Megamind has presentation in spades. But it also has something even rarer than that. It's got heart.
83
Too goofy-surreal to pack a lot of emotional punch, but it's antically light on its feet, with 3-D images that have a lustrous, gizmo-mad sci-fi clarity.

San Francisco Chronicle
Megamind, it turns out, is a villain to root for.
75
Megamind has momentum and dazzle.
75
Megamind is an amusing family entertainment and gains some energy from clever dialogue and the fun Will Ferrell has with his character.
70
More impressive than the multi-dimensions is Megamind's minimalist, modernist look. It creates a crispness that feels more contemporary than retro, which not only is very aesthetically pleasing but makes it easier to savor the film's many sight gags.
70
Megamind is snappy good fun.
70
The kiddie set can chortle at Megamind's slapstick and its goofy one-upmanship while adults get a kick out of all the smart spatial tricks that highlight the 3-D effects.
65
Tries too hard and ultimately achieves less. It's undone by its own inferiority complex.
63
Director Tom McGrath keeps the action spinning and trips lightly over the bummer spectacle of watching a bad boy go good.
50
Has some funny moments, silly mispronunciations and comical socio-political references. But it suffers from being the second animated movie this year to feature a dastardly villain for a hero.
40
Plays out like a clunky, not-so-incredible "Incredibles," or a more-despicable "Despicable Me."
