Consensus: It regurgitates plot points from earlier animated efforts, and isn't quite as funny as it should be, but a top-shelf voice cast and strong visuals help make Megamind a pleasant, if unspectacular, diversion.

Time Out

For a film whose stock in trade are tongue-in-cheek reversals of comic-book clichť, it too often settles for trite audience-pleasing.

The story's the thing. And this one is as subtly deep as it is ridiculously fun.

It may not raise the bar of this rapidly developing genre, but it manages to pack a lot of fun and spectacle into its running time.

No doubt some of it is charming enough to induce giggles in its preteen target audience... What's needed is a narrative invention to match the technical invention.

I do love Ferrell, whose absurdist man-child routine has always been a matter of taste.

It does have the odd cheeky nod for the grown-ups -- and it is presented in inglorious 3D -- but it's also got a screenplay overflowing with charm, intelligence, wit and a real spark.

Adorable and refreshingly deep, in regard to the theorizing over the nature of good and evil. Is a villain still a villain without a hero? Can there be one… More

A light animated effort that is neither dull nor exciting. It is sadly a bit unoriginal, but still features great visuals.
