Megamind Movie Review

Megamind Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Nov 05, 2010
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

He’s blue, he’s got a huge head, and he’s not your typical “hero.” In Megamind by Dreamworks Will Ferrell provides the voice for a villain that finds himself lost after he actually manages to get rid of his archenemy, Metro Man.

Mega Voices

No review of Megamind would be complete without mentioning the Hollywood heavyweights that lend their voices to the characters:

  • Will Ferrell as Megamind
  • Brad Pitt as Metro Man
  • Tina Fey as Roxanne Rich
  • Jonah Hill as Hal (who later turns into the villainous Titan)

Mega Story

Enough about the acting talent – what about the story??? Megamind (who says he was “born to be a super-villain” in his hysterical accent) was “born” Superman-style as a result of an exploding planet. Simultaneously, another character was also produced - Metro Man. Both land on earth but, while Metro Man is raised in a warm and loving home, Megamind lands in a prison yard full of convicts.


Turns out, ex-cons don’t make the worst parents, and Megamind grows up to be a totally brilliant super-villain – who is utterly unsuccessful. Over the years he tries to take over Metro City repeatedly, only to have every single one of his attempts foiled by Metro Man, who turns out to be the resident super-hero. All of this is documented by an intrepid reporter, Roxanne Ritchi, until one day…


Mega Problem

Surprisingly, Megamind actually manages to defeat Metro Man (this never happened in Superman’s stories, where the hero ALWAYS beat the bad guy) and, all of a sudden, he doesn’t know what to do with himself anymore. You can’t be a super-villain without an annoying hero to defeat, people! Luckily, a new villain decides to come to town. Now the big question on everyone’s mind is: can our ex-villain (Megamind) successfully turn into a hero and save the city?

That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
