The critical consensus

The third Despicable Me film chronologically is also the third-best in terms of quality. But it has just enough energy and flashes of inspiration to suggest it’s a franchise that could run and run.

The third helping of the blockbuster Despicable Me series featuring Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig makes all the right moves – but to incrementally less successful effect.

***(*)(*)Andrew Pulver, The Guardian, 26/06/2017

Anyone who's been on board thus far will love it, representing as it does a madcap, occasionally risqué antidote to more wholesome family fare – candy-coloured, only fleetingly sentimental and with an embarrassment of mischievous energy, it's a bit like mainlining sugar.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 26/06/2017S

Despicable Me 3 is random in the extreme in structure but it is also wildly inventive, full of visual and verbal gags, and very good natured too.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 28/06/2017

A little less plot and a bit more fun wouldn’t have gone amiss, especially if it meant more screen time for Gru’s manic Minions.

The third outing for Steve Carell’s cartoon super-villain and co adds new elements to keep the franchise fresh.
