It regurgitates plot points from earlier animated efforts, and isn't quite as funny as it should be, but a top-shelf voice cast and strong visuals help make Megamind a pleasant, if unspectacular, diversion.

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.
A full-bodied, busy-as-heck, funny-as-heck comedy adventure from Dreamworks that merrily riffs -- in its own fractured way -- on the Superman legend.
Good stuff, up to a point, but nothing like the passion and brilliance of The Incredibles or Toy Story.
For a film whose stock in trade are tongue-in-cheek reversals of comic-book cliché, it too often settles for trite audience-pleasing.
The fast-paced wisecracks and ironic asides that are the studio's hallmark help to push the film past the lumpy, generic storytelling.
No doubt some of it is charming enough to induce giggles in its preteen target audience... What's needed is a narrative invention to match the technical invention.
It's definitely one of my favorite Dreamworks movies.
Though consistently funny and enjoyable, Megamind is essentially average.
[Megamind] has splendid visuals, a good story, and enough witty dialogue to turn it into an enjoyable experience that's worth checking out.
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.
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.
Would be lost in the crowd, perhaps deservedly so, if it didn't pull aces on its execution.
One of the single funniest movies of all time, one of my favorite gags being the donkey kong reference. And all of the cast did a fantastic job. Plus the music was all perfectly picked out.
An entertaining, smart and funny animation that doesn't have a very original or imaginative story but is at least deliciously amusing, with some great twists that I never saw coming. It is infinitely better than Despicable Me, with which comparisons seem inevitable.
Megamind is a highly entertaining and inventive animated comedy that deserves far more praise than what it has received. I really thought that the film was one of those films that really exceeded expectations, and was quite good with the story, voice cast and 9of course animation. The film has plenty of good comedic bits, and to viewers who enjoy a fun, entertaining comedy that is engaging from start to finish, Megamind is definitely worth your time. I thought that the idea here was very good, and of course simple, and while using that, the filmmakers were able to pull off something quite memorable in the process. For what it is, it's an impressive Will Ferrell vehicle, and here he does some very good work as the lead character, Megamind. If you love animated features, Megamind is a film for you. With some great on-screen gags, well crafted story, and good performances from the talent voicing the characters, Megamind succeeds at being a wonderful animated comedy, one that uses the bare minimum to really grab your attention. I felt that this movie definitely deserved more praise than what it initially got, and it should belong among the most memorable genre films. Megamind has great characters, a good idea that just grabs your attention. What Megamind does so well is that it uses its cast to really elevate the film's material, and since the cast is comprised of some of today's funniest actors, it's what gives the film its edge to make it stand out among other animated features, that and it's visuals, effective direction and well thought out comedy. Megamind is well worth seeing if you enjoy animated features and it's a movie that is well worth your time.
Adorable and refreshingly deep, in regard to the theorizing over the nature of good and evil. Is a villain still a villain without a hero? Can there be one without the other? Can one create goodness, or will absolute power corrupt absolutely?
