Will Ferrell is the big blue villain Megamind, while Brad Pitt is the adored superhero Metroman. This isn't your average good vs. evil story.

Capers of catastropheBy ScholesyP (1 review) from Caerphilly , 01 Dec 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]An unusually clever children's film showing the perspective of the bad guy. Will Ferrell is again hilarious and shows how boring life would be for an evil genius in the event that (heaven forbid) a writer depicts evil overcoming good. A miserable life of tedium and loneliness for the only villain left and no-one to fight drives Megamind to create his own hero to battle with (or so he thinks). Personally I thought it was fun and not exactly the predictable children's film that we're all used to.

MEGA TASTICBy a customer , 27 Sep 2012Great film, my 3 & 6 year old love it. It's a good all round family film of the vilain an hero with a bit of a twist. However i think my husband would probably give it a average rating. i,m going to put this one on the christmas list as the kids will watch mag mind time and time again. It,s the sort of film you don't get bored of.

Mega MovieBy movielover1971 (100 reviews) from Leeds , 08 Sep 2012I am not really into animated movies but i really liked the sound of this 1. In some animated movies i for 1 find it hard to place the voices,like Brad Pitt's Megaman but there is no mistaking Will Ferrel's Megamind, the guy is a comedy genius. This film is a must for anyone.

Typical Dreamworks Animation, but still entertaining.By SaitenMar (15 reviews) from Dudley , 20 Aug 2012It seems that Dreamworks Animated films have their own familiar style, one that as become a turn off for me. Megamind was in danger of doing the same, with its moments of silly slightly misplaced humour and odd musical moments. Thankfully it tells a rather charming tale and some great voice acting from the likes of Will Farrell keeps this animated film entertaining.
Megamind tells the tale of an extraordinary mastermind, who since a young age, as been at war with Metro Man (voiced by Brad Pitt) in Metro City. What appears to be a simple story of good vs bad turns into something a little more charming and Will Farrell in particular, voice Megamind, as some amusing moments throughout thanks to some sharp writing.
I went in not expecting much, but I was still entertained. As I said, Dreamworks films always run the danger of being your typical summer animated film, usually targeted an a younger audience (who will enjoy this by the way). I was still left entertained. Its nothing spectacular, and there have certainly been better animated films in the past two years, but you could do a lot worse.
