The Worst Film Ever
Please don't spend money on this.
There's no way I can possibly love it entirely but I just think its ridiculously bad, but enjoyable at the same time.
The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
This was my second watch and I've enjoyed this film both times. Megamind is the villain of the movie, who just wants to be bad. His origin story showed how fate didn't deal him the best cards but he tried to work with what he had. His nemesis, Metro Man, is the good guy. Everyone loves him and every time Megamind and Metro Man square off, the latter wins. But Megamind doesn't give up and keeps trying to be the best villain of all time. He keeps kidnapping Roxanne Ritchie, a journalist and keeps challenging Metro Man. Later in the story, Megamind feels the void that the absence of a hero has left in him, and he decides to create another hero to challenge.The movie was funny and the writing was well thought-out. I don't watch a lot of animated movies and even I enjoyed it thoroughly. Will Ferrell is fantastic as always and Tina Fey does a great job again. I'll probably watch this again some time.
The 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. Megamind has some good animation, interesting characters and some cool songs from movies like Iron Man and Terminator 2 but the obvious 'Superman' rip-off origin, the lackluster humor and a villain who isn't exactly a villain and is bored to death for being alone in Earth makes 'Megamind' a below average animated film. (5/10)
This film follows the trend, of the "good villains" in animated films, more and more evident since "Despicable Me". In fact, both films are from the same year and its difficult not to make comparisons, but I will resist this temptation. The core of this film is a hero vs. villain fight, where Megamind, the villain, manages to finally win, which puts in question the purpose of his life forward, without a good guy who fight against him. Its clearly thought out for teenagers and young adults and action is a fundamental part of the fun, along with good humor. Drawings and animations were really well made, the plot is good and pace is perfect, with no dead moments or annoyingly boring situations. But it lacks that spark of brilliance that you see in films that last forever and become classics. This spark, this film does not have, not being remarkable or memorable. It's a good movie, no doubt, but it's within the standards that studios have used us to. Entertainment and laughter are guaranteed, and that's reason enough to make it worth it.
A super hero movie with a "You've Got Mail" type love story. It is both heart warming and hilarious. The cast is great. The voice acting is great. The animation is great. The story is great. The music is great. Well, you get the picture. Another plus is the movie is not laced with political messages like Zootopia. That movie was ruined for me by annoying politics. Megamind has broad appeal and has something for almost everyone. I will confess that I am inclined to like this type of movie, but even after deducting points for bias, this movie would get a high score. I really wish they had done a sequel. The worst thing I can say about this movie is that it was over too quickly.
