Megamind- Movie Review


Trailers can be deceptive. Such is the case with Megamind. When I saw the trailer, I thought this movie would be awesome but sadly it wasn’t so.

Megamind is a wanna-be bad guy who wants to be known as a bad-ass villain all over the world. In order to do that, he tries to kill the good superhero- Metro Man but realizes that evil can’t exist without good. So he creates a good superhero to show off his being bad skills. But can he stay evil and not experience what love is? Can the good superhero remain good without taking advantage of his superpowers?

Remember ‘Despicable Me’ that released just a few months ago? Well, that had a similar story and guess what… that was way better! In case you missed that and liked this, go watch Despicable Me and you’ll agree with me.

I didn’t fall in love with Megamind… the central character. There are a lot of flaws in the story telling because of which I didn’t see myself going “Awww” or “Oh no!” etc.  The animation is great but I didn’t feel any connection with the story. It was just going on… you know what I mean? Brad Pitt’s voice was hardly used unfortunately. I think he has a great voice! So yeah, these Hollywood guys do a great job with the minutest expressions where animation is concerned and lots of detailing but character detailing wasn’t given as much importance because of which it was just ok for me as a movie.

Rating– 2.5/5
