Megamind is this year's second animated feature about a hapless villain (Despicable Me). How does the blue version, voiced by Will Ferrell, stack up?
"...Megamind is too goofy-surreal to pack a lot of emotional punch, but it's antically light on its feet, with 3-D images that have a lustrous, gizmo-mad sci-fi clarity."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Megamind may initially seem like a superhero spoof in the comedic vein of Shrek, but it reveals itself to be smarter, funnier, and infinitely more sympathetic than that."
— Simon Abrams, Slant Magazine
"Megamind is an amusing family entertainment and gains some energy from clever dialogue and the fun Will Ferrell has with his character."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Moderately funny though immoderately derivative..."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Though enlivened by some moderately clever twists on the superhero-movie template, Megamind never shakes off a feeling of been-there-spoofed-that."
— Justin Chang, Variety
