I didn’t think to watch Megamind at first, but when it was #1 for two weeks in the USA, I guess that many Americans can’t be wrong.
The movie tells of Megamind (Will Ferrell), who is sent to Earth by his parents at only eight days old. However, his arrival was marred by another alien infant, later known as Metro Man (Brad Pitt), whose spaceship sends Megamind to a prison instead of a loving family. Metro Man becomes a superhero while Megamind becomes a supervillian, and so, their rivalry begins.
Megamind’s attempts to be evil can be hilarious because he keeps kidnapping Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey), a news reporter, to lure Metro Man out. Even Roxanne is unfazed by his attempts to scare her. Plus, Megamind defines unfathomable as… without fathom. Minion is rather cute as his sidekick and is the one with all the ideas even though he’s just an alien fish.
