Here is a short review of "Minions: The Rise of Gru" movie plot summary.
In 1976, eight years after the events of the first film, 11-year-old Gru (Steve Carell) allowed the Minions to work for him as their new leader.
One day, Gru receives an audition invitation from the Vicious 6, a criminal organization founded by the supervillain Wild Knuckles; now led by newly-appointed leader Belle Bottom (Taraji P. Henson) following Knuckles' death, who hope to find a new member. Gru's interview goes poorly but, much to the outrage of the Vicious 6, he manages to steal a stone capable of turning anyone into one of the animals of the Chinese zodiac by Chinese New Year.
After an escape with Kevin (Pierre Coffin), Stuart, and Bob, Gru finds out that Otto, a large, rounded, blabbering Minion with braces, has traded the stone for a pet rock, causing him to fire the Minions before going alone to find the stone. However, Knuckles, who is revealed to be alive, kidnaps Gru before taking him to San Francisco (RZA).
Without the stone, Kevin, Stuart, Bob set out to San Francisco to find him, ending up piloting a plane there. When they reach Knuckles' house, they are chased by his goons until Master Chow (Michelle Yeoh), a former Kung Fu teacher, helps them out. Chow decides to teach them after they beg for her to do so. When their teaching is complete, the trio head back to Wild Knuckles' home to try and get Gru back. Meanwhile, Otto tries to chase a biker who has the stone as a necklace. When he manages to catch up to him at Death Valley, the biker gives the stone back to Otto and takes him to San Francisco.
Gru starts to bond with Knuckles after the latter's goons quit on him. After saving Knuckles from a crocodile eating him alive in his pool, they decide to rob the Bank of Evil, managing to steal the Mona Lisa. After they get home one night, they see that Knuckles' home has been destroyed by the Vicious 6, thanks to Kevin, Stuart, and Bob breaking in earlier. Knuckles decides to give up, causing Gru to take it upon himself to stop them.
