Goofs

When Megamind transforms into different forms, his voice changes to match the character. However, when Megamind transforms into Bernard, his voice remains that of Megamind's. This is explained though as we see the watch recording the warden's voice during Megamind's escape from prison. He didn't get the chance to record Bernard's voice in the rush to replace him in the museum and had to use his own voice. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Megamind: Here's my day so far: went to jail, lost the girl of my dreams and got my butt kicked pretty good. Still, things could be a lot worse. Oh, that's right... I'm falling to my death. Guess they can't. How did it all come to this? Well, my end starts at the beginning... The very beginning!

A Funny Animation with a Parody to the Origins of Superman and a Satire to Superhero Movies
9 June 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When a planet is near to be destroyed, two alien offspring are saved by their parents that launch them to the space in pods. Their fate on Earth is opposite: one that is a beautiful baby with superpowers crashes in the lawn of a mansion, while the other that is ugly and blue with a big head crashes in a prison yard with his companion Minion. They are raised in different environments of the Metro City but studying in the same school for gifted children. While one becomes popular but selfish and egocentric, the other is absolutely outcast by the other students. They become enemies and when they grow-up, the population knows them as the superhero Metro Man and the villain Megamind.

In their fights, Megamind always loses and ends in prison; however, Megamind develops a ray that kills Metro Man, reducing him to a skeleton. After a short period, Megamind feels bored without the battles against Metro Man. Meanwhile he dates the field reporter Roxanne Ritchie, who works with the cameraman Hal Stewart, using the identity of Bernard and sooner they fall in love with each other. When Megamind decides to create another superhero to become his opponent, he accidentally transforms Al Stewart in Titan expecting that he would use his powers for good. However, Titan becomes greed and evil and destroys Metro City. Now Megamind is the only hope to save the world from the mean Titan.

"Megamind" is a funny animation with a parody to the origins of Superman and a satire to superhero movies with an adorable villain. The bad lucky of Megaman, who is oriented by outlaws, plus the prejudice of his mates against his ugly appearance turns him into a quite bad character. However, he is not actually evil but a misguided alien that has the chance for redemption. The voices of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and David Cross give life and humor to delightful characters. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Megamente"
