[Megamind] has splendid visuals, a good story, and enough witty dialogue to turn it into an enjoyable experience that's worth checking out.
| Original Score: 3/4
| Original Score: B+
It may not raise the bar of this rapidly developing genre, but it manages to pack a lot of fun and spectacle into its running time.
| Original Score: 3/5
It does have the odd cheeky nod for the grown-ups -- and it is presented in inglorious 3D -- but it's also got a screenplay overflowing with charm, intelligence, wit and a real spark.
| Original Score: 4/5
Would be lost in the crowd, perhaps deservedly so, if it didn't pull aces on its execution.
| Original Score: 7/10
If you have to choose between this and the superficially similar Despicable Me, choose Megamind. It's less predictable, funnier, cleverer and generally more enjoyable.
Hardly a knockout, but Megamind is an immensely enjoyable animated adventure that spoofs and pays homage to the superhero genre.
...often shrewd, colorful, witty, and well animated, I found it oddly flat, too.
| Original Score: 6/10
Straying from a predictable, easily defined structure, Megamind instead serves up consistent surprises, challenging audience expectations and engaging the mind as well as tickling the funny bone.
Falling short of a mind-blowing experience, Megamind is still fine family entertainment that doesn't require deep thinking.
Its story's third-act inversions still provide a pointed rebuke to superhero narratives' set-in-stone dynamics.
| Original Score: B
What it lacks in originality, this wickedly funny take on a superhero villain makes up for in a multi-layered plot, terrific voicing and well balanced energy.

What is a villain if not someone who has been pushed too far in life and has started to push back? And with nothing to push against, what do they become?
A well-plotted, genuinely fun spin on the Superhero/Supervillian genre with talented voice talent put to good use rather than simply stunt-cast
'Megamind' may not be thought-provoking, but it is fun. And, come to think of it, it does give us something to ponder along the nature-or-nurture concepts of destiny.
A snappy script and superior voice work make this animated action-comedy much more fun than expected
It's a sassy comedy with a lot of one-liners, some of which apparently came from improvisation between Ferrell and Fey, both in good vocal form. The quality of animation is outstanding, as you would expect.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Megamind is more like a comedy for adults that children will feel comfortable tagging along to.
A moderately amusing experience... will play better to a younger, less discerning crowd.
