DESPICABLE ME 2 is an animation sequel in which the central character from the first film is engaged by an international agency to track down and defeat a new threat to humanity.

Threat

There are scary scenes mostly involving the principal character, who has developed a toxin that turns people and creatures into ferocious monsters. For the most part it is used on his small yellow minions, who turn purple and snarl and bark threateningly. Near the end of the film, the toxin is used on a human who is transformed into a large and menacing monster with wild hair and huge teeth.

Violence

Scenes of violence have a strong element of slapstick, such as when the hero is struck by a car. He is not injured and the scene is very much played for comic effect. There is also some focus on weaponry but it is all fantastical in nature rather than realistic.
