Minions – Review by Piyush Chopra

Minions – Review by Piyush Chopra Minions is fun and adorable as it starts off, but turns out to be a listless, plotless, cash-grabby Despicable Me spinoff film that unsuccessfully tries to coast on our affection towards its title characters. It probably wasn’t meant to be anyway. Read full review at http://j.mp/1LWbRrl
