Goofs

When Minion confronts Megamind about dating Roxanne Ritchie, Megamind disables Minion's arm. When Megamind says maybe he doesn't want to be the bad guy anymore, Minion recoils with a gasp and lifts both arms in surprise which he shouldn't have been able to do with a disabled arm. Minion is then shown driving away on his Segway, and his arm is once again disabled. See more »

Superbly made movie
8 November 2010 | by (Guelph) – See all my reviews

I found this movie very entertaining and provoking in both thought and emotion. It was also a very human movie. The Buddhist motifs were exaggerated but well woven into the story, and it captured the most common face of evil very very vividly.

Megamind is also biting satire and it spares no one, but has that core of truth. It can be painful to watch, especially when you see yourself.

If you identify with the main character in the movie, you will almost certainly love this movie. The movie also vividly captured many awkward and tragic human situations in a way only animation can.

The voice acting and animation were perfectly suited to the movie and the 3d complemented the movie without being distracting.

I wouldn't classify this movie as one for children. The only fault I can find in this movie is that Megamind finds purpose and fulfilment though and for the heroine. It would be so wonderful if this were indeed a reflection of reality, but it is more a necessity of Hollywood. Few women and superheros can withstand that pedestal for long. The best you can hope for is to find these things along with a women, and even that is rare enough.
