The supervillain Megamind finally conquers his nemesis, the hero Metro Man... but finds his life pointless without a hero to fight.
Dreamworks brings its new animated comedy to the big screen in the form of Megamind, an evil blue alien with a giant head. Megamind was sent away from his planet as a small child just moments before his planet was sucked into a black hole. At the same time another space ship left the planet heading for earth also. And so began the rivalry of Megamind and Metro Man. Even in grade school Metro Man was always the popular one, as all of Megaminds creations seemed to do more bad than good. Then Megamind realized that maybe instead of trying to be popular he should be evil.
The movie is voiced by an all star cast of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Brad Pitt, Ben Stiller, David Cross and J.K. Simmons. Will Ferrell is funny as always and really does a good job doing the voice acting, my favorite part is when he is voicing "Space Dad". The only actor in the movie that just doesn't feel like he fits is Jonah Hill. He is does a good job as the dorky camera guy but doesn't quite fit the role of Titan.
The animation is what you expect out of a Dreamworks movie, it looks great and even better in 3D. Dreamworks still isnt on the same level as Pixar, but they still do a good job.
Megamind is not on the same level as movies like Up and Wall-E, but it is fueled by a very funny cast and a fun super hero story that the whole family will enjoy.
