If it's difficult to find novelty in Megamind, it's also hard not to like.

Middle-School boys are the target audience for the shifting personalities, robot minions and building-smashings. People above that age will mostly just endure it all...

Megamind has some funny moments, silly mispronunciations and comical socio-political references. But it suffers from being the second animated movie this year to feature a dastardly villain for a hero.

More impressive than the multi-dimensions is "Megamind's" minimalist, modernist look. It creates a crispness that feels more contemporary than retro, which not only is very aesthetically pleasing but makes it easier to savor the film's many sight gags.

One of those movies that disappears too quickly, leaving memories of better ones in its wake.

[A] handsome and generally amusing adventure.

Megamind has momentum and dazzle.

Megamind is well-versed in superhero routine without turning blasé. The boredom of formulas and roles and expectations is very much its point.

... 'Well, that was fun. A lot better than I expected.' An assessment with which this reviewer can concur.

There's nothing wrong with animation aimed at adults, but this may be the first kids' movie that throws fewer bones to its supposed intended viewers than to their parents.

You have seen all this before.

Megamind is largely what one might expect from an animated movie featuring a number of notable comedians in voice roles: an amusing diversion.
November 4, 2010
This set-up is bright and amusing, even if it does feel recycled from bits and pieces of such recent animated landmarks as The Invincibles with its superpowers and Despicable Me with its villain.

This is Ferrell's movie, meaning some inspired laughs sandwiched between annoying bits that stretch on well past their usefulness.
November 3, 2010
Cute and funny at times, but with a lot of dead spots.
November 3, 2010
Superb 3-D graphics and silly running gags (Megamind routinely mispronounces words such as school) should keep kids amused, while sly political and pop culture references will get laughs from adults.

Megamind is less a satire of dastardly deeds than a nimbly spectacular comedy of ego.
November 3, 2010
This is the kind of movie where "Bad to the Bone" is considered a clever musical cue because, you know, Megamind is bad. To the bone.

Unfortunately, the underdeveloped story and characters seem to be there to service the visuals, rather than the other way around.

I found my son's Kryptonite: boring superhero rip-offs voiced by check-cashing actors. At least Steve Carell used an accent.
