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.
