Its story's third-act inversions still provide a pointed rebuke to superhero narratives' set-in-stone dynamics.
December 10, 2010
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.
December 8, 2010
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.

If you understand what it's trying to do, you will like it a good deal better than if you don't.
December 2, 2010
Every potential for real emotion is squandered. It feels like a superhero film made by people who don't believe in or care about superheroes.
December 2, 2010
Good stuff, up to a point, but nothing like the passion and brilliance of The Incredibles or Toy Story.
December 2, 2010
Eyeball-opening 3D digimation with eyelid-closing plot.
December 2, 2010
A fun ride but just that.
December 1, 2010
For a film whose stock in trade are tongue-in-cheek reversals of comic-book cliché, it too often settles for trite audience-pleasing.

Should get the whole family laughing, albeit for different reasons.
November 15, 2010
The fast-paced wisecracks and ironic asides that are the studio's hallmark help to push the film past the lumpy, generic storytelling.
November 6, 2010
Every animation studio has its strong suit, but none embraces formula with the zest of DreamWorks.
November 5, 2010
It's a curious concept, and one worthy of a better movie than this, DreamWorks dropping the ball easily crafting one of the more disappointing animated spectacles of this or any other year.
November 5, 2010
Doesn't have that memorable a story and isn't as visually creative as it should be but you can't find actors much better at this kind of material than Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and David Cross.
November 5, 2010
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.
November 5, 2010
You'll enjoy it. And then you'll forget it.
November 5, 2010
The story's the thing. And this one is as subtly deep as it is ridiculously fun.
November 5, 2010
I do love Ferrell, whose absurdist man-child routine has always been a matter of taste.
November 5, 2010
The kiddie set can chortle at Megamind's slapstick and its goofy one-upmanship while adults get a kick out of all the smart spatial tricks that highlight the 3-D effects.
