As with the main film – technically impressive, quite funny but doesn't really have much warmth to it; amusing enough though
13 July 2011 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

As is the way with these animated films from the two big studios, the DVD release usually has a short film associated with it and more often than not they are as good as the main film in some ways. This one sees Megamind getting rid of all his evil weapons of destruction in a sort of yard sale; it seems like a good idea until a button in a box gets pushed and an unused "unspeakable evil" gets activated and focuses on destroying the protector of Metrocity – who at this time happens to be Megamind himself.

As with the main film, this short isn't particularly funny but it is technically pretty impressive. The main battle sequence between the robot and Megamind moves really well and is slick as all get out an it does hold the attention. The short film benefits from having a really simple short plot and as a result it is able to throw in more laughs and be less serious. It still doesn't make it as funny or as smart as it could have been but it is OK. The returning voices focuses on Ferrell and Cross and both of them do well – Cross in particular is a good voice actor.

Overall though it is a reasonable enough little DVD extra – not worth hunting down but quite funny and delivered with style and lacks the over-plotting problems that the main film had.
