Animated comedy.

2010. 91 min.

Voices: Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill and David Cross.

Director: Tom McGrath.



IN THIS animated twist on the Superman fable two alien babies from a distant planet land on Earth and become bitter rivals.

As adults the super-intelligent Megamind (voiced by Ferrell) becomes a champion of all things evil while Metro Man (Pitt) becomes a crimefighting superhero.

Their rivalry continues with Megamind regularly kidnapping TV news reporter Roxanne (Fey) and Metro Man rescuing her.

Then Megamind overcomes Metro Man and gives Roxanne’s gullible cameraman Hal (Hill) – who’s secretly in love with her – superpowers, turning him into a hero called Titan. But when she continues to spurn him Titan turns evil – and Megamind, who’s missing Metro Man’s rivalry, finds his good side.

This entertaining caper is beautifully animated and the look of the characters totally original.

There are laughs aplenty, especially from Megamind’s sidekick Minion (Cross) – a fish in a bowl with a robotic body – and the voice cast is excellent.

Popcorn fun for everyone.

Bonus: commentary, featurettes, deleted scenes.
