Rated 3.0

Will Ferrell voices the title character, a blue, big-headed alien sent to our planet alongside Metro Man (Brad Pitt), a perfect Superman type. While Metro Man gets an awesome upbringing, Megamind is brought up by criminals in a penitentiary, leading to a relatively bad attitude. When Metro Man leaves their city, Megamind is left with nothing to do, so he creates an adversary, and all hell breaks loose. This is a good-looking piece of animation, made all the more fun by the voice work of Ferrell, Pitt and Tina Fey as the Lois Lane-like reporter. While it is nothing near groundbreaking entertainment, it moves along at a pleasant enough clip, and Ferrell seems to be enjoying himself.
