Movie Critic Matt Atchity: 'Despicable Me 2' - Even Better Than The First

Posted: Updated:

With a few exceptions, most sequels don't measure up to the originals. But Matt Atchity from Rotten Tomatoes says that's not the case with Despicable Me 2. Matt says this one actually improves on the first one, and the majority of critics agree.

Most of those critics also agree that even though The Lone Ranger takes place in the west, it doesn't take long to go south. Matt says this one is so bad he draws comparisons to a certain Will Smith summer movie. He also says what should be light hearted summer fare gets way too dark and way too violent, especially for the kids.

Atchity is the editor in chief for the pop-culture website "Rotten Tomatoes." He also hosts a new show on Sirius XM called "Rotten Tomatoes Radio."

The weekly one hour call in show airs Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
