Bumbling supervillain Megamind finally defeats his nemesis, the superhero Metro Man. But without a hero, he loses all purpose and must find new meaning to his life.
When i started watching this i thought it would be same ol' kind of superhero movie, but i am really amazed by the way they show the concept of rising good over bad. Will Ferrell is awesome. Brad pitt, Tina Fey justified their roles..
Funny, enjoyable movie..recommended for all.
Surely wanna collect dvd.

Short Opinion: Super Villain Comedy, Good but wishes it was a little more funny.
Feelings: Wantâ€™s someone to call so I can answer saying â€œHOLOâ€.
At first glance the movieâ€™s plot is fairly basic. Itâ€™s your typical hero V. villain; hero always wins and always prevents villain from being too villainy. However the movies portrayal of the villain is a nice change, and it does play out differently than many of your comic books.
The overall â€œcomedy factorâ€ of the movie passed, but not with flying colorsâ€¦ more like hovering colors (corny attempt at being creative). The movie is funny, donâ€™t get me wrong, but it isnâ€™t a movie where youâ€™d call up a buddy and be all â€œDUDE just saw the funniest movie!â€ It had more giggle scenes then laughing scenesâ€¦and yes I said giggle.
The movieâ€™s visuals were very good. The animations and special effects were flawless and worked well to really give you the whole superhero vibe. The buildingâ€™s in Metro City looked great, and it was almost sad to see so much destroyed by all the reckless Super Humans.
All in all the movie was good. Parents this is a family appropriate movie and for those of you older then 12, itâ€™ll make you laugh too. The voice over actors did a phenomenal job which made the movie fun to watch. Megamindâ€™s random mispronunciation of words has inspired me to say â€œHoloâ€ (pronounced Hole-oh) when I answer my phone. I enjoyed the movies ending and Iâ€™m sure you will tooâ€¦ unless youâ€™re demented.
Interesting (in a "not what was expected" kind of way) film.
"Megamind" previews played it off as a comedy - turns out it was anything but - even for kids. Waiting with baited breath the entire film for something funny to happen or be said (something OTHER than what we'd seen in the trailers), the laughs never came (even with WF as the main character).
As with any superhero type movie, there's a lot of action. The movie feels like it was built around the fact that it would be shown in 3D, not built around a great story.
That said, it wasn't a bad movie. Call it yet another angle on the "Is the bad guy really a bad guy?" theme that continues to be grow since its inception in the broadway musical "Wicked".
If you haven't seen Megamind - don't. There's really no reason to spend the money. Big WF fans and kids - hold off for the .99 cent video version.
