Overview

Notorious Metro City villian Megamind (voice of Will Ferrell) becomes an unlikely savior to the troubled metropolis after defeating beloved do-gooder Metro Man (voice of Brad Pitt) and creating a new opponent who refuses to play by the rules. Megamind was only an infant when his parents loaded him into an emergency escape pod and jettisoned him into space just as their planet was being sucked into a black hole. His destination: planet Earth. Meanwhile, another slightly more wholesome baby sets out on the same trajectory. But while the latter will ultimately land in the home of a wealthy couple and grow up to become Metro Man, hero of Metro City, poor Megamind finds his fate taking the opposite course when his pod crashes in a prison yard, leaving him to be raised by convicts. Later, in grade school, the kids all flock to Metro Man, leaving a frustrated Megamind to embrace a life of diabolical misdeeds. As the years go by, Metro Man and Megamind develop an intense adversarial relationship that pits them in battle over Metro City time and again. Undeterred by his unbroken losing streak, Megamind hatches an ingenious scheme to finally destroy Metro Man by kidnapping pretty reporter Roxanne Ritchi (voice of Tina Fey), and luring the predictable hero into a deadly trap. Then something unexpected happens -- Megamind's plan actually works. Now, with Metro Man out of the picture, Megamind and his Minion (voice of David Cross) stake their claim on Metro City. But what good is ultimate power when you don't even have to fight for it? Realizing that life is simply out of balance without Metro Man to be the hero, Megamind creates a new foe who will be just as righteous and powerful as his fallen adversary. Unfortunately, Megamind's schemes usually have a way of backfiring, and when Metro City's newest savior proves even more evil than Megamind, the blue-hued antihero prepares to fight back with everything he's got.

Reviews:
"[With a] minimalist, modernist look. It creates a crispness that feels more contemporary than retro, which not only is very aesthetically pleasing but makes it easier to savor the film's many sight gags." - 11/05/2010 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "In MEGAMIND, an animated fable about a similar clash of moral titans, funny reigns victorious....[An] utterly delightful film..." - 11/05/2010 Washington Post


"The movie's central joke -- that good and evil are meaningless unless both exist in continual opposition -- is unusually sophisticated for an animated movie. And the screenplay by Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons plays that insight every which way." - 11/05/2010 New York Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] plenty of fun action sequences in the mix. This is Farrell's show and as Megamind he has found his most appealing screen character since Elf." - 11/01/2010 Box Office


"[P]acked with references familiar to longtime superhero aficionados....It pours on the humor..." -- Grade: B+ - 11/04/2010 Uncut


"Will Ferrell has a ball....Director Tom McGrath keeps the action spinning..." - 11/04/2010 Rolling Stone


"Ferrell's high-pitched vocal delivery makes this fey, eccentric, blue-skinned, green-eyed monster engaging..." - 11/01/2010 Variety


"Fast-paced but not frantic, goofily good-natured and attractively designed for widescreen 3D....[With a] nifty concept and high-octane cast..." - 11/01/2010 Hollywood Reporter


"MEGAMIND has plenty going for it, not least a physically elegant frontman with a meticulously groomed mini-beard and lavender-blue skin....There are dashes of visual magnificence here and there..." - 11/03/2010 Movieline


3 stars out of 4 -- "MEGAMIND is an amusing family entertainment and gains some energy from clever dialogue and the fun Will Ferrell has with his character." - 11/09/2010 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "The upside-down premise delivers the gags thick, fast, and with a healthy success rate. Ferrell delivers solidly, again confirming why he's one of the best comedic line-readers out there." - 12/03/2010 Empire


"The saving grace of the amiably amusing MEGAMIND -- apart, that is, from the nimble dynamism that 3D animation lends to its tower-leaping flights and fights -- turns out to be Megamind himself." - 01/01/2011 Sight and Sound


4 stars out of 5 -- "Ferrell has a ball with his character's comic vanity, Pitt is superbly smug and Jonah Hill is enjoyable odious..." - 12/02/2010 Total Film
