Megamind Reviews

May 8, 2019
Ferrell has so much fun that it rubs off and manages to work. It's not quite on the level of Pixar films or "Shrek," but it is still good enough -- a worthy family film for the holiday season.

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.

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.

This is a harmless animated movie that's full of empty laughs. The main problem with all those empty laughs is that they arrive wrapped in a package you've seen before, probably even if you're still a kid.

Hardly a knockout, but Megamind is an immensely enjoyable animated adventure that spoofs and pays homage to the superhero genre.
March 15, 2011
There's a distinctly deflated ambiance to the shenanigans, leaving the picture serious eye-candy on the prowl for bellylaughs it infuriatingly never finds.

Megamind is dramatically and comedically inert.
February 20, 2011
...often shrewd, colorful, witty, and well animated, I found it oddly flat, too.
February 10, 2011
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.
February 6, 2011
Falling short of a mind-blowing experience, Megamind is still fine family entertainment that doesn't require deep thinking.
January 5, 2011
Its story's third-act inversions still provide a pointed rebuke to superhero narratives' set-in-stone dynamics.

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?
