Despicable Me-The Opposite of Despicable

I may be unpublished, but as a writer I analyze film by finding themes and hidden symbolism, to help me with my own writing. Despicable Me was one such movie with a prevalent theme. One that brought tears to my eyes.

We are introduced to Gru, supervillian extrodianre who is getting "old". We follow him on his journey to be the greatest supervillian in the world by pulling off the greatest scheme in the world: steal the moon. However, three orphaned girls came into his life, and turned it upside down.

I can't say much because I don't want to spoil the movie, but if one looks at it from an analytical viewpoint, then the movie is that much more enjoyable.

I loved it, I love the characters(especially Gru), I love the originality, I just love every bit of the film!!!

It's worth seeing, that's the final verdict.
