Michael Harbour's rating of the film Despicable Me 2

Feels like episodes of a Saturday morning cartoon stitched together with a framing plot. Very episodic with unconnected Minion breaks tossed in regularly. Each part is pleasant enough and entertaining in its own right but doesn't cohere into a satisfying movie experience. The movie seems to lean on 3D effects to bolster the entertainment value - and it looks well designed for that so see it 3D if possible (I didn't).
