I couldn't believe how nonchalant these kids were during the whole ordeal, sure they were screaming but seriously it wasn't even close to the reaction they should have had. They opened a Gate. To. Hell. With demons n' shit! Mind you those demons were pretty pathetic too, they were utterly defeated by one kid. With a model rocket... seriously, a model rocket.
Honorable comedy mention goes to Minion 53; the little freak-out he was having while being stepped on was hilarious.
Crappy writing aside the special effects weren't too shabby. The monster effects were done really well I thought; I liked how they used actors in monster suits for the close up shots of the minions. It gave them a nice creepy vibe. Also how they meshed together the actors in minion suits with the human actors was pretty impressive.
Even though I wasn't freaked out nearly as much as I was when I was younger there is still one shot in the movie that gives me the heeby-jeebies; it's where you can see a minion through the rails of the balcony on the second floor:
This shot, f**k this shot.
Not the worst movie ever, I give it 2 Epileptic Minions out of 5.
And for mindless hilarity, I give you Gary Busey as the minions:
