Megamind is the most brilliant super-villain the world has ever known... and the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way. Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as "Metro Man," until the day Megamind actually defeats him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, the fate of Metro City is threatened when a new villain arrives and chaos runs rampant, leaving everyone to wonder: Can the world's biggest "mind" actually be the one to save the day?
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
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.Bob Mondello, NPR, 11.05.2010
The fast-paced wisecracks and ironic asides that are the studio's hallmark help to push the film past the lumpy, generic storytelling.Bruce Diones, New Yorker, 11.14.2010
This animated feature is what Yogi Berra called "deja vu all over again," its shopworn premise most recently having served the marginally better "Despicable Me" this summer.Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 11.04.2010
I do love Ferrell, whose absurdist man-child routine has always been a matter of taste.Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, 11.05.2010
