Megamind

DreamWorks (Madagascar, Shrek) 3D animated comedy. After super-villain Megamind (Will Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Brad Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan (Jonah Hill), who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life.

This latest DreamWorks toon, while not without its moments of wit and emotion, comes off as a derivative wisecracking machine rather than a feat of sustained imagination.

Like Monsters Vs. Aliens, a retro-stylised fantasy-satire that balances knowingness with affection, winning kids and olds over in the process. Wry, spry and very funny.

Visually Megamind is immaculately sleek and gracefully enhanced by 3-D

Good stuff, up to a point, but nothing like the passion and brilliance of The Incredibles or Toy Story.

An amusing family entertainment and gains some energy from clever dialogue and the fun Will Ferrell has with his character.

Fast-paced but not frantic, goofily good-natured and attractively designed for widescreen 3D.

Like his plans, Megamind verges on greatness but has flaws. But it’s fun, energetic and at times dazzling. Expect a stronger sequel — unlikely to be ‘darker and grittier’, though.

By his own admission, Megamind (Will Ferrell) had a “fairly standard childhood”.

The idea of a Superman pastiche would make for a fun movie and appeal to adults too in the hands of PIXAR - whose MONSTERS INC, UP and WALL-E work on several levels. But this is typical DREAMWORKS fare - a neat idea (eg. Panda + Kung Fu = $$$) - given a flimsy script, a good voice cast and a cool trailer and... that's all folks! Will Ferrell is fun but...

Clearly Moana you were watching a different movie ( or have you even bothered to watch it?!?) This was a funny movie for the adults and the kids, better than Dispicable Me.
