The film was originally titled "Master Mind". However, the name had already been trademarked by the makers of the 1970s board game and TV show Mastermind (1972), so it could not be used. It was then going to be titled "Oobermind", which was a misspelling of the term "über-mind." The word "über" refers to something that is large or great; in this case, the title character's over-swollen skull/brain. But it didn't sound right, so it was revised to become "Megamind". See more »

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.
