Megamind Reviews

April 4, 2011
This is a harmless animated movie that's full of empty laughs. The main problem with all those empty laughs is that they arrive wrapped in a package you've seen before, probably even if you're still a kid.

There's a distinctly deflated ambiance to the shenanigans, leaving the picture serious eye-candy on the prowl for bellylaughs it infuriatingly never finds.

Megamind is dramatically and comedically inert.
December 9, 2010
In its attempt to spoof the superhero genre, Megamind just may be too smart for its own good.

Is Megamind just a vehicle for Will Ferrell to use funny voices and shout a lot?
December 8, 2010
The movie around Ferrell's performance isn't nearly as good as he is.
December 7, 2010
It's just a shame the filmmakers didn't have any tricks up their sleeve to enliven a rather rote superhero movie experience.
December 6, 2010
Despite the terrific voice cast and eye-catching animation, this seems disappointingly formulaic and fails to offer real laughs.
December 2, 2010
Every potential for real emotion is squandered. It feels like a superhero film made by people who don't believe in or care about superheroes.
December 2, 2010
Eyeball-opening 3D digimation with eyelid-closing plot.

Megamind is perfectly fine for the kids, but adults might find their own megaminds wandering at various points throughout a film that doesn't compare to The Incredibles when it comes to affectionately tweaking the superhero genre.
November 11, 2010
It's not bad -- simply unremarkable.

Oh DreamWorks, we know you can achieve greatness; why do you so eagerly refuse to do so?
November 9, 2010
An unfortunate regression back to short-term pop-culture disposability ... At the screening I attended, the sounds of kids fidgeting almost drowned out the extended Marlon Brando imitation.
November 8, 2010
After the commercial and critical success of How to Train Your Dragon, which elevated the usual father-son tale, Megamind's shortcomings seem even worse by comparison.
November 6, 2010
It's borrowed and blue. The homage to 'Superman' gets old and the film is only slightly better (and very similar to) 'Despicable Me.' Anything original tends to fall flat.
November 6, 2010
What begins as one witty, unstoppable blast eventually succumbs to a flat story elevated by its consistently terrific animation.
November 6, 2010
Three dimensions or two, the one-dimensional plot has little appeal.
November 6, 2010
Every animation studio has its strong suit, but none embraces formula with the zest of DreamWorks.
November 6, 2010
If celebrity voices and an excess of licensed pop music are your thing, you might forgive the lack of ambition here.
