Synopsis: Packed with high-flying action and non-stop laughs, MEGAMIND puts a whole new hilarious twist on the superhero movie. Super villain Megamind's (Will Farrell) dreams have come true when he conquers the city's protector Metro Man (Brad Pitt) gaining control of Metro City. But when a new villain (Jonah Hill) is created and chaos runs rampant, the world's biggest "mind" and his comic sidekick Minion (David Cross) might actually save the day. With an all-star cast, including Tina Fey, and amazing animation, Megamind "is a smart, funny and original treat."

Villainy is a way of life, but if a villain doesn't have a hero to battle, can he still expect the same sense of satisfaction from his evil deeds? When Megamind (Will Ferrell) finally defeats his long-time nemesis Metro Man (Brad Pitt), he ecstatically goes about laying ruin to Metro City, reveling in the fact that he can now have anything he wants. Surprisingly, Megamind's glee quickly turns to dissatisfaction as he realizes that the battle was half the fun and everything comes too easy now. Thus begins a plot to turn the nerdy Hal (Jonah Hill) into Tighten, a new hero for Megamind to battle. What Megamind doesn't count on is that Tighten may not turn out to be as good as he's meant to be. Nor does he anticipate falling in love with his old rival's girl Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey). In the end, Megamind finds he must rethink his assumptions about good, bad, and what makes him happy. Megamind and Despicable Me are remarkably similar movies: both deal with villains who are unfulfilled by their evil ways and who, despite their despicable natures, have some essential goodness deep down inside. Both villains are presented in highly stylized animation and the 3-D effects in each film are skillful and effective without being overdone. Megamind has Minion, who watches over him, while Gru has a whole crew of mindless minions supporting his evil ventures. Finally, both films are solidly entertaining. Because the two films were released within a few months of one another, speculation about who copied who will no doubt run rampant, but the bottom line is that both films are well worth seeing.

The Film 4/5
Hollywood has made more than its fair share of superhero movies since Superman (1978) was released, but the genre remains one of the most popular. Viewers, especially in North America, enjoy recapturing childhood memories and seeing their heroes on the big screen. Most of the plots are predictable, but that doesn't detract from the fun.
Megamind deviates from the traditional plot in the same way that Despicable Me did. We are asked to sympathize with the villain.
The movie begins with Megamind (Ferrell) leaving his parents in a ship when his planet is on the verge of destruction. Does that sound familiar? References are made to Superman throughout the film. While this is happening, a child is sent to safety from another world close to destruction. The two children fall to Earth and experience very different childhoods. Megamind lands in a prison yard, while the other child falls to wealthy parents and grows up to be Metro Man (Pitt).
Metro Man is squeaky clean and spends his time doing good deeds. He can fly and he's invulnerable. The city worships him. Megamind leaves jail and decides that he can't compete on those terms, so he decides to be bad.Read more ›
At this point I won't ruin the plot twists. Classic Rock and Pop is used as theme songs for the bad guy which made the movie confusing for me. ;)The sound track was 5 stars. What was unfortunate was the actors they chose to read the lines. They added nothing to the movie. When Lithgow, Murphy, and Diaz do a movie, their voices add to the story. This was not the case with Ferrell, Fey, Hill, Cross and Pitt. Could you imagine Eddie Murphy instead of Ferrell? Simply a better movie.
It was a nice voice cast and animation in this film. It's good for a few laughs if you're looking for a nice comedy for kids and adults both!

An unexpected gem. Original and enjoyable plot line with memorable characters and clever and funny lines sprinkled here and there, along with some equally insightful thoughts.Published 14 months ago by Val G.
