Megamind

Critics Consensus

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.

Movie Info

Though he is the most-brilliant supervillain the world has known, Megamind (Will Ferrell) is the least-successful. Thwarted time and again by heroic Metro Man (Brad Pitt), Megamind is more surprised than anyone when he actually manages to defeat his longtime enemy. But without Metro Man, Megamind has no purpose in life, so he creates a new opponent, who quickly decides that it's more fun to be a bad guy than a hero.

    A strong voice cast and a nice twist on the whole superhero genre makes this a nice little film, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version but i bet it would of been better, Maybe not as funny as it should of been but some cool action scenes help it allot.

    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?

    Dreamworks is struggling to maintain quality with alternative projects beyond Shrek, an already ruined franchise, and Kung Fu Panda as their only reliable resources. <i>Megamind</i> is in the center of the quality spectrum. How funny it is that one of the messages in the film is to not judge a book by its cover, and I gotta confess that I purposely skipped watching this film because of how ugly it looked at first glance (I still insist that the characters look ugly; all of them). Yet, <i>Megamind</i> does not fail at surpassing expectations with a remarkable 3D animation quality and, once again the overused yet equally fun technique employed recently: a varied "cool" soundtrack that appeals for the generations of both the children and their parents. It reverses the preconceived concepts we have about heroes and villains, and about good and evil, and that is its smartest twist; the line between them is indeed thin. As trivial as it may sound, people are judged based on the merits of their actions even if it is impossible to make a completely objective judgmental analysis of their backgrounds, which we do not have access to. It was not a waste of time. Keep the efforts coming, but do not give us another <i>Monsters vs. Aliens</i> unless you pay proper tribute or make a creative, challenging spoof. 59/100

    The film was funny and interesting, the story was smartly written and creatively carried out, and Megamind is one of the most kickass protagonists ever created.
