More Info:
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Megamind has presentation in spades. But it also has something even rarer than that. It's got heart.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Megamind's Kryptonite is a common weakness for any comedy so fast out of the blocks: It simply runs out of surprises.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    There's nothing wrong with animation aimed at adults, but this may be the first kids' movie that throws fewer bones to its supposed intended viewers than to their parents.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    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.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    In a family market that's been woefully weak of late, Megamind should not only rescue Metro City but the box office, too.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Visually Megamind is immaculately sleek and gracefully enhanced by 3-D. The score by Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe is refreshingly subtle for an action comedy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Megamind has momentum and dazzle.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Megamind, it turns out, is a villain to root for.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Megamind is largely what one might expect from an animated movie featuring a number of notable comedians in voice roles: an amusing diversion.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Megamind is an amusing family entertainment and gains some energy from clever dialogue and the fun Will Ferrell has with his character.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The bliss of Megamind is the way it pursues solutions for tired problems.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Megamind is snappy good fun.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    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.

    NPR Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    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.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Handsome and generally amusing adventure.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Megamind gets existential, but only in blips, and while it is never anything less than vibrant and exceedingly clever, it is also a rather slight thing for such mega-sized proportions.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    No doubt some of it is charming enough to induce giggles in its preteen target audience.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Tries too hard and ultimately achieves less. It's undone by its own inferiority complex.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Director Tom McGrath keeps the action spinning and trips lightly over the bummer spectacle of watching a bad boy go good.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The voice casting is on the money and these funny people - and I'm including Pitt, who plays this sort of self-mocking Adonis well, even in animated form - make this cute comedy come off.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Moderately funny though immoderately derivative.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Sam Toy

    Like his plans, Megamind verges on greatness but has flaws. But it's fun, energetic and at times dazzling. Expect a stronger sequel - unlikely to be 'darker and grittier', though.

    Empire Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    This is Ferrell's movie, meaning some inspired laughs sandwiched between annoying bits that stretch on well past their usefulness.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Josh Levin

    Mostly, the jokes and the recurrent attempts to tweak the superhero genre serve as a reminder that somebody else has already done it better. Sure, Megamind is pretty good. But why settle for less when you the best is already available on DVD?

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    In ingenuity and charm, this DreamWorks offering isn't up there with "Kung Fu Panda," which remains the sharpest, fullest film from the studio. You may get the feeling that Megamind was made for, and possibly by, really smart six-year-olds. Nothing wrong with that; audiences of all ages can be tickled by the higher form of preadolescent humor.

    Time Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    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.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    The plot is rich, the execution poor.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Megamind falls flat.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A dispiriting return to the tired, star-driven, pop-culture-ridden formula that DreamWorks Animation ran into the ground before its best feature in years, this spring's "How to Train Your Dragon."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Comes off as a derivative wisecracking machine rather than a feat of sustained imagination.

    Variety Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    This routine animated feature is a perfectly fine thing to waste.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Plays out like a clunky, not-so-incredible "Incredibles," or a more-despicable "Despicable Me."

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    If nothing else, I found my son's Kryptonite: boring superhero rip-offs voiced by check-cashing actors. At least Steve Carell used an accent.
