Despicable Me 2 builds on the fun of Despicable Me which starred Steve Carell as Gru. This 3D computer-animated comedy tells the story of how in a secret laboratory in the Artic Circle a powerful mutagen known as PX-41 is stolen by a mysterious vehicle with a large magnet. Then the Anti-Villian League (AVL) tried to recruit the former supervillain Gru to find out who stole the mutagen but Gru refuses on the basis that his is a legitimate business man now and the father of 3 girls. Head over to the movie to find out how things happen.
