judging from the first hour or so it seems just as bad as despicable me. Does it get better?
Well you ought to watch it in full before you judge it anyway.
I'm not sure where you got the idea that "people are proclaiming it saved Disney". In fact, I'm not sure why people would proclaim that anyway since Disney's most recent motion pictures got positive reviews overall and did well at the world wide box office (see: Bolt, Tangled and The Princess and the Frog). It doesn't look to me like they were anywhere near the verge of death, nor does it seem like they were going downhill.
You're right in that the film follows a fairly standard formula, but that doesn't automatically make it bad and un-enjoyable if you ask me. Personally, I didn't think it was awesome or anything, but I had a good time watching it nonetheless.
