“A smart, funny and original treat,” Michael O'Sullivan, The Washington Post, DreamWorks Animation’s Megamind puts a whole new hilarious twist on the superhero movie.
Super villain Megamind's (Will Ferrell) dreams have come true when he conquers the city's protector Metro Man (Brad Pitt) gaining control of Metro City. But when a new villain (Jonah Hill) is created and chaos runs rampant, the world's biggest "mind" and his comic sidekick Minion (David Cross) might actually save the day. With an all-star cast - including Tina Fey - and amazing animation, Megamind is packed with high-flying action and non-stop laughs.
Villainy is a way of life, but if a villain doesn't have a hero to battle, can he still expect the same sense of satisfaction from his evil deeds? When Megamind (Will Ferrell) finally defeats his long-time nemesis Metro Man (Brad Pitt), he ecstatically goes about laying ruin to Metro City, reveling in the fact that he can now have anything he wants. Surprisingly, Megamind's glee quickly turns to dissatisfaction as he realizes that the battle was half the fun and everything comes too easy now. Thus begins a plot to turn the nerdy Hal (Jonah Hill) into Tighten, a new hero for Megamind to battle. What Megamind doesn't count on is that Tighten may not turn out to be as good as he's meant to be. Nor does he anticipate falling in love with his old rival's girl Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey). In the end, Megamind finds he must rethink his assumptions about good, bad, and what makes him happy. Megamind and Despicable Me are remarkably similar movies: both deal with villains who are unfulfilled by their evil ways and who, despite their despicable natures, have some essential goodness deep down inside. Both villains are presented in highly stylized animation and the 3-D effects in each film are skillful and effective without being overdone. Megamind has Minion, who watches over him, while Gru has a whole crew of mindless minions supporting his evil ventures. Finally, both films are solidly entertaining. Because the two films were released within a few months of one another, speculation about who copied who will no doubt run rampant, but the bottom line is that both films are well worth seeing.

Megamind is a Megamovie it is fun, exciting, creative, with plenty of laughs for young and old. The cast did a very fine job in the voice dept. Well worth watching more than once.Published 12 days ago by Sailer Bob of Santa Cruz CA.

|Megamind Blu-Ray won't play on PS3||
It isn't just yours! I bought one yesterday and went to turn it on for my boys last night...didn't work. I exchanged it this morning and go another one and the blu ray still doesn't work. And we have a regular blu ray disc player. So it isn't just you.

|Hope that isn't the final cover art...||
Absolutely right! Weird, no? They go to all the trouble to make a beautifully-animated movie with an interesting plot (not to mention the romantic sub-plot), then don't even draw the main character correctly on the cover of one of the FEW pieces of merchandise they actually distribute for...
