wow loved it, a superb lighthearted animation action comedy. Its Dreamworks right, yes they did it again. awsome movie. from the trailer it looked liked a usual super hero flick with a hero, a villain, a city to safe, a girl and some nerds friends. but no i was really impressed with the story, not a Cliche at all. its new very fresh and new plot. i loved the story, screenplay was really good very gripping with tons of laughs and humor. action was fantastic, excellent visuals.
as far as silly entertaining animated movie is concerned its definitely better than Alpha and omega, Shrek 4 and somehow better than Despicable me. The main character is not Metro man by the way, its Megamind, simply brilliant; flawed but lovable, we pity the guy for all the crap he took that drove him to villainy, we appreciate his intelligence while still laughing at his screw-ups and flamboyant nature. But for comic book and superhero fans, this film probably addresses square on why villains appeal, because they make the heroes look good, and if there should be the disappearance of either side, the entire sense of purpose would probably vanish, and interest waned. It is this thought that gets played out in a lot of detail in Megamind as the anti-hero struggles to find his place in society, and discover good values that far outweigh what he has been conditioned for. other characters and their voice overs been done really good.
Truly one of Dreamworks best, crazy humor. good story and lovable characters. Its MEGA AWSOME i'll say. It is genuinely funny and heartfelt without seeming pretentious. The comedic moments work because they really are funny. The serious moments work because they have genuine heart - they balance solemn with sweet with sad, all without losing that honest streak that ties them together. Must watch for both kids and adults.
