{4.5/5} “Imagine the most horrible, terrifying, evil thing you can possibly think of… and multiply it by 6!”

Metro Man and Megamind have been fighting each other for a long time. On the day that Metro City is opening a new museum devoted to its defender Metro Man, Megamind puts his new plan into action. Once again Megamind escapes from jail, with a little help from his assistant Minion. And once again Megamind kidnaps Metro Man’s girlfriend Roxanne. This time, by sheer accident, Megamind discovers Metro Man’s weakness — and things are never the same again.

Megamind was released in 2010.

It’s an animated movie similar in tone to Despicable Me.

When do you have a hero, a villain, a sidekick, and a damsel in distress who are all brilliant characters? In this movie.

There are a few events at the beginning that are obvious, but once it gets going it’s hilarious and extremely clever.

The fun music is by Lorne Balfe (Ironclad) and Hans Zimmer (Man of Steel).

Megamind is voiced by Will Ferrell (Stranger Than Fiction) and Metro Man is voiced by Brad Pitt (World War Z). Roxanne is voiced by Tina Fey (the TV show 30 Rock) and Minion is voiced by David Cross (the TV show Arrested Development). Jonah Hill (21 Jump Street), Ben Stiller (Madagascar 3), and J.K. Simmons (Juno) also provide voices.

The movie was directed by Tom McGrath (Madagascar 3).
