After super-villain Megamind (Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Tighten (Hill), who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life.Written by
Megamind is 5'5" tall. However, he is only 4½ heads tall proportionately. This makes him the same head to body proportions as a toddler or a Lego mini figure. See more »
When someone disguises as another through the watch, the person is physically similar to the impersonated one, with exception of the eyes. This is seen when Megamind impersonates as the Warden, Metro Man and Bernard. But at the end, when Minion impersonates Megamind, his eyes are green, when they should remain brown, as Minion's are.

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!

The opening title, and part of the closing credits, is composed out of a gallery of newspaper clippings and documents. See more »
Every so often I watch a film with limited enthusiasm, simply because I have time me to kill. On these occasions I sometimes stumble across a true delight and am pleasantly surprised...a film that maybe had "mixed" reviews or that received little attention upon its release. Megamind is such a film; a great work of animation and character development.
The film should delight adults and children with enough in it to satisfy all tastes. There is also plenty of amusing and hilarious satire with regard to superhero movies and super villains.
Many superheros and villains are often depicted as wholly good or wholly bad, having at best some traumatic event setting them on their inevitable and unchangeable course. This film actually highlights certain sources of inner turmoil and insecurities of the characters in a very entertaining way and develops the characters as they work these out.
There's also plenty of rip roaring action on the way.
Great stuff! Highly recommended!
