapstick silliness packs appeal beyond the PG crowd.

"Despicable Me 3" has some laughs, but not enough to prop up what feels like a flagging franchise.

Another saga that has become boring and continues squeezing out all the money possible with a view to continue to survive. [Full review in Spanish]

By the midpoint, the movie, which is directed by three different people - franchise regular Pierre Coffin gets help from Éric Guillon and Kyle Balda - is dragging badly.

While the first movie was, as noted, at its core rather charming, for Despicable Me, the third time definitely isn't the charm.

This gag-laden kids' animation is bright, breezy and doesn't hang about.

An amusing third instalment, but the hopes of any more dwindles as the movie goes on.
